On Saturday, the police registered a criminal case against four Congress leaders, including former Madhya Pradesh minister Jeetu Patwari, for staging a strike in Rajwada region of Indore without administrative permission.

The accused in the case include three Congress MLAs including Patwari and Indore Congress President. Amrita Solanki,in-charge of Sarafa Police Station, said, “No permission was taken from the administration to hold this dharna by a total of four people.

For this reason, an FIR has been lodged against Patwari and two other Congress MLAs sitting with him - Vishal Patel and Sanjay Shukla and City Congress President Vinay Bakaliwal. Congress leaders staged a demonstration in front of the historic Rajwada led by Patwari in front of the statue of Goddess Ahilya Bai Holkar, ruler of the former Holkar dynasty of Indore.

During this time, he alleged that the state government has failed to deal with Corona and the public has been left on its condition. In the meantime, a subdivisional magistrate (SDM) has found it costly to kneel before the four Congress leaders and end their protest.

District Magistrate Manish Singh has issued a show cause notice to the SDM asking them why disciplinary steps should not be taken against them? According to eyewitnesses, SDM Rakesh Sharma knelt down and requested the Congress MLAs to end the strike.

He was also repeatedly folding his hands in front of these leaders while talking to them. After the video of the incident went viral on social media, the notice stated, 'The way the SDM talked to the public representatives who were going on strike in Rajwada area without permission, the dignity and conduct of their post as well as the image of administration has been tarnished by this act. Many BJP leaders have also objected to the conduct of SDM.
