MP minister appeals not to politicise incident in Indore

Indore: Madhya Pradesh Industries Minister Kailash Vijaywargia said here on Wednesday that the violence in Chandan Nagar in the city should not be "politicised", but at the same time he also suggested that Congress workers could be involved in the incident.

"Such incidents hamper the development, and no politics should be played," he said while talking to reporters here.

But in reply to a question, he said, without naming anyone, that a Congress leader had said a few days back that "there would be riots in the state".

Meanwhile, state minister for Public Health Mahendra Hardia visited the MY Hospital here where those injured in yesterday's violence are admitted.

About 100 people have been arrested by the police in connection with the incident.

The clash between two groups started after a cow's carcass was found, Superintendent of Police Anil Singh Khushwaha said.

Fifty people, including 20 policemen were injured in the stone-pelting, and curfew was clamped in the area. No untoward incident was reported today.
