The protest is against their alleged involvement in Antagarh Tapes Case and PDS scam
State Congress on Sunday staged a statewide protest against two of the state’s former chief ministers by burning their effigies for their alleged involvement in Antagarh Tapes case and PDS scam.
Official sources in the Congress claimed that they burnt the effigies in around 300 places across the state.
Claiming overwhelming response to their agitation, state general secretary of PCC and chairman of its Communication Wing, Shailesh Nitin Trivedi said there was tremendous resentment among the state populace about the acts of these two former CMs-- Raman Singh and Ajit Jogi.
The wrongful acts of these leaders have come to the fore with the disclosure of Manturam and Shiv Shankar Bhatt in the Antagarh Tapes case and PDS scam respectively by fling affidavits under section 164 in the court, he said.
The corrupt and anti-democratic faces of these two big leaders have now come to fore with the statements of Manturam and Bhatt and to protest their act of maligning the politics of Chhattisgarh the ruling Congress staged the demonstrations, he added.
