A Congress councillor in Madhya Pradesh’s Sheopur today staged a unique protest by dumping garbage outside the municipality office. The councillor Lakshmi Shivhare reached the office with her supporters and dumbed the garbage at the door of the Chief Municipality Officer’s (CMO) office.
A video of this incident went viral on social media on Wednesday. The councillor alleged that the CMO has been ignoring her requests of cleaning her ward area for the last three months. Everybody was in trouble because of the unwanted garbage. The garbage could cause many diseases. She said that no one would take responsibility for the diseases.
On Tuesday, many Congress workers staged protests at Indore Municipality Corporation (IMC) headquarters. The party workers alleged that the municipality officials were doing partiality toward BJP corporators and leaders. They also alleged corruption, poor conditions of roads and waterlogging. Former Congress minister Sajjan Singh Verma and Jittu Patwari were leading the protest.
IMC’s leader of opposition Chintu Choukse said that they have set out spies in every department and they would take action against those found involved in corruption or taking bribes. IMC officials turned blind eye to the illegal construction but serve notice after completion of the building to get the matter settled. They demolished the buildings when the settlement failed.
The Congress workers also raised the issues of corruption in water tanker allotment and partiality in LED light distribution.
Sajjan Singh said that Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan may lose his chair in the next 8-10 years. He further said that Prime Minister Narendra Modi has brought eight cheetahs from Africa to counter the self-proclaimed Tiger Shivraj Singh Chouhan and he would lose his chair anytime soon.
Madhya Pradesh BJP lost control of seven corporations in the municipal elections held in July this year.
