Bhoa (Pathankot), October 19

Bhoa Congress MLA Joginder Pal's video clip in which he asked people to "hang the Pathankot DC and SSP upside down if they fail to redress their grievances" has shocked residents and officials of the police and civil administration.

Tell your SSP that by virtue of being a ruling party MLA, I am the government. Also tell him I will not allow the village to be used as a dumping ground.- Joginder Pal, MLA, Bhoa

He also threatened to tear the clothes of police officers, including the women constabulary, if they entered Bhoa. A direct fallout of this is that senior officers of Pathankot district have decided not to take his calls "fearing if he can publicly hurl abuses at officers of the rank of DC and SSP, he can insult them too".

Officials are alarmed at the sheer audacity and impudence with which he dared to tear into the officialdom. DC Sanyam Aggarwal and SSP Gulneet Khurana refused to comment on the issue.

"By remaining silent, both officers have maintained their dignity. They do not want to stoop to the abysmally low levels of public discourse to which the legislator slip. They have set certain standards of decency for themselves and follow them assiduously. Things could have gone out of control had they reacted," said a Cabinet Minister, preferring anonymity. Irked at the Pathankot Municipal Corporation's decision to use 300 acres lying vacant in Deriwal as a garbage dump, residents approached the legislator. Joginder Pal visited the site with a group of locals and unleashed his fury at women constables present there. In no uncertain terms, he directed the cops "to go away and never come again, and if they did, he will get their uniforms torn".

"Tell your SSP that by virtue of being a ruling party MLA, I am the government. Also tell him I will not allow the village to be used as a dumping ground," he said. Joginder Pal could not be contacted despite repeated attempts.
