Shivraj Singh Chouhan`s cabinet induction belies his claim on graft: Congress
Bhopal: Congress leader Ajay Singh alleged that seven out of 23 ministers inducted in the Madhya Pradesh government were "corrupt", which he said belies Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan`s claim of zero tolerance to corruption.
In a statement issued last evening, the former leader of opposition in Assembly alleged that seven of the 23 ministers inducted in the Chouhan government were corrupt.
Four ministers were facing inquiry by the Lokayukta, he claimed.
Also, Chouhan, who advocates 50 per cent reservation for the women, failed to give enough berths to them in his cabinet, and the women MLAs from underprivileged classes were totally ignored, he said.
Chief Minister also ignored scheduled castes, scheduled tribes, other backward classes and Malwa and Nimar regions, while picking up three ministers from a small district of Raisen, Ajay said.
Chouhan, who won the Assembly elections for the third time in a row earlier this month, inducted 23 ministers in his ministry yesterday.
