One day after 93 members of the Gujarat unit of the Aam Aadmi Party, including its senior leadership, were jailed for protesting in front of the BJP headquarters in Gandhinagar over the leaking of the questionnaire in the chief secretary recruitment exam, the AAP responded to the saffron party on Wednesday. , calling their leaders “shameless.”
“The incidents that have occurred in the last two days are staggering. GSSSB President Asit Vora has played with the lives of thousands of students, but it is outdoors, but 93 of our workers, including 28 women, are in jail, ”said Gulab Singh Yadav, AAP Gujarat in charge, in a press. conference in Ahmedabad on Wednesday.
The AAP has demanded the removal of GSSSB president Asit Vora over the scandal. “Vora, who is behind the conspiracy, has not been charged under IPC 120 (B) for criminal conspiracy. The way BJP Gujarat President CR Patil and Interior Minister Harsh Sanghavi have reacted to the incident amazes me how shameless they can be. Vora should have been removed and an FIR filed against him. There can be no impartial investigation until this man heads the GSSSB. We also demand compensation of Rs 50,000 from each of the 88,000 students who took this exam, ”said Yadav, who is an MLA from New Delhi.
On December 20, AAP workers staged a protest in front of the BJP’s Shree Kamalam office over the leaking of the questionnaire prior to the chief secretary’s recruitment exam organized by the Gujarat Subordinate Service Selection Board (GSSSB). BJP and AAP workers clashed at the protest site and the police had to resort to lathicharge charges.
Later, based on a complaint from a BJP activist, the Gandhinagar police arrested 93 AAP workers, including the head of state Gopal Italia, the president of the women’s wing Gauri Desai, the president of the youth wing Nikhil Savani and high-level leaders like Isudan Gadhvi and Hasmukh Patel. Those arrested have been registered under 22 criminal sections of the IPC and other acts, and sent into judicial custody Tuesday night after the court denied them bail.
“Starting today, Mahesh Savani and I will hold an anshan (sit-down, swift protest) in front of the collector’s office in Ahmedabad for our demands,” Yadav added.
When asked about the serious criminal charges against the top AAP leaders in the state, Yadav said: “Our leader Arvind Kejriwal and I have several false cases brought against us in Delhi and other cities. AAP workers are not afraid of going to jail. Our final judges are the 6.5 million rupees from Gujarat. We ask you to see what is happening in Gujarat and how the opposition party Congress has become a silent bystander. “
The state government canceled the chief secretary recruiting test on Tuesday, admitting the document was leaked.
