This interrogation video comes days after an SUV ran over protesting farmers in Uttar Pradesh’s Lakhimpur Kheri district where 8 people, including 4 farmers and a local journalist were killed in the violence on Sunday.

During interrogation, the man revealed that he was sitting in the back seat of black Fortuner that had five people in it. The vehicle belonged to an ex-Congress MP, he said and then he gives out the car number.

Who was in the car ahead, asked the policeman, the man replied don’t know. When the policeman asked who was in the Thar, he answered Bhaiya Ke Saathi which means they were all his men, the man replied yes, they were all his men.

Sharab nahi doodh piyo: Uma Bharati ties stray cows outside liquor shop in Madhya Pradesh | WATCH

Published

on

Continuing her campaign for a stringent liquor policy in Madhya Pradesh, BJP leader Uma Bharati, Thursday, tied stray cows outside a liquor shop in the state’s Orchha town as she urged people to shun alcohol and drink milk instead.

The former MP chief minister tied stray cows outside a shop selling Indian-made foreign liquor (IMFL) in Orchha, a town in Niwari district famous for its temples and palaces and raised the slogan Sharab Nahi, Doodh Piyo (drink milk, not liquor).

The senior BJP leader is spearheading an anti-liquor campaign in Madhya Pwhich she has linked to alleged rise in crimes against women in the BJP-ruled state. Bharati urged the Shivraj Chouhan-led regime not to cash in on people’s drinking habit.

On Tuesday, Bharati announced a programme to convert liquor stores into cow shelters, “Madhushala Me Gaushala”, as she claimed that crimes against women in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh are the result of liquor consumption.

The BJP leader has put forward the demand for a “controlled” liquor policy in the state and pushed for converting liquor outlets who are in violation of rules, into cow shelters.

The Hindutva leader had on January 29 reached a temple near a liquor store in Ayodhya Nagar trisection of the state capital and announced she will stay there till January 31, awaiting announcement of a new liquor policy by the government.

In June last year, the BJP leader had thrown cow dung at the same liquor shop. In March 2022, she threw a stone at a liquor shop in Bhopal.

Fearing a repeat of last year’s incidents, a salesman of the outlet immediately downed the shutters.

Bharati said she was in part responsible for the prevailing alcohol abuse in the states as she sought votes for the BJP in the 2003 Assembly polls and since then the party is in power in the state, barring 15 months in 2018-2020 when the Congress took the reins.

The former CM had earlier pushed for total prohibition in the state, but has softened her stance on the issue for the past few months and now seeks regularization of alcohol sale in Madhya Pradesh, where Assembly elections are due by the end of the year.

The accident has been captured on camera. The video of the mishap is now going viral on social media, where massive sparks can be seen under the car as it continues to drag the bike, ignoring attempts made by other commuters to stop it.
