BJP State President Rakesh Singh claimed that Congress is directly involved in the incident in which stones were pelted on Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s Jan Ashirwad Yatra in Churhat of Sidhi district on Sunday night. Condemning the incident, Singh said investigation is underway and law will take its course into the case.


Addressing the press conference in the State capital, Rakesh Singh claimed that as CM’s Jan Ashirwad Yatra’s popularity is increasing, Congress is getting more perplexed. Sensing its inevitable defeat in coming Assembly elections, it has stooped down to lowest level and stone pelting incident of Churhat is the sign of this.


Talking about the Churhat incident, Singh claimed, “It was like a murderous plot as stones were thrown targeting Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan. Its due to grace of God that the CM is safe,”.


Moreover, he alleged that entire incident was well-planned and done on the instance of Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh. Preparations of the incident were done in advance and even rehearsals were done. One of the accused, Ramvilas Patel is Block Committee President of Congress in Churhat and he had allegedly given money to stone pelters. Another accused Pankaj Singh is local IT Cell President of Churhat. “Even the accused have confessed to their crime,” he claimed.


He added that there were two women accused as well and their names are Ranjana Mishra and Basanti Kol. Ranjana is office-bearer of Youth Congress.


“The incident was part of well planned conspiracy” he alleged. However, he tried to duck the question as to why Home Minister Bhupendra Singh and intelligence agencies of government could not get air about incident in advance. He told that it is for government to ponder over whether it was an intelligence failure or not.


On this occasion, BJP National Vice President Prabhat Jha, Union Minister Narendra Singh Tomar, Minister of State Vishwas Sarang were present.


Notably when CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s Jan Ashirwad Yatra reached Churhat in Sidhi district, some persons threw stones wrapped in black clothes. The CM escaped incident unhurt but windscreen of bus was damaged partially. Since then BJP is breathing fire against Congress.
