Madhya Pradesh GovernmentMadhya Pradesh, June 07, 2013: A delegation of Rastriya Secular Manch today met President Mr. Pranab Mukherjee to apprise him of the state of affairs in the state. The delegation handed over a memorandum to the President. Memorandum pointed out that the BJP government of the state, during its rule for the last nine years, has taken such steps which amount to subversion of secular democracy. The state government has taken a policy decision to allow the state government employees to participate in the activities of the RSS.

Besides this, financial resources of the state are being used to patronise one particular religion (Hindu). Most of the developmental activities are named after Hindu rituals and gods and goddesses. The state government has introduced a scheme under which senior citizens are taken to places of pilgrimage. The government hires special trains and bears the entire expenditure of the pilgrims. When the delegation informed the President that the State Government has decided to build Sita temple in Sri Lanka the President came out with a comment “in a foreign country”.

The memorandum further pointed out that Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister has repeatedly announced that under no circumstances he will implement the recommendations of the Sacchar Committee, as, in his view, the implementation of the Sacchar Committee recommendations will culminate in another partition of the country. There are many more instances which go to prove that the state government is not functioning as per the provisions of the Constitution.
