Hand pump removed under pressure from ruling party: Saini
Under the pressure of the ruling party, the administration snatched the arrangement of drinking water from the people by uprooting the hand pump. If they are registering their protest in a peaceful manner, they are being stopped. If this is not murder of democracy then what is? The people of the ruling party gather and enter the tehsil and police station and commit hooliganism, but the police administration did not take any action against them and they are also being prevented from holding a peaceful dharna. He will not sit silent against the injustice being done to the poor people. – Naresh Saini, MLA
