Exactly a month ago, #tejasviSurya said that he is not going to apologise for his communal remarks.

The same day, BBMP said all 17 men who were removed were reinstated.

A month later, most of the men are still jobless & under paid. Here is there story

Salim is one person who got is job back but not at the same war room so he has to travel far.

To pay for his travel he works 2 jobs.

He works from 10am to 4pm at the war room and from 6pm to 11pm delivering food with Swiggy. This means he works 13 hours a day, 7 days a week.
For the men, this one incident has entirely questioned their sense of safety.

"Things have changed in Bengaluru. It does not feel safe for me anymore. I have come home for some time...I need some time before I can think of my future again. I don’t feel safe anywhere anymore"
The men that we spoke to said that apart from losing their jobs, the men have also not recived their salary in full.

In fact, they said they had not even been given an appointment letter by Crystal Infosystem, the agency that hired them.
A screenshot shared with Newslaundry shows that it's not the just the men who have not recieved their proper salaries.

The Covid war room whatsapp group shows multiple staffers enquiring and pleading to be paid.

Crystal Infosystem refused to comment.

THREAD: I'm so deeply angry & helpless. We just got completely scammed.

Yesterday I put this out. Few kind people sent contacts. We paid Rs.25,000 for #oxygencylinders to Sachin (7047260324). It's been more than 10 hours, we have no cylinder & the money is gone!

First he asked for 12.7k for 1 cylinder. Then he said we have to take 2 cylinders & the payment must be made immediately via Gpay. So we paid another 12.7k. Then he called back to ask for another 6k saying GST.
At this point, I pleaded with him & said we will pay whatever he wants in person. When I refused to pay the GST amount online because I got suspicious, he said cylinders are over & no more delivery. I called him all night, his phone was switched off.

Hours after Batra hospital lost 8 patients to #OxygenShortage, they were again panicking as they had only 2 hours oxygen supply left.

@DikshaMunjal6 & I spoke to multiple hospitals in Delhi. In every single doctor's voice we heard sheer helplessness.

"It is probably going to give us a heart attack. It seems so unfair that we are doing whatever we can for these patients, accommodating as many as we can but because of factors not in our control, we are not able to save their lives,” said a doctor at @SehgalNeo hospital.
“It’s difficult to explain what a crisis this is. If oxygen reduces to a certain point, pressure in the walls of pipelines will go down. This means there will be a sudden depletion of oxygen pressure in the ward and the patients will start getting desaturated" -Moolchand hospital

Remember this photo?

In this photo Ranjit Singh's face is being stamped on by Delhi Police at #Singhuborder. It's 27 days since his arrest for attempt to murder & rioting.

All that happened was clearly caught on camera. Yet Delhi Police has a very different story to tell.
Video evidence clearly shows how Delhi Police stood back while a mob attacked farmers at #Singhuborder.

When Ranjit Singh stepped out in self defense, police began dragging and beating him up, his turban and pants came off

SHO of Alipur was injured. Ranjit Singh was bleeding
The FIR lodged by Delhi Police reads: “Suddenly, a Sikh took out his sword and started running towards the locals with the intention to kill”

No where is it mentioned that the police were beating Ranjit Singh.

🧵This is the #Hathrascasevictim’s 3 yr old niece. She covers her face with a make believe veil & says “Bua Bua" (Aunt, aunt).

“She thinks every young woman who comes home is her aunt” -said the victim’s brother.

4 months after her gangrape & murder. How is the family coping?
The family has sold 4-5 of their buffalos & given away half their land. Both her brothers no longer go to work as they have to attend court hearings.

“Life has changed so suddenly for all of us. We try to pass our time counting the days to the next court hearing” - father
Instead of UP Police personnel, now the CRPF stands guard outside their house.

“We had no faith in the UP police. Half the time, we were scared of them. They spoke to us very rudely and let anyone inside the house.”

THREAD: Monu Vishnoi, Bajrang Dal leader in Moradabad, dragged Muskan & Rashid to the police station & made sure they were booked under UP’s new #LoveJihadLaw. When we met him, he gave @AnnaPriyadarsh3 & me insight into how Bajrang Dal in Moradabad works & some free life advise.
It may be a first time in law, but not in practise.

Monu & his ‘volunteers’ have been meddling with interfaith relationships for long. He said, Hindu girls are "brainwashed” by Muslim men & the Bajrang Dal is merely doing a “service” to the Hindu society by “saving” such women.
In Moradabad there are 200-300 Bajrang Dal workers. When asked how they get all their information, Monu said- “We have our own secret intelligence service who never reveal their identities. They're everywhere here but you'll never know them". These workers are called karyakartas.
