Oppn to bring no-trust motion against BJP Govt in MP: Congress



Bhopal: The new Leader of Opposition in Madhya Pradesh Assembly and Congress member Ajay Singh on Saturday said a no-confidence motion would be brought this year against the BJP Government.

"Two Assembly sessions are slated to be held this year and the no-confidence motion would be brought in one of them," he said at a press conference here.

"Black papers" on the "misdeeds" of the Shivraj Singh Chouhan Government would be issued from time to time, he said.

"We have seen many white papers but the misdeeds of this government can be listed only in a black paper," he said.

The Congress leader said corruption had reached its peak in Madhya Pradesh. "The Congress would expose corruption in the state and bring before the people its ugly face."

Although the BJP was in power, the ruling party had fallen into the clutches of the Sangh Parivar which was deciding most things in Madhya Pradesh, he said.

Madhya Pradesh used to be earlier known as an island of peace, but now it had been turned into a "haven for criminals", the Congress legislator said.

Ajay said the law and order situation was precarious, the kidnapping industry was flourishing, incidents of rape were on the rise and Dalit women were being insulted.

The manner in which a piece of land had been allotted by the BJP Government to the Kushabhau Thakre trust had come in for sharp criticism from the Supreme Court, Ajay said.

Graft cases were pending with the Lokayukta against several Ministers but they continue to hold office, he said.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is fond of talking about a golden Madhya Pradesh, but nothing had been done in this direction, the Congress leader added.
