The Asian Age - - Nation - NATH CHOUD­HURY

Dis­sen­sion among mi­nor­ity com­mu­nity lead­ers in rul­ing Con­gress in Mad­hya Pradesh over use of Na­tional Se­cu­rity Act ( NSA) against three youths ar­rested in con­nec­tion with a cow slaugh­ter in­ci­dent in Khandwa in the state has come to the fore with a party MLA shoot­ing down a let­ter to chief min­is­ter Ka­mal Nath voic­ing his con­cern over the de­vel­op­ment.

In a let­ter to the chief min­is­ter on Sun­day, Con­gress MLA Arif Ma­sood de­scribed the ac­tion by the lo­cal ad­min­is­tra­tion to in­voke NSA against the three ac­cused as ar­bi­trary and de­manded im­me­di­ate trans­fer of the Khandwa dis­trict col­lec­tor for it.

He re­gret­ted that the lo­cal dis­trict ad­min­is­tra­tion had slapped NSA against the three ac­cused with­out lis­ten­ing to their ver­sions of the in­ci­dent. He also de­manded ac­tion against cow vig­i­lantes.

The AICC has made it clear that the party was not go­ing to in­ter­fere in gov­er­nance in MP, par­tic­u­larly on the is­sue over use of NSA by the Ka­mal Nath govern­ment against the crim­i­nals.
