What Kerala Former DGP NC Asthana Said About Wrestlers’ Protest And Why Madhya Pradesh IPS Officer Urged Government To Stop His Pension; How Bajrang Punia Responded

Bhopal: A 1986 batch Indian Police Service officer of MP cadre in Madhya Pradesh has denounced a statement by the former DGP of Kerala about wrestlers who have been agitating against outgoing WFI chief Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. IPS Sharma said that the government should stop his pension along with registering a case against him.

Protests have been going on for a long time, with allegations of sexual harassment against Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh. Women wrestlers were marching to the Parliament House, on the day it was being inaugurated by PM Narendra Modi. However, during this time, the police had taken them into custody by using force. Also, the wrestlers protesting at Jantar Mantar were removed.

Describing this action as correct, former DGP of Kerala NC Asthana said that they have been dragged and thrown away like sacks of garbage. “Will even shoot if necessary. Right now, they have just been dragged and thrown away like a sack of garbage. Article 129 gives the police the right to shoot. Under proper circumstances, that wish will also be fulfilled too. But to know that it is necessary to be educated. See you again at the postmortem table!” he reportedly said. 


Senior officer should speak lawful language

Madhya Pradesh IPS officer Purushottam Sharma said that he strongly condemns the statement of the former DGP of Kerala. The government should stop his pension along with registering a case against him. Senior police officers shoud use lawful language. It is wrong to talk about dealing with bullets in the context of peaceful demonstration by national players.


Bajrang Punia said this

However, after this Bajrang Punia had said that this officer was talking about shooting us. “Brother, we’re standing in front (of you), tell us where to come to get shot. I swear that I will not show my back, I will take your bullet on my chest. This is the only thing that has remained to be done with us, so it is also right,” Punia said.

Kumar Vishwas also tweeted

Responding to the tweet of former IPS officer NC Asthana, Kumar Vishwas wrote that Facebook-revolutionaries grew cactuses in their balconies during the farmers movement and abused the farmers. 

“Today, I am saying again that you can agree-disagree with the issue of the movement, but both the parties will have to at least maintain constitutional dignity and sensitivity. Foul language, arrogance and bigotry can give you comfort and desired grace but go against the inclusive idea called India. May God give wisdom and do justice,” said Vishwas.
