Land mafias attend investors' meet to grab govt land: Cong

Press Trust of India  |  Indore 

Days ahead of Global Investors' Summit (GIS) to be held here, opposition today alleged that land mafias attend such events under the guise of investors to grab government land at subsidised rates.

"In the guise of investors, members of land mafias come solely to grab government lands at low prices in such summits," unit chief Arun Yadav told reporters here.



Global Investors Summit or GIS is a biennial event organised by government in state's commercial capital at Indore. The two-day event will be held on October 22-23.

"The state government should come out with details of the investments and the number of employment generated by conducting GIS earlier, in which crores of rupees were spent," Yadav demanded.

He also accused the government of adopting "double standards" on Chinese goods.

"On one hand, the leaders are doing a 'nautanki' (drama) by protesting against Chinese products, while on the other, the ruling government is rolling out a red carpet to Chinese investors at GIS," Yadav claimed.

He said the government machinery was being "misused" and officers transferred in the view of upcoming bypoll to Shahdol Lok Sabha seat in Madhya Pradesh.

The bylection, whose schedule is yet to be announced, is necessitated due to demise of sitting MP Dalpat Singh Paraste.
