Saryu Roy and Raghubar Das condemn police action
Jamshedpur, April 26: Following a controversy over a vendor found selling fruits with a VHP banner on his pushcart in Kadma, senior SP, Anoop Birtharay on Sunday said that the police will not allow anyone to disturb social fabric of the city. After the news came to light the police on Saturday evening seized the banner.
While addressing media Birtharay informed that the police have not lodged an FIR against the fruit-vendor, but they will serve a notice to the vendor under Section 107 of the CrPC and also on the person who had lodged a complaint highlighting the act of fixing the banner.
“ We want people to follow the norms of lockdown and should not indulge in any such controversy. There may be many shops having sign-boards carrying a prefix of Hindu or Muslim, but at the present situation no one is allowed to fix a signboard or banner at one’s shop by indicating such communal term,” said SSP.
The vendor, identified as Raj Kumar had put a VHP banner, having inscribed on it that it is a “Hindu Fruit Shop. Incidentally, a youth who is a resident of Dhatkidih had sent a tweet to Chief Minister Hemant Soren on the issue. Soren had instructed the senior SP, Anoop Birtharay to take necessary action, leading Birtharay to instruct the Kadma OC, Ranjit Kumar to remove the VHP poster.
As the Kadma OC reached to the fruit vendor shop and wanted to remove the poster, the fruit seller protested. As the news spread VHP’s Kadma branch supporters strongly protested the police action, but the fruit vendor had to remove the poster.
The incident was led a war of words in social media. Jamshedpur East independent legislator Saryu Roy and also former Chief Minister Raghubar Das took to Twitter condemning police action against the vendor.
