Dr Ved Pratap Vaidik, who has triggered volcanic anger across the country by meeting the mastermind behind 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks Hafiz Saeed in Pakistan, received garlands of chappals and shoes in Nagpur as a protest erupted against the treacherous act on Tuesday. Activists of Nagpur Loksabha Yuvak Congress, led by its President Bunty Shelke, termed Vaidik a traitor and strongly protested his rendezvous with the wanted terrorist by hitting and garlanding Vaidik’s portrait with chappals and shoes.
“Dr Vaidik is connected with Vivekanand Foundation which had been active field of Prime Minister’s Principal Secretary Nripendra Mishra, National Security Adviser Ajit Dobhal and P K Mishra. This fact clearly shows that Vaidik’s visit to Pakistan and his meeting with chief of terrorist group was sponsored by PMO. Therefore, the activists of Nagpur Loksabha Yuvak Congress, led by its President Bunty Shelke, hit the streets near ST Bus Stand in Ganeshpeth and garlanded the portrait of Dr Vaidik with chappals and shoes and also raised slogans like ‘Dr Vaidik Murdabad,’Prime Minister Narendra Modi Murdabad,’ BJP Government Murdabad,’ said the leaders.
Shelke and other activists have demanded strict action against Dr Vaidik and also resignation by Prime Minister Modi on moral grounds.
