Bhopal, Oct 8 (UNI) Madhya Pradesh Food and Civil Supplies Minister Akhand Pratap Singh today walked out from the cabinet meeting expressing his disagreement over some issues.

Sources close to the minister said Mr Singh had demanded action against alleged corruption by some officials. Besides, he had objected to allotment of land to a voluntary organisation.

He left the meeting when his remarks were not given due importance.

When Public Works Department Minister Kailash Vijaywargiya was asked about the matter while he was briefing reporters about cabinet meeting, he said Mr Singh had expressed disagreement over some issues. Later, he whispered something in Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's ear and left the meeting.

Refusing to comment further on the issue, Mr Vijaywargiya said only the Chief Minister or Mr Singh could tell about what the latter whispered in his ear.

Mr Singh had yesterday urged the Lokayukt to start inquiry into complaints levelled against him by Congress spokesperson K K Mishra so that the matter could be resolved at the earliest.

He had suspected involvement of the then department secretary K P Singh and other officials in the alleged wheat production scam and felt Lokayukt inquiry would make everything clear.

Mr Singh, who had been in the Congress earlier, has been in news since the past few months related to his differences with some senior party leaders.
