BJP, Congress spar over tribal welfare

Team Absolute|Bhopal Ahead of by-polls in Madhya Pradesh, both the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress are claiming the support of tribals by flaunting the welfare works done by them in tribal areas. Reacting to Congress allegations on pitiable condition of tribals in the state, home minister Narottam Mishra said that Congress should clarify about the welfare works done during its 15-month rule in the state. Mishra also justified the FIR registered against Congress leader Jitu Patwari in Indore.
“Congress should come clear on what the party has done for the tribals during 15-month of its rule in the state. Congress had promised farm loan waiver and stipend to unemployed youths but failed to fulfill the promises. Congress claims about tribals are merely an attempt to save its vote bank,” said Mishra. The BJP minister also attacked former chief minister Kamal Nath for threatening to hit streets against FIR registered on party leader Jitu Patwari. Mishra said that the case against Congress MLA is justified. “I know better how fake cases were registered against BJP leaders by the previous Congress government. Kamal Nath talks about hitting streets, but he should come out of Chhindwara instead. In fact he has pushed the entire party on the road,” said Mishra.Nath had on Sunday opposed registering a case against Patwari in a ‘fake’social media post.Meanwhile, state urban development minister,Bhupendra Singh has justified the case against Patwari and demanded that he should be sued for treason. “The act by Patwari is highly objectionable and malicious. He has not only insulted the Prime Minister but the entire country and Hinduism. The act is a proof of the dirty mentality of Congress MLA. A case of treason should be registered against him,” said Singh.
