Bhopal, Oct 31: Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh Assembly Jamuna Devi has demanded a high-level inquiry into BJP disciplinary committee President Kailash Sarang and Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha President Vishwas Sarang becoming tendupatta (bidi leaves) collector in a fake manner.

In a letter to the Chief Secretary, Ms Devi has demanded cancelling the fake membership of both leaders in Primary Forest Produce Cooperative Committee, Muriakheda village, and registering of case against them.

She also demanded cancelling the order appointing Mr Vishwas Sarang as the President of the State Minor Forest Produce Federation on the basis of fake membership.

Ms Devi alleged that the leaders were infringing upon the rights of tendupatta pluckers, especially tribals, by becoming fake member of the Primary Forest Produce Cooperative Committee, Muriakheda village.

For becoming member of the committee, a person should be either residing in the working area of the committee or earning livelihood by collecting minor forest produce.

However, the two leaders did not fulfill the criteria, she added.
