'Dantewada Attack A Political Conspiracy,' Says Amit Shah, Seeks CBI Probe

Rajnandgaon: BJP President Amit Shah on Friday claimed that a “political conspiracy” was behind the death of Dantewada BJP MLA Bhima Mandavi, who was killed in a Maoist ambush in Chhattisgarh on Wednesday. Four other security personnel were also killed in the attack, which has been claimed by the banned Communist Party of India (Maoist).

Seeking a CBI probe into the killing, Shah said that Mandavi’s wife has also demanded an investigation by the central agency. Shah was addressing an election rally in Dongargaon in Rajnandgaon in the state.

Shah also accused the Congress government of doing nothing for people during 55 years in power. During the Congress rule, terrorists would behead the country’s jawans and the government would do nothing, he claimed.

But the current government led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi had offered a befitting reply after the February 14 Pulwama suicide bombing in which 40 CRPF jawans lost their lives.

Shah also labelled the “mahagathbandhan” (grand alliance) a “mahathagbandhan” an (alliance of crooks).
