Jitu demands removal of check posts
The chief minister should close all the check posts located on highways as they are breeding centres of corruption. “If he really wants to end corruption in the state, he should remove all check posts,” state Congress president Jitu Patwari told mediapersons here on Monday. Extending New Year wishes to new state cabinet, he asked it to clear its stands on paddy procurement.
“CM should stop all the buses running without fitness in the state and tell people about the action taken by the government in the matter. Because in earlier incidents that took place in Sidhi and in Satna, nobody knows what action was taken,” Patwari said in response to a query. He added that new government should think and plan about welfare of youths like offering employment opportunities to them. He demanded better schemes for farmers’ welfare.
