THE CONGRESS on Tuesday suggested a combined operation by Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan police to contain dacoit menace in the Chambal region.
The suggestion was contained in a memorandum submitted to Governor Dr Balram Jakhar by a delegation of Congress leaders led by State party chief Subhash Yadav.
Expressing concern over inefficiency of police to curb dacoit menace in Chambal, the delegation said selective killing of persons from Gurjar community by Gadaria gang in Shivpuri district was leading to a situation of caste conflict in the region.
Meanwhile in Gwalior district youth Congress on Tuesday staged a demonstration at Maharaj Bada to protest the killing of five persons by Gadaria dacoit gang and what it alleged deteriorating law and order situation in the State.
Former MLA Ramesh Agrawal addressing the activists said that the incident has occurred despite the claims of the Government and police that dacoit menace would end. Chief Minizster Shivraj Singh Chouha should resign for his failure to protect the people of the State, he said.
He said that massacre of five persons at Karyara village was ‘the result of police and administrative inaction.’ District Youth Congress president Ravindra Singh Bhadoria said that the people in the State were feeling insecure as the police was unable to curb crime.
