‘Babulal habitually shielding undertrials’ | Ranchi News


Ranchi: Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM) on Wednesday criticized former CM Babulal Marandi and accused him of shielding people who are part of various investigations.
“Since he joined the BJP last year, Babulal-ji has been advocating on behalf of the people who are being subjected to investigations. A few weeks ago, he came out in defence of the people who were arrested for alleged horse trading of Congress MLAs. Today, he defended his press advisor Sunil Tiwari, who has been accused of sexually exploiting a girl,” JMM general secretary Supriyo Bhattacharya said.
Bhattacharya also accused Marandi, the first CM of Jharkhand, of using BJP’s platform to defend Tiwari. “It is a shame that the accused is not even a primary member of the BJP and works for Babulal-ji. And yet, Babulal-ji is using BJP’s platform to defend his personal employees who have engaged in various wrongdoings. The BJP should ponder over it because it is a shameful incident,” Bhattacharya added.
Bhattacharya, however, deflected Marandi’s allegations that Tiwari was implicated by police because he was an intervenor in a case of sexual harassment against incumbent chief minister Hemant Soren. “Being a person of his stature, Babulal-ji should cooperate with police and not side with a person who is accused of a serious crime,” Bhattacharya claimed.
Condemning Marandi’s allegations, Bhattacharya said: “The BJP has lowered the standards of public oratory and made personal attacks against their political opponents. The erstwhile chief minister (Raghubar Das) had gone to new lows and attacked our president (Shibu Soren) and working president (Hemant) in the run up to the elections.”
