Sub Divisional Magistrate (SDM) of Sheopur District in Madhya Pradesh has suspended a ‘patwari’ (a government official) for an objection post on former Union minister and BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia. According to reports, patwari Diwan Singh Bajoria, posted in Jaida village of Sheopur District of Madhya Pradesh, had shared several objectionable posts on March 13.
As per the order issued by SDM Rupesh Upadhyay, the posts shared by Bajoria were against the rules of Madhya Pradesh Civil Service.
Taking cognizance of the matter, the SMD suspended patwari with immediate effect.
After the suspension of Bajoria, Patwari Siyaram Jatav of Salapura has been given additional charge of Jaida village.
Earlier, Madhya Pradesh Economic Offences Wing (EOW) closed a case against Scindia – who quit the Congress on March 10 – and his family members. The case relates to the BJP leader and his family where they were accused of falsifying a property document while selling land.
Interestingly, the EOW decided to verify the facts related to case afresh on March 12, when the Congress government was in power in the state.
Following Scindia’s resignation, 22 Congress MLAs belonging to his camp resigned which lead to the collapse of Chief Minister Kamal Nath-led government in the state.
According to sources in the EOW, the case was closed on the Kamal Nath stepped down as chief minister after his government was reduced to a minority.
