Overall 22 government officials are attacked every day in Madhya Pradesh under the BJP dispensation, said Ajay Maken, in- charge of communication department of AICC (All India Congress Committee), on Sunday.

He was on a daylong visit to the state capital to attend a workshop of district and block-level spokespersons.

“Not only vulnerable sections of society but even state government employees are not safe in MP. By the state government’s own admission, 22 government officials are attacked every day in the state. The state government has accepted this fact on the floor of the state assembly,” said Maken.

Maken said he was surprised to observe that the development works carried out in MP were not in proportion to the funds sent from the Centre.

This clearly indicated that there was rampant corruption under the BJP dispensation.

The state government may be painting a rosy picture of its achievement but the fact is that MP ranks first in malnutrition and malnutrition deaths.

MP records highest number of crimes.

Crime against women is also highest in the state, which records highest number of rapes and abduction of girls.

Women are unsafe in the state, said Maken.
