Baghel govt of scams and mafias, says Thakur – The Indian Express

Union Minister Anurag Thakur on Friday said incidents of Maoist violence have declined by 52% in Chhattisgarh under the Narendra Modi government at the Centre.
Addressing a rally here, the Union Information and Broadcasting minister also said the Congress dispensation under Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel in the state was a “government of scams and mafias”.
Assembly polls will be held in Chhattisgarh in two phases on November 7 and 17, while votes will be counted on December 3.
Thakur’s rally was held after former state minister Mahesh Gagda filed his nomination papers from Bijapur (ST) seat, where polls will be held in the first phase.
“In Chhattisgarh, incidents of Naxalite violence have declined by 52 percent during Modi ji’s government. The Modi government has taken several steps for development of Bastar region,” he said.
Accusing the Baghel government of corruption, Thakur said people of Chhattisgarh are fed up with “Bhu-pay”, a term coined by the BJP as a play on the name Bhupesh Baghel and a digital payment system.
