BJP MP Parvesh Verma to give one-month salary to families of Delhi Police, IB personnel killed in communal violence

Ghughuti Bulletin

Parvesh Verma, who is accused of making hate speeches, on Saturday said he would give his one-month salary each to the families of the policeman and
Intelligence Bureau employee who were killed in the communal violence in northeast Delhi. At least 42 people were killed and over 200 injured as frenzied mobs torched houses, shops, vehicles, a petrol pump and pelted stones at locals and police personnel earlier this week, the worst riots in Delhi in over three decades.

“I dedicate my salary of one month each as member of Parliament to the families of
Delhi Police head constable Ratan Lal and IB officer
Ankit Sharma, killed while doing their duty, in the unfortunate violence in Delhi,” Verma, who represents West Delhi in the Lok Sabha, tweeted.

Delhi high court had on Wednesday directed the police to take “conscious decision” with respect to lodging of FIRs against alleged hate speeches by three BJP leaders, including Verma, in connection with the violence.

In the assembly election, Verma courted controversy over his “terrorist” statement against chief minister
Arvind Kejriwal, following which he was banned from campaigning by the election commission.
