Tere baap ka kya jaa raha hai: BJP MLA to mandi officials in DamohDesh DeepA ruling party MLA in Damoh has hit headlines for wrong reasons. | TNN | Updated: Apr 29, 2018, 21:30 ISTHata MLA Uma Devi Khatik (video grab)BHOPAL: A ruling party MLA in Damoh has hit headlines for wrong reasons. In a video that has gone viral, the Hata MLA Uma Devi Khatik is heard reprimanding mandi officials for not clearing the farmersâ produce even if it was not up to the mark as per norms. She is heard shouting "Tere baap ka kya jaa raha hai, jo jaaega sarkar ka jaaega" while scolding mandi officials. The MLAâs anger had the desired effect as mandi officials quietly cleared the sample of gram brought by the farmer for sale.
The incident took place on Saturday when Khatik had gone on a visit to the mandi after "complaints" by farmers about irregularities in procurement of gram, masoor and wheat at minimum support price. One of the farmers had told her that the mandi officials were not clearing the gram brought by him for sale. She herself checked the pile of gram and picked up a handful of the produce asking the official to ignore the quality. When she was told that the produce was not according to the standards set by the government, she shouted at him. When she was shouting, she was surrounded by a large number of people, including farmers and mandi staff.
Though repeated attempts to contact the MLA failed, she had admitted to a TV channel that she did talk like this with the mandi officials. âI went to the mandi after complaints from farmers who were being harassed. I scolded the employees and asked them why they were delaying the procurement. I was told that they fail the samples of grains in the day and clear them in the night after taking bribe of Rs 2000. This is the reason why I used those words,â she said. Earlier this month, she had shouted at a group of youths who had questioned her about development works in Damoh. After finding herself in a soup, she had said, âDo whatever you all can do. I am not seeking votes.â Later, she alleged that the youths were âdrunkâ.
