Ranchi: Violent protesters created panic for a few hours on Monday evening at Ranchi’s Kishoreganj Chowk when they attacked the Road Opening Party (ROP) of Chief Minister Hemant Soren. The demonstrators, who were protesting against an incident of rape, even blocked the road that CM Soren’s cavalcade was to cross to reach the Chief Minister’s residence in the state capital.

Later, policemen diverted CM Soren’s route to avoid any major untoward incident.

Several policemen were  injured including a traffic inspector who suffered  serious injuries and had  to be admitted to Medanta Hospital. The protestors also damaged several vehicles.

After the incident, several videos related to the incident circulated. In one video, a young man leading a group of people, reasoned for stopping the CM cavalcade that they want to ask the CM till when women of the state will face atrocities? In another one, a man who was recording the incident of the stoppage of CM cavalcade was stopped by protesters to record.

“This incident is not a common one, and it is a direct attempt to take law and order in their own hand. A police officer has been injured and had to be hospitalised. It is a well-planned conspiracy to incite communal violence. It is a conspiracy against the government and the people’s mandate that this government has earned,” JMM’s General Secretary (central committee) and spokesperson Supriyo Bhattacharya told newsmen after the incident.

He also warned, “One has every right to protest democratically and the law permits it, but this was done to push society and the entire state toward a dangerous direction. Those who premeditated and executed such a dangerous plan should now get ready to face the consequences.”

The Hemant Soren led government recently completed its first year in office. In 2019, JMM, Congress and RJD alliance defeated BJP led NDA and ousted Raghubar Das from power.
