The issue of naked demonstration of SC-ST youth echoed in the House, opposition members shouted slogans to release the youth

Raipur. The issue of naked performance of SC-ST youth echoed in the assembly. The opposition demanded discussion by presenting an adjournment motion during the zero hour. When the adjournment motion of Asandi was inadmissible, the opposition members descended into the sanctum sanctorum demanding the release of the youth and started shouting slogans. On this, Asandi suspended the opposition members from the proceedings of the House.

Leader of Opposition Narayan Chandel asked in the House that what was the situation that the youth had to perform naked. The youth had given an ultimatum to the government. Even after this their demands were ignored. We demand the resignation of the government. A high level inquiry should be conducted in this matter.

Home Minister Tamradhwaj Sahu said that the information about the naked demonstration was not given to the government in advance. Naked demonstrations were held against those employed with fake certificates. When stopped by the police, there was a scuffle. The police personnel suffered injuries. The arrest was made on this basis. The case is being discussed.

Former Chief Minister Dr. Raman Singh said that this is a very sensitive matter. It should be seen rising above politics. The person of Chhattisgarh is simple, shy. SC-ST youths are suffering for their rights. In this matter, a high power committee under the chairmanship of the Chief Secretary should be formed and an inquiry should be conducted and action should be taken against the responsible officers.

BJP MLA Brijmohan Agarwal said that the government is cursed. This government forced the youth to go naked. We all are ashamed of the incident. Demonstrating naked, the youth reached near the assembly. The naked demonstration by the SC-ST youth regarding their demands is the culmination. No action has been taken against anyone in this matter so far.

Ajay Chandrakar said that this happened for the first time in the country that SC-ST youths performed naked in front of the government. The government knew that there is resentment among the youth. BSP MLA Keshav Chandra said that if a monk comes naked, he is worshipped. But when the youth of a section protest for their rights, then on the contrary they are put in jail.

BJP MLA Shivratan Sharma said that an incident shameful to the country happened. ST-ST youths performed naked in front of the ministers’ convoy. Such an incident did not happen in the country. Minister Shiv Dahria said that it was the BJP government that made appointments with fake caste certificates. These appointments were made during the BJP government.

Congress MLAs Sangeeta Sinha and Kuldeep Juneja said that naked demonstrations cannot be justified. Performing naked is an insult to women. Performance cannot be like this. Dharamjeet Singh said that a high power committee should be formed and the matter should be investigated. Dharamlal Kaushik said that strict action should be taken against those who are doing jobs through fake certificates, but here action is being taken against the youth.
