We don't resort to barbaric acts: Gujjars
Onkar Singh in New Delhi | June 11, 2007 10:16 IST
Gujjar leader Roop Singh has accused Rajasthan Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje of playing a double game with them by resorting to indiscriminate arrest of the workers who took part in the week long agitation and spreading all sorts of falsehood to malign the Gujjars.
Speaking to rediff.com on phone from Jaipur, the Gujar Sangharsh Samiti spokesman denied that any of the agitationists had beheaded a police man after taking his eyes out by sword.
He charged that the police opened fire on peaceful Gujjars and killed them.
He regretted that so far no judicial probe has been announced by the chief minister.
"The administration is going back on its promises. While our workers are being arrested and cases are being registered against leaders like Col Bainsla, no case has been made out against the cabinet ministers of the other community who were instigating action against our men. Why these double standards," he asked.
Singh promised full cooperation from his community for next 90 days so that three-member commission could complete its findings.
