MP Industries Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya and his aide Ramesh Mendola have always been able to wriggle out of land-grabbing charges, allegedly using their political clout and money power, a Congress leader has said.

Former MLA Suresh Seth, who went to court against Vijayvargiya and Mendola with allegations of illegally selling the lease on a government land, said, “Since (Chief Minister Shivraj Singh) Chouhan knows that Vijayvargiya has the money power to topple him, he is not acting against him.”

Vijayvargiya, Chouhan’s trouble-shooter, has reportedly strengthened his position in the BJP by organising the national executive meet in Indore in February.

Seth first went to the Economic Offences Wing, which sat on the complaint for a year before forwarding it to the urban administration and development department.

“I made several complaints of land grabbing with proofs gathered under the RTI Act.. But even after six months, there has been no reply," he said.
