Bhopal, Feb 28 (UNI) Senior Congress member Digvijay Singh today slammed the Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led Bharatiya Janata Party government in Madhya Pradesh for framing political rivals in false and frivolous cases and alleged that the BJP regime lacked credibility.
Taking part in the debate on the motion of thanks to Governor Balram Jakhar's address to the Assembly, Mr Singh said that Mr Chouhan had brought politics to its nadir by raking up frivolous issues to malign rivals. He challenged the Chief Minister to muster courage and lodge cases against him.
The Congress General Secretary referred to registration of a case recently against Leader of the Opposition Jamuna Devi and her daughter regarding a caste certificate issued more than four decades back.
''The Chief Minister's credibility was suspected when the state police was given the responsibility of probing the dumper case instead of handing over the case to the Central Bureau of Investigation,'' the former chief minister said, adding that the investigation was placed on the backburner.
Besides, he said, Mr Chouhan attempted to mislead by furnishing a false address while registering the dumpers under the Motor Vehicle Act. ''It is a punishable offence,'' he pointed out, adding that Mr Chouhan seemed frustrated.
Mr Singh said that the BJP government did not repose faith in maintaining transparency and it was evident from the fact that BJP ministers had not yet informed the house about assets possessed by them and their family members.
