Chhattarpur: Leader of Opposition in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly, Ajay Singh, on Wednesday alleged that the BJP Government in the state had sent a large number of farmers to jail by implicating them in false power theft cases, while big industrialist were going scot-free.

Ajay, with the party workers, staged a sit-in demonstration at Bada Malhera town on Wednesday on the issue.

On the sixth-day of his Jan Chetna Yatra, he addressed nearly a dozen meetings. At Bijawar, he said, "power theft cases against big industries were established, but not a single industrialist was sent to jail. Instead, they were provided relief, while farmers are put in jails by implicating them in false cases".
