Allahabad HC expresses concern over parties giving tickets to criminals

Published

on

Prayagraj (Uttar Pradesh), Sep 22: The Allahabad High Court has expressed concern over the trend of political parties welcoming gangsters and criminals involved in organised crime into their parties and giving them tickets.

The court said that such parties were painting a Robinhood image of the criminals.

“This trend needs to be stopped as soon as possible. All the political parties should sit together and a decision is required to be taken by them that gangsters and criminals will be discouraged in politics and no political party will give ticket to them in elections,” observed Justice Pradeep Kumar Srivastava on Tuesday.

The judge said this while rejecting the bail applications of two policemen, arrested for allegedly leaking information regarding police action to gangster Vikas Dubey before the Bikru incident in Kanpur last year.

The court also said that people should also exercise caution while making their choice for a candidate in an election.

The court further said, “With time, it has been seen that the police force, not as a whole, but in small groups, has gone through a phase of moral and professional deterioration.”

The court also added that the police face some real difficulty in combating organised crime and criminal activities.

“The police stations are mostly under-manned and the strength of the police force is remarkably less in comparison to the population. The police have to act in accordance with legal norms and while doing so, they are required to avoid any excesses and human rights violations,” the court said.

The court observed, “Who will police the police?”

The two policemen whose bail applications have been rejected are then station officer of Bikru, Vinay Tiwari, and sub-inspector, K.K. Sharma. Both were arrested for allegedly leaking information about police action to the gangster resulting in the Bikru village ambush on July 3, 2020, in which eight policemen were gunned down by the gangster and his aides.

While rejecting the bail plea of both the applicants, the court said that it was evident that the accused/applicants had prior information regarding the police raid and they ‘evidently’ revealed it to the gangster.

During the court proceedings, the petitioner’s counsel submitted that there was no direct or indirect evidence against the Station Officer.

However, additional advocate general Manish Goyal, representing the state government opposed the bail application, saying that this was not a case of simple crime.

Call me “Dada”, not “Sir”, Tripura CM Biplab Kumar Deb to employees

Agartala: In what appears to be a step to boost the morale of the government employees, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb on Sunday asked the government employees to call him “Dada” instead of “Sir”. “Call me Dada, not sir. It enhances the warmth of the relationship”, Deb told a gathering of government employees.

Deb exhorted the government employees of the state especially ASHA and Anganwadi workers of the state asking them not to dishearten as the state government was eager to improve their pay structure.

“I salute the ASHA and Anganwadi workers of my state. The level of dedication that my sisters have shown during the pandemic period deserved applause. I know, they want to hear good news from me and I am assuring you all that this government will not disappoint anyone”, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb told a gathering of government employees at Badharghat sports school field organized by Vivekananda Vicha Manch (VVM).

VVM has emerged as a big platform of government employees, of late, and Sunday’s public rally was its first big gathering to thank the Chief Minister for the series of steps his government took for the welfare of the employees.

“I know what challenges you people are facing. Nothing is hidden in front of me. I am assuring you all everything will be taken care of in the due course of time”, he added.  Lauding the efforts of government employees Deb said, without them no government office can function.

“Due to the efforts of government employees, people can access the benefits of the state sponsored welfare schemes. But, for a prolonged period the employees did not get their right to do something freely. They were trapped in the clutches of unions. In the previous regime, Left sponsored unions used to enjoy supreme power which had reduced the whole work culture of the state to tatters. In 2018, you people showed courage and voted BJP to power”, said Deb.

“Despite fund constraints, the state government is positively working on the issues of DA and other factors pertaining to the interest of the government employees. Our government has already addressed a number of issues related to financial benefits. The ad-hoc promotion, increment for Group D, Group C employees, regularization of SSA teachers, seventh pay scale, UGC scale for professors, special benefit for LTC are to name a few. All these indicate what we want to do and we shall do what we promise”, the Chief Minister said.

The Chief Minister also asked the officials not to call him “sir” suggesting them to refer to him as “Dada” as it makes the relationship stronger and cherished. The Chief Minister also distributed clothes among children of Badharghat sports school during the programme. State BJP President Manik Saha, Minister Ram Prasad Paul, Minister Sushanta Chowdhury, MLA Mimi Majumder, state BJP Vice President and president of Vivekananda Vichar Manch Rajib Bhattacharjee also spoke on the occasion.
