Amid the ongoing political drama in Madhya Pradesh, Congress MLA from Suwasra in Mandsaur City Hardeep Singh Dang on Thursday (March 5) resigned from the state assembly. 

Notably, the Congress has been repeatedly saying since Wednesday (March 4) that Dang was taken away to Bengaluru by three other Madhya Pradesh MLAs in a bid to topple the Chief Minister Kamal Nath-led government in the state.

The other MLAs are Bisahulal Singh, Raghuraj Kansana and Independent MLA Thakur Surendra Singh. 

Commenting on Dang’s resignation, CM Kamal Nath said, “I have received information about Hardeep Singh Dang’s resignation. I have not yet received any letter from him or discussed the matter in person. Until I meet him personally, making comments over it will not be appropriate.”

Madhya Pradesh Assembly Speaker NP Prajapati said that he has heard about Dang’s resignation but the MLA is yet to tender his resignation from the Assembly in person. “I have received the news of Hardeep Singh Dang’s resignation. He has not tendered his resignation to me in person. When he submits his resignation to me, I will consider it as per the rules and take necessary action,” he said.

Madhya Pradesh BJP chief VD Sharma said that Dang’s resignation shows that the Congress MLAs are not happy with their own leadership and they are facing harassment within the party. “It shows that in the present state govt of Congress, their own party leaders are being harassed. It reflects upon the miserable situation of the corrupt Congress govt which is going to meet its end soon,” Sharma noted.

Madhya Pradesh :

BHOPAL/ BARWANI: Demanding food and transportation, hundreds of migrant workers on Thursday pelted stones near Sendhwa on the Madhya Pradesh-Maharashtra border.

Thousands of migrants, on the way to northern states from

Maharashtra

amid the coronavirus crisis, are pouring in at Sendhwa in Madhya Pradesh’s Barwani district.

Eye witnesses said that groups of migrants created ruckus, alleging that government machinery made no arrangement of food and transportation for them.

In the afternoon, some of them pelted stones, but nobody was injured in the incident, witnesses said.

Shailesh Tripathi, who reached Barwani from Pune, said migrants, which included pregnant women, senior citizens and children, were facing a lot of hardship in the absence of food, water and transportation facilities.

A large number of migrants were waiting for food and transport on MP-Maharashtra border for hours, and people from Satna, Rewa, Anuppur and other districts of MP were also among them, he said.

Barwani collector Amit Tomar said the migrants were sent to transit points in different districts in 135 buses from the border.

Stone-pelting took place as some migrants felt after the buses left that there would not be any more vehicles for those left behind, but officials reassured them and calmed them down, he said.

Meanwhile, the state government said that about 15,000 migrant labourers were taken from Sendhwa border (Bijasen Ghat border) to other places in the past three days while there has been a huge influx from Maharashtra.

“The maximum pressure of migrants is being faced at Bijasan Ghat on the border of Sendhwa (MP-Maharashtra). 5,000 to 6,000 migrant workers are reaching there every day,” a government statement said.

Migrant workers were being transported by buses for free to Dewas transit point after providing them food and conducting medical tests, it said.

From Dewas, they are sent to Sagar, Chhatarpur, Guna and Shivpuri by buses.

Subsequently, migrant workers of other districts of the state are transported to their home districts and those from

Uttar Pradesh

,

Jharkhand

and

Bihar

are ferried to the border of UP, the state government said.

Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan appealed migrants not to panic.

“Do not panic in this hour of crisis, the Government of Madhya Pradesh will ensure that every migrant worker reaches home. Arrangements for food, temporary stay, medical check-up and buses have been made. This arrangement will continue until all the migrant workers reach their destinations,” Chouhan said.

Additional Chief Secretary ICP Keshari informed that over 2.26 lakh migrant workers were brought back to MP by road from other states while 86,000 migrants were brought by the special trains.

Eight labourers died and over 54 suffered injuries after the truck they were travelling in was hit by a speeding bus in Madhya Pradesh’s Guna earlier this morning. The incident was reported hours after six migrant workers were run over by a bus on a highway in Uttar Pradesh.

In the fatal incident in Madhya Pradesh, the truck travelling from Maharashtra to Uttar Pradesh with around 70 labourers was hit by a speeding bus on a bypass road in Guna, leaving eight dead. Around 55-60 labourers also suffered injuries in the incident which took place around 3 am, police said. Most of the labourers are from Unnao district in Uttar Pradesh, they added.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan expressed condolences over deaths of migrant workers. “Received the tragic news of accident involving migrant labourers travelling from Maharashtra to Uttar Pradesh. I pray to god to give their loved ones strength to overcome this,” tweeted Mr Chouhan in Hindi.

The chief minister said that the state is providing best possible medical treatment to those injured.

दुर्घटना में सभी घायलों को अस्पताल में भर्ती करा दिया गया है। प्रशासन के उच्च अधिकारी मौके पर उपस्थित हैं। घायलों के समुचित इलाज की व्यवस्था कर दी गई है। सभी घायल भाई – बहनों के शीघ्र स्वस्थ होने की कामना करता हूं!

The bus was travelling from Guna to Ahmedabad, the police said, adding that only a driver and a cleaner were travelling in it.

“We were asleep when the incident took place. There were around 55-60 people in the truck. The incident took place around 3 am,” said a labourer who was travelling in the truck.

“The incident took place in Guna bypass road. The labourers were travelling from Mumbai to their hometown in Unnao in Uttar Pradesh. A bus was travelling from Guna to Ahmedabad. Three people have minor injuries. We are making efforts to send them to Unnao,” said a police official.

In the other tragic incident from Uttar Pradesh, six migrant workers were run over by a state government bus on a highway in the Muzaffarnagar district on Wednesday night. The workers had been walking to their hometown in Bihar from Punjab amid the coronavirus lockdown, police said

The bus was empty and the driver has been arrested, they added.

Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath has ordered a top state government official to carry out an enquiry about the circumstances leading to the accident. He has also announced a compensation of Rs 2 lakh to the family of the dead and Rs 50,000 for the injured.

Accidents involving migrant workers who are walking home have been reported from across the country in recent days. Last week, 16 migrant workers in a group of 20 were killed after a cargo train ran over them while they were sleeping on the tracks in Maharashtra’s Aurangabad.

With an intention to reach Aurangabad railway station, which on Thursday flagged off a train to Madhya Pradesh, for boarding trains to their hometown in northern states of India, they started walking from Jalna, which is 65km from here. So as to avoid getting zeroed by the police on the highways, these migrant workers opted for the railway tracks heading Aurangabad.

After walking for several kilometres, they decided to take rest on the railway tracks between Satana and Karmad, before resuming their journey on Friday morning.

With no place to go, all of them slept on the railway tracks. On learning about the incident, Aurangabad rural superintendent of police Mokshada Patil, Railway Protection Force teams from Aurangabad and police teams from Karmad police station rushed to the spot.

Citing the call received by the Aurangabad city police control room, deputy commissioner of police (headquarter) Meena Makwana said, “Aurangabad railway station manager Ashok Nikam informed the police control room that 10 to 15 migrant labourers that were sleeping on the railway tracks have been run over by a goods train carrying petrol – diesel, and heading Manmad from Nanded”.
