News Correspondent, abptakmaa, Uttar Pradesh, 1st Oct 2020 delegation of Trinamool MPs have been stopped by UP Police from entering Hathras. The delegation had traveled about 200kms from Delhi. The Trinamool MPs were on their way to the village in Hathras, traveling separately, to express solidarity with the grieving family and convey their condolences. The MPs are:
Derek O’Brien, Dr Kakoli Ghosh Dastidar, Pratima Mondal and Mamata Thakur (Ex-MP)
One of the MPs who we’re stopped said, ‘We are peacefully proceeding to Hathras to meet the family and pay our condolences. We are traveling individually and maintaining all protocols. We are not armed. Why are we stopped? What kind of jungle raj is this that elected MPs are prevented from meeting a grieving family. At this moment, we are just 1.5 kms from the victims home in Hathras, explaining to police officials that we will walk the 1.5kms to the victims house in Hathras.
