Congress plans nine-day protest

Bhopal: The Opposition Congress in Madhya Pradesh will launch nine-day protests across the State from May 12 to expose “corruption at every level in the State Government.”

Announcing this in a press conference on Thursday, MPCC president Suresh Pachouri accused the ruling BJP government of politicising the state machinery for its electoral gains. He said the decision of the Jabalpur Bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court on April 25, dismissing the mining lease allocation proved that Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had “misused” his position to favour a particular party. “Corruption is at its peak. For the first time in the history, an FIR has been filed against the Chief Minister on the directions of Lokayukta in dumper case ”, he said. PTI
