👉'सरकार प्रदर्शनकारी किसानों से ऐसे निपट रहे हैं मानो वे भारत के संकटग्रस्त नागरिकों का समूह ना होकर सरकार के राजनीतिक प्रतिद्वंदी हैं !

👉'सरकार का यह रवैया किसानों को अपने अस्तित्व की रक्षा की खातिर अपना विरोध प्रदर्शन तेज करने के लिए मजबूर कर रहा है।'

👉'सरकार तथाकथित किसान नेताओं और ऐसे कागजी संगठनों के साथ समानांतर वार्ता आयोजित कर आंदोलन को तोड़ने का निरंतर प्रयास कर रही जिनका चल रहे आंदोलन से कोई संबंध नहीं है'

👉'सच यह है कि किसानों ने साफगोई से वार्ता की, पर सरकार ने इस वार्ता में तिकड़म और चालाकी का सहारा लिया है'

#Thread on the lies of UP Police & Delhi Police to cover up Hathras rape case.

At 10:50 pm, Delhi Police told me that family was not on dharna. It turned out to be a lie. Victim's brother confirmed the family was on dharna. 👇

At ~2:25 am, UP Police told me cremation would be done at a time & place of family's choosing. It was a lie. At 2:30 am, she was cremated against family's wishes. The poor family has confirmed this morning that it was done against their wish 👇

It's clear that family protested. Hathras victim's father & mother were NOT allowed to be present while their daughter was cremated. They wanted to take her home. Top UP officials & cops denied them this on DIRECTIONS FROM THE TOP. In a democracy, this calls for a resignation 👇

#Thread on @UmarKhalid

Which sanitizer was used to kill the hate virus in these speeches/rallies?

These are some which I attended apart from covering Delhi riots on ground when Godi media was busy covering Trump.

These are the ones they want everyone to forget. Compare 👇
As I always do, I had covered this final rally of #DelhiElections walking KMs on foot.

Hence, witnessed the most disgusting language karyekartas used for anti CAA protesters in front of the policemen.

Here's a glimpse of that on my youtube channel👇

This was the first detailed report on Shaheen Bagh.

Watch this & compare it with hate speeches.

This tweet is not for the semi-literate gang but those who still have sense left. After anti CAA protesters & JEE-NEET aspirants, it could be YOUR turn 👇
