Chronicle Reporter, Bhopal, Congress organized demo against BJP for spoiling the communal harmony in the state. The party activists were led by state Congress Committee treasurer Govind Goel.
The administration put pressure on them not to hold the demo but the Congressmen were undeterred. The party activists also had a scuffle with cops. Large numbers of party men were present during the demo.
Goel said Mahatma Gandhi united Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Christians and fought for the country’s freedom. Pt Jawaharlal Nehru laid the foundation of nation’s progress.
He said it is a matter of surprise that efforts are being made to create rift between Hindus and Sindhis, who believe in Lord Ram and Shiva. When Pakistan was formed, the Sindhis in Pakistan left their native place and migrated to India. Pt. Nehru developed many areas in the country to rehabilitate them like Kalyan, Bairagarh, Sindhi Camp, Jaipur etc.
