Mahipal Maderna
Jaipur, Dec 4: The Rajasthan Congress on Sunday said the arrest of jat leader Mahipal Maderna should not be linked with caste issue.

"There is no one in the party who is biased against any caste," Rajasthan Congress chief Chandrabhan told reporters here in reply to a question.

"Maderna was sacked from the ministry to ensure that investigations into the matter is not affected due to his ministerial position," he said. Maderna was arrested by the CBI on Friday night in Jodhpur in connection with Bhanwari Devi abduction case. Maderna, who represents Osian Assembly constituency, was sacked from the Cabinet on October 16 by Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot after his name cropped up in abduction of health worker Bhanwari Devi.
