Mumbai, (The Hindu): The Mumbai Regional Congress Committee (MRCC) held a silent march from its regional office in south Mumbai to Azad Maidan on Wednesday afternoon demanding an independent inquiry into Judge B. H. Loya’s death case.
The march, which was led by MRCC president Sanjay Nirupam, was followed by a public meeting at Azad Maidan. Addressing party workers Mr. Nirupam said, “I know that the BJP will try to accuse us of politicising the issue, especially after this march. But we will not step back. It is our duty to address the problems in our society and I will do that.
Mr. Nirupam said, “The burning question is who killed Judge Loya? I am not saying that the BJP members or leaders killed him, but I am asking why is there no independent inquiry. A judge dies and nobody really cares about it.”
He said, “With the four Supreme Court judges coming out and saying that the legal system is endangered, it further proves it that this democracy is turning into a dictatorship.”
Referring to a rift between the four judges of the Supreme Court and Chief Justice Dipak Misra, Mr. Nirupam said that everyone needs to come together to save democracy.
He said, “For the first time, four senior judges of the Supreme Court addressed a press conference saying all is not well in the judicial system. Even VHP leader Pravin Togadia fears that he would be killed in an encounter. Nobody is safe under the BJP rule.”
