In addition, the affidavit also claimed that 15 police staff, who were located negligent and derelict in carrying out their responsibilities have been punished by lowering their pay back for a period of time of two to 3 decades.

Madhya Pradesh bypolls are vital for Congress but it has presented up even before starting
The Congress social gathering, which was dethroned from energy in Madhya Pradesh by a BJP-led coup which experienced the guidance of previous senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia and his loyalists, has not been rather equipped to decide on up alone and restore order in the point out ranks, as the social gathering acts in a way which shows how it has completely presented up on the condition, with no battling spirit remaining in the Congress’ state leaders any longer. The Madhya Pradesh bypolls, which are scheduled to be held quickly, is viewing an intense BJP by now gearing up to struggle on all of the 27 seats which will be up for grabs, even when it really involves only 9 to consolidate its existing electric power.
The bypolls to the Madhya Pradesh Assembly are all established to be executed concurrently with the Bihar condition elections someday in November. The assembly seats were being rendered vacant immediately after the resignation of Congress MLA’s loyal to Jyotiraditya Scindia earlier this year, just after which they joined the BJP. This has necessitated bypolls to the 27 seats in Madhya Pradesh’s Assembly. Scindia is now a Rajya Sabha MP on a BJP ticket from Madhya Pradesh.
Congress is necessary to acquire all 27 seats if it would like to stage a comeback in the state, which is a near impossibility. One would be expecting that the social gathering, facing losses, humiliation and riot in one condition immediately after the other will at the very least set up a combat against the BJP, but it is Kamal Nath alone who is having difficulties to maintain the Congress afloat in the point out. He is acquiring no support from the point out leadership of the bash, which is in shambles after the ouster of the Congress govt earlier this yr.
Kamal Nath has roped in Sachin Pilot for campaigning in Madhya Pradesh, a man whose personal future in the celebration continues to be under issue, and who, in the around upcoming will most unquestionably give up the Congress. In the same way, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is also said to have roadshows scheduled in the state in the run-up to the bypolls, but her overall performance in the Uttar Pradesh condition elections, even though in a pre-poll alliance with the Samajwadi Party, were not remarkable at all, to say the the very least.
Therefore, Congress is visibly not fascinated to place up a fight in opposition to the BJP in the point out. Meanwhile, Shivraj Singh Chauhan has long gone to the extent of contacting himself a ‘temporary Chief Minister’ until the benefits of the bypolls, providing the BJP a the vast majority on its individual are not declared. To guarantee the very same, the Main Minister, together with the overall condition equipment of the saffron occasion has taken to marketing campaign for the assembly seats up for grabs, and are properly poised to acquire handsomely later on this yr.
