Boisterous protest demonstration by OFBJP at Indian Consulate in Newyork

via Press Release published on September 28, 2010

A strong crowd of approximately 200 members and supporters of Overseas Friends of BJP (“OFBJP”) staged a noisy protest near Indian Consulate in New York to express their  repugnance and aversion against the harassment of Narendra Modi, Chief Minister of Gujarat on September 26.  The protesters came in buses from New Jersey and surrounding areas. 

The demonstrators carried playcards saying “Stop Harassing Narendra Modi”, Stop Misuse of CBI”, “CBI is Congress Bureau of intimidation and investigation” and many others.  Dr. Vijay Laxmi, Vice President of Andhara Pradesh BJP appreciated the spirit and courage of  OFBJP members and congratulated them for caring about their puniya-bhoomi – Bharat.

Addressing the crowd, Dr. Vijay Laxmi deplored the tendency of Indian rulers who have no respect and regard for India ’s glorious culture, history and traditions.  “Congress government is jealous of Narendra Modi’s popularity.  It is using CBI to malign him and tarnish his image in the eyes of public”, proclaimed Dr. Laxmi.

Narain Kataria, one of the organizer/supporter of the protest said:    “It is a matter of great disgrace that UPA Governent headed by Sonia Gandhi is fabricating false charges against Narendra Modi in an insidious attempt to defame and denigrate him, and destroy his credibility. 

Substantiating his argument Kataria said that Rajkot Police Commissioner Geeta Johri in her curative petition in the Supreme Court has alleged that ever since the CBI began its probe in the Sohrabuddin encounter case it had been exercising pressure on  certain Gujarat police officers, including her, to either implicate certain  political personalities in Sohraddin case or stand charged as an accused in the killing of Sohrabuddin.  Kataria further said that O.P. Mathur, who was the Chief of State CID (Crime) at that time has also complained to the Home Ministry that CBI is putting pressure on him to depose against certain police officials.  O.P. Mathur is now apprehensive of his arrest by CBI because he has declined to succumb to pressure. To prove his point further, Kataria said that it is reported in the media that even the key witness in Soharbddin Sheikh case, Azam Khan is also reported to have staged his own shootout!

After the protest was over, a memorandum signed by Dr. Rajesh Shukla, Dr. Sudhakar Reddy, Dr. C. B. Singh, Mohinder Singh Gulati, Narain Kataria and Bhavesh Dave, was submitted to the Indian Consulate.
