Bhind collector Madhukar Agneya in controversy over comments on farmer's death

IAS officer Madhukar Agneya has landed in a controversy over his alleged comments about a farmer.

Congress released an audio recording of the conversation in which Agneya allegedly made light of farmer's suicide.

Agneya allegedly said that if someone has six children, then it is natural that he will have a pathetic life and would die.

The comment came at a time when farmers are committing suicides in the State due to rain and hail storm which affected the crop all over Madhya Pradesh.

Agneya said that the allegation was wrong and he didn't say anything like that. The Congress has attacked the collector for being insensitive towards the farmers.

The BJP is also not happy with the statement. Party chief Nandkumar Singh Chauhan has said that the comment was in a bad taste.

The lesson is that one should be careful about words even in a private conversation. Nothing is private in this era, as anything can be recorded.


Sand mafia kills policeman in Morena in Madhya Pradesh

Once again sand mafia has struck in Madhya Pradesh. A policeman Dharmendra Chauhan was brutally killed on Sunday.

Chauhan was crushed to death by the dumper truck which was involved in illegal transportation of sand mined unlawfully from the riverbed.

He was asked by his superior to stop the truck. But seeing Chauhan, the truck driver ran over him. The policeman died on the spot. This tragic incident took place on April 5.

This is not the first such incident. Morena is known for similar attacks on policemen and other officials.IPS officer Narendra Kumar Singh was killed in similar circumstances in Banmor in this district a couple of years ago.

In that case too, the officer was trying to stop a tractor-trolley when, he was crushed to death. Clearly, it shows that sand mafia has powerful persons' support and hence the criminals are acting fearlessly in Chambal region of Madhya Pradesh. [News clipping courtesy DainikBhaskar.com]
