R-Day violence a conspiracy by BJP govt, says Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury
Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury on Monday alleged that the violence that unfolded in Delhi on Republic Day was a conspiracy by the BJP government. “The most important question is how could the miscreants reach Red Fort on a day like Republic Day? January 26 is a day in which the national capital remains under maximum security. Then, how can such an incident take place? I am sure that this was an incident staged by the government. You sent your people, who came disguised as farmers, and took part in violent activities,” he said.
