Mehdele incident: BJP tries caste card

Jhabua, MP, Nov 4 (UNI) Attempting to play the caste card for wriggling out of an embarrassing political situation caused by the Kusum Mehdele incident ahead of two by-polls, the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party’s Madhya Pradesh President Nand Kumar Singh Chauhan today labelled the episode as a conspiracy for ensnaring a Backward Class minister.
“The principal opposition Congress is playing the politics of delusion,” he alleged ,while addressing a rally here.
On Monday, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said Law and Legislative Affairs Minister Mehdele, who was caught on camera misbehaving with a minor in Panna District headquarters, submitted her clarification and the further course of action would be considered.

“Ms Mehdele also sent a clarification to BJP,” he said while interacting with the press in Dewas District headquarters where he addressed a rally.
Meanwhile, the Minister against whom opposition parties staged demonstrations across the state after a video revealing her act went viral on social media said in a statement that the incident being publicised through electronic media never happened. “When I was departing from the state Foundation Day function, a heavily-intoxicated 20-year-old fell and grabbed my feet. I disengaged my feet and boarded my vehicle,'' she added.
The State Commission for Protection of Child Rights sought a report from the Collector. A complaint was received in connection with the incident, Commission Secretary Ramesh Thete told UNI. The Congress lodged the complaint. The Aam Aadmi Party complained to the state Human Rights Commission that sought reports from the Collector, the Superintendent of Police and the Women and Child Development Department.
Congress state Chief Spokesperson KK Mishra described the incident as shameful and said that the party would approach the state Human Rights Commission and also demand Ms Mehdele’s resignation.
In a statement, the Assembly’s former leader of the opposition Ajay Singh said that the Minister must put in her papers. “All the BJP ministers have become egoistic and intoxicated by power. The Chief Minister should forthwith axe Ms Mehdele from the Council,” he felt.
