Photo of policeman carrying BJP MLA on back goes viral in JK

Jammu (PTI): A photo of a BJP MLA climbing on the back of his personal security officer (PSO) to cross a rivulet has gone viral on social media in Jammu and Kashmir.

Justifying his action, the legislator said that the PSO has been employed by the government to help him.


“This is not misuse of the power, the government has employed the PSO to help me, what is wrong if he helped me cross the rivulet,” Krishan Lal told reporters today.

In the picture, the legislator from Chhamb Assembly seat, is seen crossing the rivulet on the back of his PSO.

He said that both of them were helping each other as it was the duty of the PSO to help him cross the rivulet.

“No this is not bonded labour, we were crossing the rivulet when he volunteered to carry me on his back, we are here to help each other, we both are public servants,” he said.

The MLA said that in the past when he served in the area as a doctor for several years, he used to cross the rivulet of his own, but now that he has a PSO after he became an MLA, it was the duty of the PSO to serve the representative of the public.

  1. Dear readers,

    In principle Videsh Sanchar Minister Modi’s government is run from Nagpur instead of Delhi. They hopps the back of Mohan Bhagwat and takes the instructions run like remote control government.This visual is evidence of misuse of power.

    In distant India, ministers carry laptops and wait for their turn to eagerly present their current and future strategies to sundry members of a social organisation whose aim, by its own reckoning, is “to bring to life the all-round glory and greatness of our Hindu Rashtra”. Those who make such presentations include the Union finance, defence and home ministers, among others.

    The presentations and discussions are behind closed doors and there is no way to tell exactly what was discussed. But the fact that the ministers trooped into the RSS headquarters to make their presentations at the allotted time slots tells its own story and lays bare the balance of power.

    Does the entire cabinet trooping across to the headquarters of a cultural organisation to have their performance evaluated not suggest “favour” and “affection”? Or even “fear”? Mind you, these are ministers whom an ordinary citizen like you and me can almost never hope to meet, leave aside ask them for a review of his work. If we are to go by the media, it is a combination of all three. Since the actual discussions happen behind closed doors, the onus must be on ministers to explain what it was if not favour, fear or affection?

    Is the ‘Good governance’ need advice of non-elected members from the social organisation which was banned thrice being presented with state secrecy?

    Jai hind
