Controversy over killing of youth: MP minister quits
Bhopal, Jul 2 (PTI) Madhya Pradesh Health Minister Anoop Mishra today resigned in the wake of allegations that some of his close relatives were involved in the killing of a youth over a land dispute.
He has submitted his resignation to the state Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, state BJP President Prabhat Jha told PTI.
He said that Mishra, by giving his resignation, has upheld the highest moral values in politics.
Mishra’s name figured in a controversy a few days ago, when a 17-year-old youth was killed in Bela village on the outskirts of his home town Gwalior following a dispute over the construction of a boundary wall for a college run by his wife.
“Mishra’s resignation proves that BJP does not indulge in idle talk and does what it says,” Jha said.
