Chandra Prakash Ganga ji, party general secretary ji and our Jammu district president
Listen, people of Rasana, If you are doing this agitation you should do it with force. This agitation should not be the like the way you are doing. If you can’t do a strong agitation then go home. It has to be a strong one.
But after seeing you all here, I am now confident this fight for truth and justice you have started will be won by you.
These people (the PDP government) have no shame. I and Ganga are from the same government. What kind of investigation is the Crime Branch doing? They are so intelligently carrying out this (laughing) investigation. They are asking, arresting our people but are they asking questions to Gujjars?
No one trusts the police. They first gave the investigation to the police, then to the SIT and then it was given to the Crime Branch. That means no one is trusting the police.
Throughout my life, I have never cared about anyone. I don’t know anyone. I only know you.
Loud cheers follow
It is because of you, we are standing here today, [referring to the MLA of BJP on stage and other leaders]. If you are going to get beaten up, then why will you vote for us? We are saying it again and again that the girl had to be given justice. We are sad and no one is justifying it. Everyone said that.
But without a reason, they are trying to give this incident an undue hype.
In the Assembly, this issue was raised by the Opposition and I tried to even tell them there. Every day there was an issue in the Assembly when people said we will arrest them (accused) and all that. The Opposition was saying that in Kathua there is zulm (atrocity) is being done on Muslims, and I was sitting in the same Assembly.
Listen, I come from the party which has fought for its entire life for the country. How is it possible that someone among us is going to do this thing to the girl? Is it possible our men will do this, [asking people] Is anyone going to tolerate this. Not at all.
These buggers were trying to malign our image inside the Assembly. Every day, every morning I tolerated them in the Assembly.
They are naive(PDP). Is this their father’s government? It is half ours and half theirs.
If we step down it won’t be there. A leader from Srinagar (Omar Abdullah) said in the Assembly there should not be a CBI inquiry in the case.
What is this threat to a CBI inquiry that he is scared of? Are there people from Rasana in CBI? If there is a CBI inquiry how are the accused going to be saved? If it is possible for the CBI to get big people country, why can’t they do an impartial investigation?
There is only one solution for this, there should be an agitation, and that is the only solution…If you don’t trust the police and SIT, why are you employing these people? You only get CBI because local police had failed and how is it possible that they have caught so many big people in India.
I have been drinking poison for a long time. This state doesn’t belong to only one community… I know what they can do. You don’t need to worry about them. You don’t have to worry about them. This state is not of their fathers.
Our party was made by you. You did some good demonstrations. When slogans were being raised these people started making dossier.
On this dossier you slap a PSA (Public Safety Act) on people. Are you going to put these people behind bars because they raised slogans?
You raise slogans and protest against injustice. Why should PSA be slapped on you? You were raising slogans for your own rights. If you are doing agitation do it with proper force. If you don’t want to do it go home then.
They are saying there is Section 144, [asking people]. Do you know what it is?
It is nothing! (Kahk nahi)
Here one girl was killed and there have been many women missing since 1947, no one is asking about them. So does it make a difference?
Someone died in Chani, no one did anything for him.
Listen what kind of law is this you are implementing which is one-sided. You are discriminating people on the basis of religion.
You have asked for a CBI probe, we are with you to do the agitation. In front of the people, no one can do anything.
Only one man does need justice. Every one needs justice. A man slapped someone and you levelled PSA on him and your police are dividing people. Then you show law on one and on the other six you don’t.
You are beating up people and torturing them. Why are they beating them? There are modern technics. Do a DNA test, narco test everything will be clear…So why are you beating them? Instead of making rounds of districts and why are you beating these five people?
You have got an SSP from Kashmir. Are police officers sick here in Jammu? You have got people from outside. One person goes on leave another comes.
Government’s job is to provide a sense of security not to provide them with a sense of insecurity. The people should trust the government, I have fought five elections I know everything. I have been an MP.
People from Kooth are very clever. People were not what they are today. Is everyone going to teach us law now? We are with you and always will be with you.
And listen if your MLA goes from this place, he is now saying that people are with us and that is the reason we came here.
You have to keep your MLA with you and he will walk in front of you. You will curse your MLA, but there are games being played here. You have to be cautious. You have a non-political organisation (Hindu Ekta Manch) the MLA here is scarred. He is a nice man. No one can be like Chaudhary Lal Singh, This man (MLA) will always with you.
Your MLA is your way to the government and for the agitation, without him, you can’t win this battle. MLA will be with you.
He kept his point and he is not going to leave. Don’t make this a political issue. This is your issue and you have to win this issue.
If anyone has done injustice to the girl he is a neech and a low man. If anyone is thinking, in this case, anyone is going to make an issue out of it we won’t allow it. If you think people are going to make a stain on the name of this issue that we will not allow.
Here people with 15 and 20 stars on their shoulders can’t do anything: [referring to police] Don’t make much drama here, you don’t have to make people fearful.
If you have to give an interview and get the IAS, KAS or KPS, who is going to get the courage when it comes to dealing with these people? If you are frightening people this is not going to work.
Our slogan is Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas.
If (Narendra) Modi says I made your government and these people are being beaten is he going to leave us?
Listen, people from Rasana if someone touches you or puts his finger on you I will assure you that it is our guarantee we will deal with them. But you don’t have to migrate from here. Why should you leave, our villages in Kathua? It is a matter of shame.
We are Dogras, we have fought fights for centuries.
I will come back again if something wrong happens. You should continue with what you are doing if your demands are not met I will show you the way how to do it.
This committee should remain in coordination.
We are with you and we will always be with you. (courtesy-thefirstpost.com)
