BHOPAL : A farmer consumed poisonous substance at Vidisha collectorate on Saturday in a bid to commit suicide over pending mutation and possession case. He has been referred to Bhopal where he is undergoing treatment in Chirayu Hospital and his condition was said to be still critical.

SDM Ravi Shanka Rai said, “Ramesh Dangi of Purania village had 0.47 hectare land in joint family with seven stack holders. Six of them sold their share to Sunil Dangi who even got mutation of land in May 2017. Now, Ramesh filed appeal in SDM court on August 2, 2017. We even stayed the mutation after registering the case. We called the parties concerned. But on Saturday, Ramesh was present on collectorate premises, consumed poisonous substance. We immediately hospitalised him in local hospital which referred him to Bhopal. Now he is admitted in Chirayu Hospital.”

Leader of Opposition in Assembly Ajay Singh, reacting on this issue, said, “This incident has exposed the government claimed that speedy disposal of revenue cases as farmer of VIP district has consumed poisonous substance.”

Singh said, “Fraudulently, mutation of Ramesh Dangi land was executed in name of others and now land is in possession of others. Even after complaint, no action was taken in the matter. If this is condition in VIP district which MEA Sushama Swaraj represents, and CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan has their agricultural land and godwon, the condition of other districts is very much clear.”
