Stop slaughterhouse construction near temple: Digvijaya Singh to his son

Former Madhya Pradesh Minister and Rajya Sabha member Digvijaya Singh have written to his Minister son Jaivardhan Singh (MP Urban Development Minister) to quickly stop implementation of previous BJP regime's decision to built a slaughterhouse near a temple on Bhopal's outskirt as it has hurt the feelings of lakhs of devotees. The letter read that many pilgrims visit the Kankali Temple during the Navratri. Not only is the temple is close to the Adampur Chhavni, the site of the slaughterhouse, but three more temples, including a Ram Temple and an ISCKON Temple, are located on the road leading to the Kankali Temple. Earlier during the BJP regime, a decision was taken to shift the existing slaughterhouse from Subhash Nagar to Adampur Chhavni, which was opposed by the Congress workers at that time. Src:

Do BJP leaders have guts to sit on hunger strike in Delhi: Kamal Nath

Madhya Pradesh CM Kamal Nath, while addressing a public event after inaugurating a 220-bed govt hospital in Jabalpur, accused BJP and its senior leaders, including ex-CM Shivraj Chouhan of playing "camera politics" in the name of protesting for the cause of people hit by rain and flood in the state. Nath said, "If BJP leaders, including Shivraj Singh Chouhan, are so concerned about the cause of our farmers and people hit badly by rains and floods, why are they protesting in MP. They should instead go to Delhi and sit on a hunger strike there against their govt for a central relief package for the state. Have they got the guts to demonstrate and resort to hunger strike against their central govt in Delhi?" Src:
