BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh Opposes UP Government's 'Bulldozer Policy'

BJP MP Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, who is currently facing sexual harassment charges, has openly opposed the Uttar Pradesh government's controversial 'bulldozer policy' while campaigning for his son in the Kaiserganj Lok Sabha polls in Gonda district. Singh's stance comes amidst his ongoing legal battle and being dropped by the BJP.

Why this matters: The controversy surrounding Singh's opposition to the 'bulldozer policy' highlights the complexities of Indian politics, where politicians facing serious allegations can still wield significant influence. This development also raises questions about the accountability of elected representatives and the impact of their actions on the democratic process.

On May 10, Delhi's Rouse Avenue court framed charges against Singh and his secretary, Vinod Tomar, for the alleged sexual exploitation of women wrestlers. The Delhi Police had filed a charge sheet against Singh on June 15, 2023, under sections 354, 354-A, 354-D, and 506 (criminal intimidation) of the Indian Penal Code.

Singh welcomed the court's decision, stating, "Prima facie today the court has framed the charge... I am in favor of the court. I welcome the decision. Now the way has been opened for me..." Despite the charges and being dropped by the BJP, Singh continues to campaign for his son in the Kaiserganj Lok Sabha polls.

The BJP MP's opposition to the UP government's 'bulldozer policy' has raised eyebrows, as the policy has been a controversial topic in the state. The policy involves the demolition of properties allegedly belonging to criminals and those accused of illegal activities.

Singh's legal battle and his stance against the 'bulldozer policy' have added an interesting dimension to the Kaiserganj Lok Sabha polls. As the campaign progresses, it remains to be seen how voters will respond to Singh's position and the impact it may have on the election outcome.
