Bhaiyon aur Behnon, namaskaar,

Aaj desh ke karodon log gusse aur dukh mein hain. Haathras ki masoom ladki ke Saath Jo haivaniyat kee gayi vo hamaare Samaj par eK kalank hai. Main puchna chahati hun, Kya ladki hona gunah hain ? Kya garib Ki ladki hona apradh hai ? Uttar Pradesh Sarkar kya kar rahi thee ? Hafton tak peedit parivaar ki nyay ki pukaar ko suna nahi gaya. Pure maamle ko dabaane ki Koshish Ki gayi. Peedit ladki KO samay par illaj nahi diya gaya? Aaj ek Beti hamaare beech se chali gayi. Main kehna chahati hun Ki Hathras Ki Nirbhaya ki mrityu nahi hui hai, use maar diya gaya hai. Ek nishthur Sarkar dwara, uske prasashan dwara, Uttar Pradesh Sarkar Ki upeksha dwara. Jab vah Jinda thee uski sunvayi Nahi hui, uski Raksha nahi hui. Mrityu ke bayad use apni Ghar Ki Mitti aur haldi bhi nahi naseeb hone di gayi. Use, uske parivaar ko saumpa nahi gaya . Apni roti bilakhti maa ko bhi akhribaar apni Beti ko bidaa Nahi karne Diya Gaya . Yeh ghor Paap Hai. Jor zabardasti karke ladki Ki lassh jalaa di gayi. Marne ke baad bhi insaan ki ek garima Hoti Hai . Hindu dharam bhi iske baare mein ye kehta Hai magar us bachi ko police Ki taakat ki vajah se jor jabardasti jalaa Diya gaya. Ye kaisaa nyay hai ? Ye kaisee Sarkar Hai ? Aapko lagta hai ki aap kuch bhi kar lenge aur desh dekhta rahega? Bilkul Nahi, desh bolega, AAPKE anyay ke khilaaf. Main Congress party Ki taraf se Hathras ke pidit parivar ke liye nyay Ki maang ke saath khadi hun. Bharat sabka desh hai, yahan sabko ijjat Ki zindagi jeene ka adhikaar hai . Sanvidhaan ne hameh ye adhikaar diya hai. Hum Bhajapa ko desh aur samvidhaan ko nahi todne denge, Jai Hind.

Brother’s n sisters,


Today crores of countrymen are in a state of shock and anger. The animalism committed with the innocent girl of Hathras is a blot on our society. I want to ask, is being a girl a guilt ? Is being a daughter of the poor a crime? What was the Uttar Pradesh government doing? The call of the victimsed girl seeking justice was not heard till weeks. There had been an attempt to hide the entire crime. The victim girl was not given treatment in time. Today a daughter has gone away from our midst. I want to say that the Hathras girl has not died but was murdered by a ruthless government, its administration, due to the negligence of Uttar Pradesh’s government. When she was alive, she wasn’t heard, wasn’t protected. After her death she was not even allowed to apply HALDI n Mitti ( mud) of her house. This is a deep sin. The corpse of the girl was burnt by force n pressure. Even after a human death he or she has a dignity. Hindu religion also says so but she was burnt under duress, pressure n force. What type of justice is this ? What type of government is this ? You think you can do whatever you think and the nation will tolerate it. Not at all, the country will speak out against you. I on behalf of Congress party is standing rock solid with the victimsed family to demand due justice. India is the country of each n everyone where everyone has the right to live with dignity. Our constitution has provided us this right. We will not let the BJP break this country and the constitution. JAI HIND.
