Hemant Hatao, Jharkhand Bachawo( Remove Hemant, Save Jharkhand). With this slogan, the opposition party BJP organised a massive rally against the Hemant Soren government in Dhruva, Ranchi on Wednesday.
Hundreds of BJP workers had gathered from far-flung areas of the state in Dhurwa where clashes erupted between them and the police.
This happened especially when some BJP workers attempted to march toward the Project building where the state secretariat is located, as part of their “ gherao programme.”
In response, cops used tear gas, water canons and lathi-charged the protestors to prevent them from marching towards the secretariat, where prohibitory orders under Section 144 of CrPc were in force.
The march to the Jharkhand secretariat as part of BJP's gherao programme was organized to protest "deteriorating law and order, prevailing corruption and high rate of unemployment".
