Govt failed to fulfil promise to probe Jheeram incident in three months: Cong

RAIPUR: The one-member commission constituted by the state government to probe into the Jheeram Valley incident has failed to complete its investigation even after one year, said state Congress president Bhupesh Baghel, at a press conference held at the Congress Bhawan on Sunday evening.

He said that the state government had claimed that the commission would complete the probe in three months. As only three days remaining for completion of one year of the incident, the state government has now submitted affidavit before the commission. It showed how sensitive the state government was towards the incident.

He said that the answer to the points of probe given by the government was contradictory to the facts and baseless. It was not political, but a government conspiracy. Notwithstanding a sensitive area, sufficient security arrangement had not been made, he alleged.

Baghel further said that on the revelation of all the points before the media, they would get opportunity to become alert. Everybody knew that which facts had been hushed up. It is a serious matter that baseless affidavit has been presented by the officer, who has not been posted.

Terming the martyrdom of the Congress leaders an irreparable loss, Baghel said that the Congress held condolence meetings in honour of Jheeram Valley martyrs at block and district level on the first anniversary and paid tearful tributes to the martyred Congress leaders and security personnel.

On a question on the defeat of the Congress in the state, he said that the atmosphere in the entire state was against the Congress. On BK Hariprasad’s declaration to construct Jheeram Ghati Smarak, he said he was not aware of that. Effort would be made to construct Smarak there, if security arrangement is made available. He said that the NIA report had made it clear that the incident was not a political conspiracy. This has proved that the allegations the BJP leaders had made on the Congress leaders were false. For that, the BJP should seek apology from the people.

Accusing the state BJP government, Baghel said that the Sanjeevni 108, Mahtari and Ambulance vehicles were used for carrying liquor and currency in favour of BJP candidates. On the claim of “Good days ahead for Bastar”, he said to ask from the BJP the definition of ‘Good days’.

Konta MLA Kawasi Lakhma, Bastar MLA Lakheshwar Baghel, Chitrakot MLA Deepak Baij, state general secretary Rajesh Tiwari, Karan Dev, Mannuram Kachchh, Shishupal Sori, Premshankar Shukla, Omkarsingh Jaswal, Sriniwas Joshi, Vikram Sharma, Atirikt Shukla and other Congress leaders were present in the press conference.
