Bhopal: Mafia Raj has returned in Madhya Pradesh, said former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Kamal Nath on Friday. He slammed Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan after the death of 14 people in a hooch tragedy in Ujjain and the abduction of a minor boy in Jabalpur.
In a series of tweets in Hindi, Kamal Nath said, “With the return of the Shivraj government in the state, liquor mafia, kidnapping mafia, crime mafia, land mafia, drug mafia, all types of mafia have become active again.” The Mafia Raj has returned in Madhaya Pradesh, he reiterated.
“The liquor mafia took the lives of 14 people in Ujjain, while in Jabalpur the mafia kidnapped a 12-year-old boy. Now the kidnapping mafia is also active,” he said
He said that the entire government was engaged in electioneering and campaigns. “There is no such thing as government in the state. The law and order situation is worse. Sisters and daughters are also insecure. People are left at the mercy of God,” he said.
Taking a dig at Chouhan’s statement, that he is like a priest for the people who are the God, Kamal Nath said, “The real God of those who call the people as Gods and themselves as priests, are the mafia and the adulterators.”
Spurious liquor claimed 14 lives
Meanwhile 14 labourers died after consuming spurious liquor in Madhya Pradesh’s Ujjain district. Police arrested 10 persons in connection with the case so far. Moreover, the administration has suspended four police officials in this case.
The police found bodies of two labourers at Chhatri Chowk Sarai under the Kharakuan police station on Wednesday morning. And by Thursday evening, the number of victims rose to 14.
Chief Medical Officer Dr Mahavir Khandelwal claimed that all of them died after consuming ‘Jhinjhar Potali’, a local intoxicant.
Meanwhile, SP Ujjain Manoj Kumar Singh also confirmed the death of 14 labourers after taking spurious intoxicants.
