SAD-BJP ask EC to shift cops in Gurdaspur ahead of by-election. Shiromani Akali Dal-BJP alliance has urged the Election Commission of India to immediate shift police officers including DSPs and SHOs posted in Gurdaspur Parliamentary constituency who were instrumental in registration of false cases against Akali Dal leaders. A high level delegation of the alliance on Wednesday met the Election Commission of India led by BJP state president and Union Minister of State Vijay Sampla and included MPs Balwinder Singh Bhunder, Prof Prem Singh Chandumajra, Shwet Malik, Naresh Gujral, former state BJP president Ashwani Kumar and SAD secretary and spokesman Dr Daljit Singh Cheema. The delegation apprised the commission of the prevailing circumstances in the constituency and malafide intentions of the ruling Congress to grab this seat with evil designs. It briefed the Commission on how attempts are being made by Congress to harass the leaders of the SAD-BJP alliance by registering false FIRs against them. The delegation brought to the notice of the commission that 27 senior leaders of the SAD have been framed in false cases by name and other 500 workers have been booked as unidentified. These case have been registered with the sole motive and intension that they may detain any person under garb of unidentified persons as referred in the FIRs.The delegation also urged the Commission to summon records of these cases from the DGP to examine the legal genuineness of these FIRs and appealed to the commission to direct the state Home Department not to arrest anybody on the basis of these FIRs till the election process is over. It hoped that the commission will act fast in the matter in the interest of justice, fair play and free election and ensure rule of law and free and fair elections in the ensuing Gurdaspur Parliamentary by-election.
