Bulandshahr: Bhim Military chief Chandra Shekhar was allegedly attacked, late on Sunday night time, when he was returning after addressing a rally in Bulandshahr district.
Azad stated that the convoy he was travelling in, had been fired upon.
“Opposition parties have been terrified of our candidate in Bulandshahr elections and today’s rally worried them, due to which my convoy was fired at in a cowardly manner. This shows their desperation… they want the atmosphere to be toxic but we will not let this happen,” Chandrashekhar Azad tweeted late on Sunday night time.
Azad, who can also be the convener of Azad Samaj Get together, stated his convoy was fired at when members had been campaigning for the upcoming by-election. It’s not clear whether or not he himself was current through the incident because the Bhim Military chief was scheduled to handle a rally within the district.
The incident comes days forward of the November three Bulandshahr by-election.
Bulandshahr Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Santosh Kumar Singh has denied an assault on Chandra Shekhar’s convoy.
The SSP stated there was details about a mutual battle between employees affiliated to the candidates of Azad Samaj Get together and AIMIM.
The police official stated reviews about an assault on Chandra Shekhar’s convoy are but to be confirmed.
The by-polls in Uttar Pradesh for seven seats, together with the Bulandshahr one, mark the political debut of the Bhim Military which has, until now, remained a quasi-political outfit.
Chandra Shekhar has named Haji Yamin as his celebration’s candidate for the Bulandshahr bypoll and his Azad Samaj Get together can also be contesting as many as 30 seats in Bihar below the Progressive Democratic Alliance (PDA) banner, which shall be led by the Jan Adhikar Get together of Rajesh Ranjan a.ok.a. Pappu Yadav.
Chandra Shekhar has been a fierce critic of the Uttar Pradesh authorities over the alleged gang rape and torture of a Dalit lady in Hathras final month, and its monitor document in defending folks from marginalised communities.
