Chandigarh, July 27
The city AAP today criticised Mayor Ravi Kant Sharma and sought his resignation over the inconvenience caused to public due to barricading of roads in the areas where he comes for inaugurations.
The UT police have started barricading the areas after the vehicles of the Mayor and senior BJP leader Sanjay Tandon were attacked during a farmers protest in Sector 48.
“If the BJP can’t govern Chandigarh without targeting the common man, they should resign. How can the police lock people in their own homes? Who will be responsible if there is a medical emergency? Why should residents have to show IDs to enter their own homes?” commented AAP leader Chander Mukhi Sharma.
“The AAP condemns the brazen and shameful actions of the BJP inconveniencing the common man of Chandigarh wherever the Mayor holds any event. This practice must be reviewed,” said Chander Mukhi.
“It is ironic that on one hand the BJP is inaugurating civil works supposedly for the benefit of the common man, while on the other they are curtailing the same civil society’s constitutionally guaranteed freedom of movement,” he said.
