Can the police be empowered to search and arrest at homes and establishments without a warrant?An "Armed Police Bill", which allows police to search and arrest without a warrant was presented in the Bihar Legislative Assembly. Opposition MLAs who opposed and condemned this Police Bill were attacked by security officials.
The JDU-BJP Government is trying to silence the people's representatives and subvert the constitutional values. Opposition parties, including the Congress, the Aam Aadmi Party, the RJD, the DMK, the TRS, and the Samajwadi Party, have condemned such a move by the state government.
The Armed Police Bill is unconstitutional. The bill empowers the police to crack down on those who speak out against the government.
When the opposition parties made protests yesterday, the government called the police to face it. Some MLAs were dragged away by the police.
Has our democracy deteriorated to the point where even the MLAs are being dragged away by the police to establish ruling class supremacy? Is this acceptable?
