Sheopur (Madhya Pradesh): Normal life in Sheopur has come to a standstill after the rains and flood waters receded. Water logging is still being seen in the low-lying areas of Sheopur.

The laxity of the administration is building blocks of problems on the villagers. Irked by the administration turning blind eye to the dreadful condition of Sheopur amid the flood fury, denizens demonstrated, pelted stones on the vehicles of the administration. Slogans were also raised against collector Rakesh Kumar Srivastava.

A viral video shows some people creating ruckus and pelting stone. The mob even ransacked some vehicles and shops.

Notably, this is not the first time that the administration had to face the brunt of villagers. The CM on Thursday, also faced fury of flood affected people in few areas of Gwalior. Former Congress minister Lakhan Singh Yadav along with 200 supporters blocked the CM's convoy in Silha village of Bhitarwar, Gwalior. The flood-affected villagers continued the protest for about half an hour.
