Lucknow, May 5 (IANS) A case was registered against BJP’s Lok Sabha member Sachidanand Hari Sakshi, better known as Sakshi Maharaj, in Uttar Pradesh on Thursday on charges of trying to incite party workers and intimidating police, an official said.
The MP from Unnao had, in a speech two days ago at a party worker’s house in Fardpur village in Mainpuri, allegedly said that if Bharatiya Janata Party workers were harassed, police will have to face bullets.
The case against the BJP leader was filed at Bicchwa police station in Mainpuri district.
Sakshi Maharaj told IANS that he was being “framed as police wanted me to get off the trail of barbarism” that they had unleashed on BJP workers.
“On April 30 night, a dozen policemen barged into BJP worker Maidan Singh’s house and beat up all male and female family members and even sexually assaulted the girls and women,” the lawmaker alleged.
He said he received pictures of the incident on WhatsApp, which he showed to Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav, who he said termed it “rape”.
“I told Mulayam Singh that I am going to Mainpuri to see for myself what has been done. The SP chief not only endorsed it but also sought a report on my return,” the BJP MP said.
Sakshi Maharaj said he has since sent his report with “due evidence” to Mulayam Singh Yadav.
The MP said he will approach the National Human Rights Commission, National Commission for Women, union Home Minister Rajnath Singh and Chief Minister Akhilesh Yadav on the matter and, if need be, even Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
“I am not to be cowed down by first information reports like these. I will take the matter to its logical conclusion, whatever it may take,” the BJP leader said.
