Rajnandgaon (Chhattisgarh): BJP president Amit Shah on Friday called for a Bureau Investigation (CBI) to probe into the death of BJP MLA Bhima Mandavi, who lost his life in the Dantewada Naxal attack on April 9. He demanded the Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel allow the Central government to appoint CBI in the investigation.
“I want to tell the Chief Minister of Chhattisgarh that if you do not have to hide anything, then you should allow CBI probe in the murder. The truth will surely come out,” Shah said while addressing a gathering. “With the arrival of the Congress government in Chhattisgarh, CBI was banned in the state. Earlier Raman Singhji’s government was there, he never stopped the CBI because there was no corruption under his rule,” he said.
In his speech aiming at Congress president Rahul Gandhi and UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi, Mr. Shah said: “I want to tell Rahul baba that slogans will not bring development. If you feel the pain of poor in your heart, only then you can bring development.” He accused the ‘Sonia-Manmohan’s government’ for the corruption of Rs 12 lakh crores in 10 years.
Chhattisgarh will go to polls in the first three phases from April 11 to April 23 for its 11 Parliamentary constituencies. Counting of votes will be done on May 23.
