Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghelhit back saying Jhiram Ghatimassacre is the biggest example of BJP-Naxalites nexus


A political war between the ruling Congress and the opposition BJP has escalated after alleged arrest of a Congress leader from Chhattisgarh with four naxalitesin Telangana recently. 

After BJP Chhattisgarh president Arun Sao wrote a letter to Union Home Minister Amit Shah seeking a thorough investigation into the matter so as to expose how many other Congress leaders have nexus with the naxalites, Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel hit back at the BJP alleging the BJP has the nexus with Naxalites and Jhiram massacre is the biggest example of this.

The Chief Minister said that no disclosure has been made so far in the case of Bhima Mandavi. The state government was barred from conducting the investigation. NIA should tell what happened, said the chief minister. Arun Sao should also write a letter in this matter, Baghel said.

Earlierm opposition BJP has cornered the ruling Congress after its block general secretary was caught with four naxalites, including two women naxalites, in Telangana and demanded a high-level inquiry into the matter citing the safety of people of Chhattisgarh. 

BJP state president Arun Sao has written to Union home minister Amit Shah expressing concern over the development in which Chhattisgarh Congress’s Bhopalpatnam block general secretary K G Satyam was caught with naxalites in Telangana. Congress has claimed that Satyam, at present, is associated with Congress in any form. He was earlier in Congress. 

Sao urged the home minister for an investigation to expose as to how many other people have nexus with the Naxalites. Sao wrote to the Union minister that the situation in other states has improved as far as naxalviolence is concerned unlike Chhattisgarh.

Meanwhile, tribal leader and former minister in BJP government Mahesh Gagda alleged that Naxalites are working like ‘B team’ of Congress today while talking to media here on Monday.

He said that Naxalites had incited farmers of Chhattisgarh by circulating letters against the Central government and the language used in the letters was matching the languages generally used by the Congress to a greater extent.

There was not even a single word written in that letter criticizing the Congress government whereas the policies of the ruling party has claimed many lives of farmers.

Gagda also demanded that the Center should investigate separately on the nexus of Naxalites and Congress.

Gagda also dragged national leadership of Congress like Digvijay Singh, Raj Babbar for making statements in favour of Naxalites from time to time.

Recently, Naxalites celebrated Martyrdom Week in Chhattisgarh and took out a huge rally involving around 12000 people. A 65-feet high monument was built. Naxalites carrying reward of Rs50 lakh to one croreparticipated in the rally, but no action was taken against them by the state government, said Gagda. The chief minister should have launched an inquiry into the matter, he said.

Meanwhile, Congress state spokesperson Dhananjay Singh Thakur said that a missing report of Satyam was filed in the police station by his relatives four days back. Naxalites had kidnapped him with his four-wheeler so that they can transport a member of their group, who was ill, for treatment in Telangana. Thakur further said that the BJP is yet to respond to alleged movement of Naxalites to the residence of Vikram Usendi and Lata Usendi.
