Gwalior: Accusing the Madhya Pradesh government of adopting "partisan" approach, union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia has said the action taken against the Congress workers smacks of "Hitler's rule" in the state.

"The action taken by the district administration against the Congress workers smacks of Hitler's rule in the state," Scinidia told reporters along with the party MLA, Tulsi Silavat in the Jail Superintendent's office yesterday after meeting the partymen lodged in the prison here.

The Union Minister of state for Commerce and Industry also demanded that cases should be registered against both the parties and not just against the opposition Congress.

Scindia was referring to recent arrest of Congress workers by police when they laid a siege to Bahodpura police station protesting against the police for not registering cases against the BJP workers after the recent clash between them.

The minister also said protocal was violated as the local corporator was not allowed to conduct the programme of inauguration of a road in the city.

Meanwhile, senior BJP leader Jaibhan Singh Pavaiya said Scindia had violated the jail manual by taking press confererence in the jail superintendent's room.

However, the Jail Superintendent B S Alaba said since large number of people entered into the premises, he asked the minister to sit in his room following which media persons also entered inside it and spoke to Scindia.
