Chhattisgarh Minister Brijmohan Agrawal’s wife Sarita Agrawal and their son have bought 4.12 hectares of government-owned forest land and are building a resort on it. Indian Express reported that the BJP leader’s Agriculture Ministry deems it impossible to take any action against them. Agrawal is a former MLA of Raipur and is currently the Minister of Agriculture, Water Resources and Religious Trusts and Endowments. Sarita Agrawal bought the land in September 2009 when he was the Minister for School Education, Public Works Department, Parliamentary Affairs, Tourism and Culture, according to IE.

Build in Sirpur in the Mahasamund district, the Shyam Vatika resort surrounds the site of Buddhist excavations. The area is a potential tourist destination, according to Agarwal’s Ministry. Sarita Agarwal and her son Abhishek Agarwal are directors of Aditya Srijan Private Limited. Abhishek Agarwal is the director of Purbasa Vanijya Private Limited. Both the companies have acquired land for the project.

In March 2015, Lalit Chandranahu of the Kisan Mazdoor Sangh of Mahasamund district brought the discrepancy in land ownership to Mahasamund Collector Umesh Kumar Agrawal and the then Raipur Commissioner Ashok Agarwal. Chandranahu said that the plot was not shown as government-owned in revenue records, IE reported. In August 2016, he complained that the land was bought by the Minister’s wife.

In December 2016, a complaint went to the Prime Minister’s Office stating, “Respected Modiji, look at the irony, some influential people have now usurped government land in their name, This has been done in a complete violation of all norms and government directions, because as you know, there is a set procedure for distribution of government land and without the state Cabinet’s approval this cannot be distributed.”

So far, the Forest Department has written to the Water Resources Department to change the revenue records considering the land was forest land. However, Brij Mohan Agarwal responded that the land has been sold to Sarita Agarwal, therefore, no action can be taken against her. In June this year, the Collector has again written to the Forest and Water Resources departments.

    रायपुर दक्षिण की विधायक एवं छत्तीसगढ़ शासन की कृषि सिंचाई मंत्री बृजमोहन अग्रवाल ने आज चंगोराभाठा स्थित महादेवा तालाब के पास 43 लाख की लागत से बने जिम बिल्डिंग, चंगोरा भाठा मे ही 5-5 लाख की लागत से बने ब्राह्मण समाज व् देवांगन समाज भवन का लोकार्पण किया। इस लोकार्पण समारोह में उपस्थित नागरिकों को संबोधित करते हुए उन्होंने कहा कि सड़क पानी बिजली जैसी मूल सुविधाएं शहर की जनता तक पहुंच गई है। अब जनता की सेहत बेहतर हो इस दिशा में भी हम ध्यान दे रहे हैं। हमारा मानना है कि जनता की सेहत अच्छी रहेगी तो वह अच्छे मन- मस्तिष्क के साथ काम कर सकेगा। जनता की अच्छी सेहत देश की समृद्धि के लिये आवश्यक है। इसी तारतम्य में शहर के वार्डों में शासन द्वारा जिम का खोला जा रहा है। प्राइवेट जिमों में हजारों रुपए फीस ली जाती है। परंतु शासन के इस जिम में नाम मात्र फीस पर जनता आधुनिक व्यायाम उपकरणों का उपयोग कर व्यायाम कर सकती है। यहां की जिम में जितने उपकरण है उतने महंगी फीस वाले जिमों में भी नहीं है।

      रायपुर/ 2 नवंबर 2017/ छत्तीसगढ़ प्रदेश के कृषि एवं सिंचाई मंत्री बृजमोहन अग्रवाल ने आज शासन की सरस्वती सायकल योजना के तहत स्थानीय जे. आर. दानी स्कूल की 350 छात्राओं को साईकल का वितरण किया। स्कुल परिसर में आयोजित इस समारोह के दौरान श्री अग्रवाल ने स्वयं साईकल चलाकर शाला परिसर का भ्रमण किया। इस अवसर पर अपने उद्बोधन में बृजमोहन अग्रवाल ने कहा कि बेटिया दो-दो कुल को तारती है। इसलिए बेटियों का ध्यान, उनकी शिक्षा उनकी दीक्षा सबसे महत्वपूर्ण है। हमारी सरकार बेटियों की शिक्षा और उन के सर्वांगीण विकास के लिए कृतसंकल्पित है। हमारी योजनाएं इस बात को प्रमाणित भी करती है। हर 5 किलोमीटर में हाई स्कूल तथा 7 किलोमीटर में हायर सेकेंडरी स्कूल है। ऐसे में बेटियों के घर से बाहर दूर शिक्षा ग्रहण करने जाना मुश्किल होता था। सरकार ने परिवार की इस तकलीफ को समझ कर सरस्वती सायकल योजना का शुभारंभ किया था। इस योजना का सकारात्मक परिणाम हमें मिला है। शिक्षा के क्षेत्र में लड़कियां लड़कों से आगे दिख रही है और छत्तीसगढ़ का नाम रौशन कर रही है।

                This sort of unscrupulous element we will always find in our society. They are least bothered to amass wealth by misusing their official positions. Ministers while they are in the position, their third eyes are always active for doing something for their families as they know today if they don't do anything for creating wealth for their next kith and kin, such opportunity will not be available when they are out of power. Therefore the minister who is in allegations of corruptions should be taken to task by demanding explanation in writing that will come from the chief minister to clear his stand and on unsatisfactory reply the minister in question should be dismissed and enquiry will start to reach its logical conclusion,

                  While I am not against BJP (having got vexed with the Congress' regime), unfortunately, the events of these type will definitely start bringing bad name to BJP and its leadership. As a common man I am equally worried that unless such events are stemmed at the bud, across the nation, some issue or the other will start cropping up - ultimately making us feel BJP is no inferior to Congress in the number game of scams !! I hope and am sure, Mr Modi, and his powerful coterie will monitor the goings-on, and initiate actions. As for me, I have a serious complaint on the working of the Union Ministry of Telecom, where I have been regularly reminding them to prevail upon Airtel to refund my very long-pending huge refund. Strangely, when the complaint is against a Corporate, even the Ministry is terrified. Respected PM ji, please note Corporates will not support you, it is only the common man and the voter who are to be trusted and taken into confidence.
