Using of lathis on saints and seers shameful: Maneka
Badaun (UP): Calling the government at the Centre as "shameless" and an "habitual liar", BJP MP Maneka Gandhi on Saturday said the police action on yoga guru Ramdev in Delhi shows how low the government can stoop to.
"Congress is shameless and has become an habitual liar," Maneka told reporters while reacting on Delhi police affidavit in the Supreme Court regarding taking action against yoga guru Ramdev and his supporters at Ramlila ground in Delhi on June 5.
"Baba Ramdev staged satyagrah after taking due permission. There could be nothing more shameless than the government using lathis on saints and seers," Maneka alleged.
Crores of people watched the entire incident on the news channels in which several people were injured in police lathicharge, she said.
Attacking the Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh, she said that he has his own agenda and does not think before speaking.
"It seems that he has become voice of some other person and this should be probed throughly," the BJP leader alleged.
