The state minister Ranjana Baghel slapped a tribal woman and threatened her when she asked the minister about non-fulfilment of the promises made by Baghel earlier.
Baghel had gone to Palasi village near Manawar (Dhar district) for election campaign of her husband Mukam Singh Kirade when the woman, Ganga Bai, 35, questioned her on loan waivers.
But the minister was so stung by the query that she hit the tribal woman. This shocked the villagers. Police did not register an FIR initially but when the Congress leaders led by Jamuna Devi reached the police station, the case was registered.
Baghel was booked for causing hurt to a woman and threatening her. Congress leaders said that they would raise the issue of mistreatment with the woman and the arrogance of the minister.
Ranjana Baghel looks after Women and Child Development department. She also has charge of social justice department. She had earlier promised to waive farm loans up to Rs 50,000 when she was contesting election but this remained an announcement.
Once again an MLA has been murdered in Madhya Pradesh. Makhanlal Jatav, a Congress MLA from Gohad seat in Bhind, was shot dead, by unidentified persons when he was getting into the car.
Jatav was campaigning for his party's official candidate for the Lok Sabha election, Dr Bhagirath Prasad. The murder has shocked the local residents and has also signalled the growing criminalisation of politics in state.
Jatav was shot in the head. He was returning after addressing a public function in Chhareta. Two shots were fired at him. He was taken to hospital where he was declared dead.
Makhan Jatav had defeated BJP's Lal Singh Arya in the Assembly elections. His son blames that some BJP leader were responsible for killing Jatav. Police have arrested Pappu Sharma 'Pandit' but it is not clear at whose behest he murdered Jatav.
A few months ago during the Assembly election, the BJP's candidate from Prithvipur constituency, Sunil Naik, was murdered. He was shot in the neck. Congress MLA Brijendra Singh Rathore's brother was accused of the murder.
