MP govt shields those involved in labourers' deaths: Congress
Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh assembly Opposition leader Ajay Singh on Sunday charged the BJP government of protecting the man responsible for the death of 14 labourers in Rewa district.
In a letter to MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, he said that no case had been registered even a week after 10 labourers died in a wall collapse at Rewa's rice mills.
Ajay alleged that all this happened because contractor Mahendra Shukla is related to the MP Energy Minister Rajendra Shukla who is in-charge of Rewa district.
He alleged the same contractor was responsible for the death of four labourers while constructing a wall for the Rani Lake.
He said that Chouhan should give up his affection for the minister and instead look into the matter.
