The Tyagi community is gearing up for an agitation against the BJP. After being released from prison, BJP leader Shrikant Tyagi held a meeting with members of the Tyagi community in Muzaffarnagar on Monday night and said the community plans to hold a meeting of the Tyagi-Brahmin communities soon.
Shrikant Tyagi was tried under the Gangsters Act and relevant IPC sections after assaulting and pushing a female resident of his society in Noida a few months ago after arguing over illegal violations.
He said members of Tyagi society, who are also BJP workers, feel insecure. “We are going to make a big decision in the coming days, which will be announced shortly after a massive rally in the NCR.”
Shrikant Tyagi has visited villages with a significant Tyagi population in this regard.
“Shrikant Tyagi has been unjustly attacked. We intend to confront the BJP and we will choose a member who belongs to our community,” said Mangram Tyagi, a prominent community leader.
Speaking to the meeting of the Tyagi Samaj, Shrikant said, “I accept that it is wrong to associate with any woman, but is it wrong to protect your honor? That was the reaction to the action. I was just protecting my honor, that was my only mistake and for that I was booked under the Gangster Act and many more sections.”
He also accused some of the BJP leaders who had plotted and planned against him for political reasons.
