Kathua: The sea of people which converged to pay homage to an eight year old Rasana horrible incident victim and seeking CBI inquiry into her alleged rape and murder is enough to ring alarm bells in the air conditioned rooms of those who are in power. They need to understand that message which is loud and clear.
Facing the scorching heat,thousands of people walked on foot along with Choudhary Lal Singh right from Lakhanpur to Londi Morh, Hiranagar. With dtermination, the old and young all stands a toll with Singh and covered distance of 36 kilometers to convey a message to those in power that no more discrimination could be tolerated with Jammu region and cannot take the people of duggar region for granted.
Adressing the large gathering of Dogra Swabhiman rally, Lal Singh said “If they will still remain silent, people are not going to forgive them. We are being told that the case is being monitored by Supreme Court (SC) and hence, a probe cannot be ordered. We must tell those who are in power that they should stop befooling people. The Honourable Court has not restrained the state government from recommending a CBI probe in this case. People are keeping a close watch on what is happening in the court and hence, no one should remain under any illusion that they can further befool people ”
He further said that those who are trying to connect this Dogra Swabhiman Rally with several other issues should take a look at my political career. “I have always stood for my people. I resigned and immediately start mass contact programme to find out what my people were saying. They had no demand but they only wanted me to take up the cause of getting Justice for the 8 year old Goddess who has united entire Jammu region” said Lal Singh.
They tried to divide us along religious, caste and colour lines but we have failed all their efforts today by taking out a peaceful rally and converging at a place closer to the home of that 8 year old Goddess. We reiterate demand for CBI probe,” said Choudhary Lal Singh.
“Those who would often say that Jammu is a leaderless region should today stop making these absurd statements. Sea of people that had gathered for Dogra Swabhiman Rally have sent a clear message that they only want CBI probe and nothing else. We respect Supreme Court of India more than those who pelt stones on the same police officers behind whom they are standing right now but we are pleading with our state government to recommend CBI probe,” Choudhary Lal Singh.
He also said that the people of Jammu region who voted for empowerment and progress are today feeling let-down by us all. We owe an explanation to them. They won’t spare us all. I fear we may be face social boycott if we continue being voice of Kashmir in Jammu. We cannot continue being sacrificial lambs. We too have aspirations and they are highly secular in nature. Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs living in Jammu region are all Dogras and they all want Justice for this 8 year old Goddess.
I need no certificate of secularism from those who have got expertise in dividing people along caste, colour and religious lines, said Choudhary Lal Singh. He thanked people of Jammu region for their unwavering support in getting justice for the 8 year old Jammu girl. “I am thankful to all of you for having taken out time out of you busy schedules to attend this Dogra Swabhiman Rally. Half the battle has been won. If we stay united, success would be ours. Next course of action would be shared with the people in the days to come,” Choudhary Lal Singh said.
