Letter links Shrikant Tyagi to BJP, had police cover for over a year

BJP leaders deny any link with Shrikant Tyagi, booked by Noida police last Friday after he was caught on video pushing and abusing a woman at the Grand Omaxe residential society in Noida’s Sector 93-B, but a 2018 letter confirms Tyagi’s affiliation to the party.
A BJP leader, whose tenure coincided with Tyagi’s, confirmed to The Indian Express that the letter was genuine and that Tyagi was part of the team from August 2018 to April 2021.
“This wing was created as a need was felt for participation from more youths in the kisan morcha. Several appointments were made at the time,” he said.
Along with Tyagi, 20 other appointments were made to posts such as media advisor, social media advisor and secretary. “Not just him (Tyagi), several others were accommodated in the new wing,” the BJP leader said.
Eventually, when a new team was formed, Tyagi failed to find a fresh position in the morcha, the leader said.
