Discrimination with Dalits in CM's native village!

The reports that Dalits are denied entry in temples in the ancestral village of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, are shocking and rather than going into denial mode, the party should take corrective measures.

The Dalit families in Jait village told media persons that they were not allowed to step into the temple. "We are told that Chamars can't get inside", said Vaijyanti, a Dalit woman who lives near Chouhan's ancestral house.

Congress has attacked the ruling party over the practice of untouchability. PCC chief Suresh Pachouri has visited the village. National Commission for Scheduled Castes (NCSC) Buta Singh has also made a tour of the place after the news hit media headlines.

He said that Dalits were made to enter the temple during his visit but it looked stage-managed at. BJP government appears on the backfoot but it should better concentrate on eradicating such social evils. Jait is located in Sehore, a district that borders Bhopal.

BJP defends ex-minister arrested in murder case

Former revenue minister and BJP leader Kamal Patel was arrested for destroying evidence in a murder case in which his son is an accused. The CBI arrested him and Patel is now in judicial remand in jail.

But the patry is backing the tainted leader from Harda, who has courted controversies in the past also. Patel was arrested in connection with Durgesh Jat murder case.

Jat, a teenager, had disappeared on March 5, 2008 after a shootout between Kamal Patel's son Sudeep and local Congress leader Rajendra Patel at the latter's farmhouse in Harda.

Durgesh's father Ramvilas Jat had approached court. Then the Jabalpur High Court asked CBI for inquiry. Patel was charged with section 304, 204 and 120 (B). The CBI hasn't succeeded in tracing the body of Duresh Jat.

But the BJP has come in support. Kailash Vijayvargiya who is already facing corruption charges has said that CBI is acting at the behest of Centre. State BJP chief Prabhat Jha is also unfazed over the charges. BJP workers and BJYM activists staged demonstration to protest the action on Patel.

The court has refused to grant him bail and he is lodged in the Indore jail. Kamal Patel is also accused of involvement in an attack on activist Shamim Modi in Harda. She had contested the election against her in the past.

Indore's terror connection hurts Madhya Pradesh image

In cases of crime and terrorism, the name of Indore frequently comes up though this historical city has always been known for its culture and communal harmony.

But somewhere things changed in the last two decades. Fundamentalism and fanaticism gained ground. First the City got notoriety for its underworld connections and now terrorism is also linked to it.

CBI and Anti-terrorist squads regularly raid places in Indore and towns around it. Ajmer Dargah blast case, militants' targeting Hyderabad's Mecca Masjid and Malegaon bomb blast are connected to Malwa. Pragya Thakur was arrested here.

Before Hindu groups' involvement in terrorism, the Muslim hardliners like SIMI was functioning here. The SIMI mastermind Safdar Nagori was arrested in Indore. Why has this peaceful City turned into a place of lawlessness.

Crime rate of Indore is also going up. Murders and loots are daily affairs but there is no movement for peace and ensuring communal harmong among the citizens of Indore, which is also called Mini Bombay.
