The Police have registered a case against ten Congress leaders, including former Madhya Pradesh chief minister and Rajya Sabha Congress MP Digvijay Singh, for allegedly violating government orders under the Covid rules.
Digvijay and about 200 activists staged a protest against the allotment of land to the RSS in the Govindpura industrial estate. Ashoka Garden police have registered a case against them under sections 188, 147 and 269 for protesting while Section 144 was enforced in Bhopal.
Along with Digvijay, cases have been registered against former minister PC Sharma, Congress district president Kailash Mishra and other leaders, police said, adding that they will check the video and take further action. Digvijay alleged that the Shivraj Singh’s government had allotted 10,000 square feet of land to Laghu Udyog Bharti, an RSS affiliate, which actually had a garden in it. Police used water cannons to disperse agitated Congress activists.
Earlier, Digvijay got into an altercation with District Collector Avinash Lavania and DGI Irshad Wali. Mr Lavania said after the dharna that an FIR would be registered against those who staged a protest without permission.
