BJP leader’s wife quits Twitter over trolls
Stuti Mishra, wife of BJP state chairman and Lok Sabha member VD Sharma, has faced online trolls for her tweet praising a Muslim drug shop owner for his generosity at a time when everyone else stores were closed late at night. Lagging behind the tweet, Stuti, an assistant professor at Jawaharlal University of Agriculture, Jabalpur, not only deleted the tweet but also deactivated her Twitter account later. While Sharma played down the issue, saying she is an independent citizen and the tweet shouldn’t become a big deal, opposition Congress leaders, while calling Bhabhiji (Stuti) “brave”, have said that even she had been targeted by BJP’s “Galigang”. ” due to his heartfelt tweet.

Suspended earlier, prison official gets bigger role
Five and a half years after being suspended for the escape of eight suspected SIMI agents from Bhopal Central Prison, senior prison officer Akhilesh Tomar is not only back in action, but actually overseeing two prisons centers – Jabalpur and Satna. Tomar, who hails from the same region to which Deputy Home and Prison Minister Narottam Mishra belongs, heads the two prisons as a departmental investigation is still ongoing against him. While prison management officials cited the lack of experienced staff as the reason for Tomar’s posting, others lamented that equally experienced staff in other central prisons await his transfer.

No room for dissent in Madhya Pradesh Congress
There seems to be no room for dissent in the opposition Congress in the state. Carrying the Congress flag unflinchingly for the past 30 years, a Bundelkhand People’s Party worker was recently reeling from the shock of his life at the state party headquarters in Bhopal. The laborer who was in his late 50s was telling a scribe about the party debacle in a Prithvipur Assembly indirect vote last year. But to his surprise, a party spokesman, considered close to state Congress leader Kamal Nath, not only publicly humiliated the worker, but also asked him to leave the party if he wanted to. . With tears in his eyes, the party worker was seen outside saying ‘this is why Congress is in the way it is’.
