Cong leaders being framed in MP, says Oppn
Bhopal, Mar 1 (UNI) Mounting a severe attack on the style of functioning of the Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led BJP government in Madhya Pradesh, the opposition Congress today alleged that Congress leaders, including legislators, were being framed in false cases with the BJP government unleashing vendetta on political opponents.
Participating in the debate on the budgetary demands of General Administration, Police, Home, Aviation, Science and Technology and Narmada Valley Development departments held by the Chief Minister, Congress legislator Dr Govind Singh told the assembly that the BJP government had backtracked on its promise to provide ''non-discriminatory, corruption-free and clean government''.
Dr Singh also questioned the slew of announcements for new projects in Budhni Assembly segment in Sehore district, from where Mr Chouhan was likely to seek entry into the Vidhan Sabha. ''Why this partiality?'', he questioned.
The Congress legislator also arraigned the government for the ''deteriorating law and order situation and increasing crime graph''.
Atrocities on women and Dalits had reached new heights and minority Christians were being targeted in attack by Bajrang Dal activists at Bhopal, Indore, Jhabua and other places, he said, adding the Dal activists were unleashing terror and even the police officials were being attacked to demoralise them, he said.
On the other hand, BJP member Lal Singh Arya claimed the crime graph was going down since the Chouhan government was going tough against criminals and dacoits. No riots took place during the BJP rule and the police force was being provided vehicles and other equipments, he added.
Speaker Ishwardas Rohani expunged certain remarks made by both ruling BJP and opposition members on alleged political protection to criminals.
