BHOPAL: Leader of Opposition in the MP Assembly Ajay Singh was caught in a row after his mother filed a private complaint at a Bhopal court against her two sons under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act.
In her complaint, Saroj Kumari, 83, who now resides in Greater Noida, said she has no place to live in ever since the death of her husband Arjun Singh in 2011.
Accompanied by daughter Veena Singh, Kumari submitted that she was not being permitted to live in the bungalow once jointly registered in her, husband’s and son Ajay Singh’s name near Kerwa Dam.
After her husband’s death in 2011, the bungalow was transferred to Ajay Singh under provisions of family settlement deed, but Saroj had lifelong right to residence.
In her complaint, she alleged that her sons Ajay Singh and Abhimanyu Singh perpetrated domestic violence against her, ousting her from own house. She added that both her sons have refused to render maintenance to her. The court has summoned the respondents to appear before it on July 19.
But, Ajay Singh alleged the ruling BJP’s hand in the entire episode.
“When we brought a no-confidence motion against the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government in July 2013, BJP made our deputy leader of opposition Choudhary Rakesh Singh Chaturvedi switch sides. A year later when I was contested the general elections, one of our MLAs was made to change sides and now it’s happening again.”
