Madhya Pradesh: Kamal Nath govt decides to withdraw nearly 50,000 cases filed against Congress leaders and workers

The BJP cried foul over the decision to withdraw cases filed against Congress workers and leaders in the state by Kamal Nath government.

In a controversial decision, the Congress-led Madhya Pradesh government has decided to withdraw nearly 50,000 cases filed against Congress workers and leaders in the state in the last 15 years, reported Asian Age.

According to the report, the decision of the Kamal Nath government to allow Congress workers to get away in nearly 50,000 cases comes after a cabinet meeting which was held earlier in January. The Congress government had decided to withdraw cases filed against Congress workers and leaders in the state during the 15-year-rule of BJP in Madhya Pradesh.

After the cabinet decision, the state government had constituted three-member district level committees comprising district collector, superintendent of police and district prosecutor to examine such cases and forward them to state home department to initiate the process to withdraw cases filed against Congress workers.

“Around 50,000 cases have been identified by the district committees and later referred to state home department for withdrawal”, the official spokesman said.

Earlier this month, it was reported that Kamal Nath government was set to table a bill which would scrap all cases against politicians and farmers filed in the last 15 years. The bill is expected to be presented in the monsoon session.

However, the BJP cried foul over the decision to withdraw cases filed against Congress workers and leaders in the state by Kamal Nath government.
