BJP leaders stated protesting at Malvani police station of Mumbai just because a police removed the poster for Ayodhya’s Ram mandir donation. A video went viral of the police and just after that the BJP leaders started the protest. A video clip of the police circulated very widely where he was removing the poster for Ram Mandir Nidhi Sankalan Abhiyan. This incident took place on 15 January in Malvani.
After the people saw the video they all were mad at the police and went to the local police station. They all started protesting and said “Jai Shri Ram” slogans. A case of rioting was registered against the group.
This issue was then raised by BJP’s local unit. It said that it is the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation’s (BMC) job to remove posters, and police have acted illegally. On Saturday, North Mumbai BJP MP Gopal Shetty, and leader of Opposition Praveen Dareakar headed a protest near Malvani police station, demanding action against cops who removed the poster.
Shetty said that the Kashmir is not sensitive anymore but the Malvani is. He also added that is the Malvani area becomes sensitive then it would be a great failure of the police. He said that action will be taken against the police who did this. If a poster is illegal, it’s the BMC’s job to remove it, not the police’s.
