Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister
Shivraj Singh Chouhan today denied reports which quoted him
saying that tough collectors were posted in a number of
districts to deal firmly with the Congress MLAs.

The reports are totally baseless, Chouhan said in the
State Assembly, just before the commencement of the Question
Hour.

I respect not just the MLAs but all the elected
representatives, he added.

Soon after the Question Hour was over, Congress MLA,
Kalpana Parulekar raised the issue and demanded that if the
Chief Minister has not said any thing of that sort then, the
State Government`s public relation department should issue a
denial on the issue.

According to reports in a section of media, Chouhan,
during the BJP`s Legislature Party meeting yesterday, had said
that tough collectors were posted in several districts to
firmly deal with the Congress MLAs and this might have caused
trouble for the ruling party MLAs too.
