BHOPAL : Arun Kumar Tiwari, whose appointment has been cancelled, was appointed as a daily wager during the regime of Chief Minister Sunderlal Patwa. Mansukhlal whose petition led to removal of Tiwari, was the person who got the latter appointed as daily wager in Nagar Panchayat, Mauganj.
During Congress regime in 1993, the relations between Tiwari and Mansukhlal became bitter and he was removed from Nagar Panchayat. According to Mansukhlal, Tiwari manipulated his documents and got his services merged in Local Government Department. Mansukhlal claimed that Tiwari’s merger was cancelled by the High Court in 1995.
Despite High Court’s order, Tiwari continued working as daily wager in Local Government Department and former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh got him merged in Water Resources Department.
Tiwari’s wife, Manjulata Tiwari is a Congress leader in Rewa. She was former District Panchayat President and that is why former Speaker Shrinivas Tiwari got manipulations done, alleged Mansukhlal.
