The opposition Congress will move a censure motion against Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan during the winter session of the State assembly beginning on Tuesday for allegedly seeking to influence the probe into Professor H S Sabharwal death.
Addressing a press conference, leader of Opposition in the State Assembly Jamuna Devi said that deteriorating law & order situation in the light of murder of BJP MLA Kishorilal Verma and his wife and Prof Sabharwal’s killing on his college campus, death of over 50 persons due to release of excess water from a dam in Sindhu river in Datia district, lifting of ban on State Government employees to participate in RSS activities and bus mishap at Govindgarh in Rewa district and chikungunya and dengue scare in some parts of the State are some of the issues, which the Opposition would raise forcefully in the forthcoming winter session.
She said that State Government’s inability to check the spread of Chikungunya and Dengue diseases, manhandling of police officers by the BJP activists and failure of the State Government to provide relief to farmers hit by floods and drought are some of the other issues which would be raised to ‘expose’ the multiple failures of the State Government.
Jamuna Devi said that release of excessive water in Sindhu river from a dam, which killed more than 50 people, was an example of administrative lapse that has been a hallmark of the present BJP government.
She further said that the killing of Verma and his wife has once again brought to fore the ‘fact’ that law & order situation in the State has collapsed and the State was heading towards ‘jungle raj’.
She said that Opposition would also table a resolution under rule 130 to make it mandatory for the Chief Minister and his ministerial colleagues to present details of their assets in the House every year.
