Bhopal: AICC general secretary Jyotiraditya Scindia on Monday renewed his attack against Kamal Nath government questioning how people arrested for their alleged involvement in spurious food trade were let off without punishment.

Mr Scindia’s fresh attack against the Congress government in Madhya Pradesh comes in the wake of his exposure of failure by the chief minister Kamal Nath to fulfill his promise of waiving farm loans up to `two lakh of each peasant in the state. He was addressing Congress workers in Gwalior in MP.

“It is not proper to bail out the businessmen involved in illicit trade of spurious food”, he said.

Mr Scindia indicated that cases against such people were being closed without knowledge of state health minister Tulsi Silawat and urged the minister, who was present on the occasion to ensure that such people were brought to book.

Mr Scindia’s vituperative attack on the Kamal Nath government has caused huge embarrassment to the chief minister as well as the ruling party.

Mr Scindia, who has been sulking ever since Mr Nath was chosen over him by the Central party leadership to become chief minister of the state after Congress returned to power in MP after a gap of 15 years, appeared upset over the delay in replacing Mr Nath with him as president of MP Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC).
