Bhopal: The effigy of Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled Madhya Pradesh Government's Home Minister Umashankar Gupta's effigy was put on fire here on Tuesday by Congress activists to express their ire over the deteriorating law and order situation in the state.


The Congress workers along with Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee, (MPCC), office-bearers were infuriated over the ever increasing crime rate in the state like loots, abductions, dacoities, murders, rapes, gang-rapes etc. While putting afire the effigy near the MPCC office they demanded from the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to immediately recommend to the Governor to dismiss the Home Minister forthwith.


According to Congressmen, criminals are indulging in their dare-devil acts under the protection of ministers and BJP leaders and as such they care two hoots about the police. The police force has become a silent spectator under political pressure, they charged.


MPCC general secretary Lalit Jain, spokesmen KK Mishra, Arvind Malviya, JP Dhanopia and Congress leaders Deepti Singh, Ravishankar Pandey, Pooja Thakur, Priti Markam, Richa Gaur, Kalpana Joshi, Sushila Joshi, Arun Chouhan, Rahul Sharma, Amit Singh, Vikram Singh, Monu Koushalesh were present amongst hundreds of Congress activists on the occasion.


Meanwhile, Congress Leader of the Opposition in the State Assembly Ms Jamuna Devi while expressing concern over the dismal law and order situation in the State in a statement alleged that the main cause was the ruling BJP's "needless intervention" in administration.


While referring to offences including Monday's major crimes in Madhya Pradesh's commercial capital Indore and state capital Bhopal, she said the BJP regime seems to be clueless to the rising crime graph and as such is useless. The tribal leader alleged that while Chief Minister Chouhan was busy extolling his “achievements”,' the anti-socials were indulging in horrendous crimes one after the other right under the government's nose.


"This constitutes both a challenge to the regime and mockery of it," she felt and suggested that the Chief Minister must ensure that senior officials take stock of the ground-level situation and come face-to-face with reality.


Ms Jamuna Devi cited some of the recent incidents wherein in Burhanpur boys burnt an adolescent girl belonging to Scheduled Caste when she protested their advances. In the state capital a university student became victim of gang-rape. In another incident an engineering student shot at his fiancé before shooting himself dead.
