Pathankot, September 14

State BJP chief Ashwani Sharma and four of his party colleagues were booked under the relevant sections of the IPC and the Epidemic Diseases Act, 1897, after it surfaced that they had flouted the social distancing norm at a meeting held on Sunday.

Others who have been booked include Vicky Ram, Sudesh Sharma, Sanjay Sharma and Sunil Kumar, all local satraps.

The BJP leadership was quick to blame the police, and claimed that the latter was acting under the influence of Congress leaders. In response to this, Congress released pictures on social media showing Cabinet Minister Aruna Chaudhury adhering to the rules in a meeting held last week.

The FIR mentions that the accused are “absconding”, while the fact is that they are at their respective residences.

SSP Gulneet Khurana said: “Ours is a professional force, and we never succumb to any pressure.”

Former district Congress Committee president Sanjeev Bains said: “The BJP leaders are now trying to create a controversy where none exists. The Congress always adheres to the norms whenever it holds any gathering. It’s a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black.”— TNS
