According to a notification issued by the MHA, all factions, wings and front organisations of the Meitei extremist outfits have been banned for a period of five years.
With the assembly election getting closer with each passing day in Madhya Pradesh, the politics over Bajrang Dal seems to be intensifying in the state.
State Home Minister Narottam Mishra has taken a jibe at Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh’s remark about not banning Bajrang Dal in the state and has said that someone’s (Digvijaya Singh) eye flu is getting cured now.
Mishra made the remark while speaking to reporters in the state capital Bhopal on Thursday.
“Nobody can even think of banning Bajrang Dal in Madhya Pradesh. I had also issued a letter on May 3 this year for the same. Someone’s (Digvijaya Singh) eye flu is getting cured now. Some people are looking good to him. In a few days, all the webs of eye flu will be cleared, then after everyone will start looking good.”
“Bajrang Dal is a nationalist organisation, the feeling which has come for a few people now, it will come for everyone later. But now the public has started to understand that you (Singh) are an electoral Hindu”, Mishra said.
Former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh had on Wednesday said that the Bajrang Dal would not be banned if his party is voted to power but cautioned that goons and rioters would not be spared.
Singh made the remark while interacting with the media in Bhopal. When asked about banning Bajrang Dal after the Congress party returns to power in the state, the congress leader said, “We will not ban Bajrang Dal as there can be some good people in Bajrang Dal as well. But we will not spare anyone involved in riots or violence.”
