Oppn Congress fails to corner MP govt over minor's murder

Bhopal, March 8: The main Opposition Congress failed to corner the BJP government in the Madhya Pradesh assembly over the Shivpuri vilence following the abduction and killing of a 11-year-old boy a few days ago.

Two days after the Opposition raised the issue during the Zero Hour seeking an address on the issue, the Speaker accepted it through a notification of call attention. On Thursday, it was seen that only the supporters of Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia actively took up the issue. But their main concern, it seemed, was the vandalism of a statue of late Madhavrao Scindia in Shivpuri town during the violence.

But as far as the kidnapping and murder is concerned, the Opposition could not substantiate any attack against the ruling party. The boy was murdered before the police could initiate any probe and it was latter known that even the phone number from which the ransom call was made was even leaked in newspapers. Yet, the administration could not crack the case on time.

Even after the murder, the police and the administration seemed not have failed to come to tune with the seriousness of the case.

Scindia loyalist Ramnivas Rawat raised the call attention notice while another follower Mahendra singh Kalukheda raised supplementary questions. But the state home minister replied all questions and even refused to suspend police and administrative officers on charges of inefficiency. The home minister said action could not be taken without carrying out a proper probe.

Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh later decided a walkout.
