Bhopal, Mar 4 (UNI) Raising in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly today the case of two traders abducted in Bhind district headquarters yesterday, main opposition Congress members alleged deterioration in the state's law and order situation.
Raising the matter during zero hour, former minister of state for home Govind Singh (Cong) said, ''traders are unsafe in Bhind. Even the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party's MLA staged a sit-in against yesterday's abduction. Police are yet to rescue them.'' Mr Satyadev Katare (Cong) urged the government to take proper steps.
Referring to the burning alive of a dalit minor -- who was doused with kerosene and set alight in Jabalpur district's Sihora on Sunday for protesting eve-teasing -- Mr Sajjan Singh Verma (Cong) placed a question mark on the law and order situation besides demanding strict action against the accused.
Mr Verma, Mr Arif Akil (both Cong) and Dr Sunilam (Samajwadi Party) were observed waving a magazine and making some comments over the Freedom of Expression but their words were drowned as several members spoke at once. Meanwhile, Deputy Speaker Hazarilal Raghuvanshi assured that a related discussion would take place.
