Welcoming the new members,Rajya Sabha member Sanjay Singh said, “The party will be strengthened with the arrival of Faisal Khan and the fight for the welfare protection of minorities and the underprivileged will soar new heights. Rebuking Yogi Government over the increasing crime in the State, Sanjay Singh said that the current scenario in Uttar Pradesh is unfavourable for the under privileged.
The prime case is of Raebareli, where a poor rickshaw puller dalit boy died due to police brutality in the police station. He was arrested on the pretext of stealing a motorbike and was brutally beaten in the police station.
Sanjay Singh added that the UP Police brutally curbed the protest of the SC/ST Wing of Aam Aadmi Party, which was protesting against the brutal act of policemen.
“I strongly criticise the brutality shown by UP police to other demonstrators Tushar, Lalit, Vinay Kumar and we will undertake legal action against them. He went onto add that police uniform is solely provided for the protection of citizens and not to show brutality. I demand that Rs. 50 lakh should be given as compensation to the poor dalit boy in Lalganj, Raebareli. The SP should be suspended. He demanded a court case under Section 302 of the IPC to be levied on those involved in the death of the boy,” he said.
Talking about the increasing crimes in the state, AAP State President Sabhajeet Singh said that the crime against dalit are increasing drastically in the state, be it the Laalganj killing of dalit boy or the triple murder in Agra & Hardoi.
Speaking at the event, Faisal Khan Lala said, I feel honoured and privileged to be a part of the Aam Aadmi Party.” He added that the Delhi Model should be adopted by all the states for development. Faisal Khan Lala said that while other states are facing troubles due to the surging electricity prices, Arvind Kejriwal government is providing 200 units free electricity.
