State secretary of BJP’s Kisan Morcha, Gori Shankar Shrivas told The Indian Express that he was heading a delegation who met the Secretary of SHRC in Srinagar today, and filed a petition seeking review of the SHRC order. “There is a lot of anger against it among youth throughout the country. How can SHRC order the government to give compensation to this man (who was made a human shield)? Such a step would demoralize the army. We registered our opposition to this move and sought that the SHRC review its order,’’ Shrivas said.
He said two more BJP leaders from Chhattisgarh, Dinesh Tripathy and Ajay Singh Rathore, were accompanying him. “Major sahib (Major Leetul Nitin Gogoi ) who tied this man Farooq to his vehicle did so without caring for his life. We have nothing against Farooq Dar but we say Major sahib wasn’t wrong. Both the army and the central government have said that Major sahib didn’t do anything wrong”.
