Delhi BJP leader Vijay Jolly on Wednesday complained to the police against some videos on YouTube which, he said, were “glorifying” the Khalistani movement and its leader Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale.

He also told Delhi Police Commissioner Amulya Patnaik to slap sedition charges on those involved in making and circulating the “pro-Bhindrawale” videos.

The complaint to ban such videos was also made to Union Information and Broadcasting Minister Smriti Irani.

The former Delhi legislator said: “I witnessed on YouTube videos glorifying and promoting Khalistani movement and its leader in modern India. I am shocked at the contents since these shall misguide and incite the youth to join the secessionists against the Republic of India. It is against the basic principles of the Constitution.”

Jolly said these videos are freely and recklessly circulating on YouTube which seems to be “promoting secessionist and anti-national activities”.

Citing the example of a video titled “Murh Aawe Bhindrawala” which has over 1.7 million views, Jolly asked Patnaik and Irani to immediately ban all such “anti-national and seditious” videos.

He also demanded from Patnaik that the “anti-social elements” who are found involved in making and circulating such films on social media should be prosecuted on charges of sedition and criminal conspiracy.

Jarnail Singh Bhindranwale was the leader of a Sikh organisation Damdami Taksal and a notable supporter of the Anandpur Resolution. He was the founder of Khalistan movement, which sought to create a separate country called Khalistan, and was killed in 1984. IANS

The BJP on Monday held Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal responsible for the death of a sanitation worker in a drain saying that the government was playing with their lives as they are not given protective gear.

“This is not the first time that such an incident has happened. Due to the negligence of the government, sanitation staff goes for cleaning sewers and dies there after inhaling toxic fumes. They are never saved even after rescue operations,” Delhi BJP Chief Manoj Tiwari told reporters here.

His remarks come a day after a sanitation worker choked to death after he got trapped inside an underground drain while cleaning it in north Delhi’s Jahroda area.

The work of cleaning the drain was being carried out by the Delhi government’s flood control department.

“Sanitation workers are our helpers and Kejriwal government is playing with their lives,” he said.

Highlighting the deaths of sanitation workers in Delhi in the past few years, the BJP MP from the North East Delhi Lok Sabha constituency said that in September 2018, five sanitation workers died while in August 2017, 10 died inside sewers.

“Kejriwal is responsible for the deaths of sanitation workers who die while cleaning sewers and the investigating agencies should take action against him,” he said.

Attacking Kejriwal, Tiwari said, “During the last three to four years, more than 60 workers have died.”

He also accused Kejriwal of not fulfilling his promise of providing safety equipment to sewer workers and mechanical sweeping.

A senior Delhi Police official said that it has registered a case under relevant sections of the Indian Penal Code over the death of the sanitation worker.

The sanitation worker has been identified as Kishan, 37, a resident of north Delhi’s Wazirabad area.
