Singer turned politician Hans Raj Hans on Monday disrupted Punjab Congress chief Capt. Amarinder Singh’s rally for nearly 30 minutes alleging discrimination towards the Dalits.
An upset Hans Raj, jumped to the stage after Congress Legislature Party (CLP) leader Charanjit Singh Channi who was also present at the event mentioned that not only was the CLP leader nominated from the Dalit community one of the three Rajya Sabha (RS) members from the state was also elected from the SC community.
While at the dais, Hans Raj said that he was “denied” the Rajya Sabha seat as the leaders of the community had opposed to his nomination.
Following this Hans Raj’s supporters assembled in front of the stage and started raising slogans of “Valmiki Samaj Amar Rahe”. Hans, who was on the dais jumped off it to join his supporters.
A visibly upset Hans came back to his seat after about 10 minutes as the entire episode played out in the presence of senior Congress leaders, including Amarinder, AICC Punjab in-charge Asha Kumari, and AICC secretary in-charge Harish Chaudhary.
