While addressing the mammoth gathering at Pakaura Chowk at Tikri Border, Joginder Singh Ugrahan State President BKU (Ekta Ugrahan), said that the Modi Government is indulging in curbing the rightful voices raised by the people throughout the Country by way of organizing the communal movements and imposing the draconian laws. By imposing laws like UAPA and sedition charges against the Intellectuals and the activists of Democratic Rights, they have been huddled into the prisons. These are the people who have used their Pen , Art and the Intellect, for the benefit of the people at large and have always raised their voice against draconian laws and exploitative policies and have openly stood for the rights of the people. He said that the voice of the people is silenced by imposing laws like AFSPA ( Armed Forces Special Powers Act). The massacre in Nagaland recently is the result of the vast draconian powers given to the armed forces by way of such laws. He demanded that the arrested Intellectuals and the activists of Democratic Rights be released forthwith and the draconian laws like UAPA , AFSPA and Sedition Act be repealed immediately.
