Newly appointed Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Mohan Yadav has sanctioned the demolition of property belonging to an opposition party member accused of violence.

Why did CM Mohan Yadav order bulldozer action against man? 

Farukh Rain, known as Minni, allegedly led a brutal attack on BJP worker Devendra Thakur last week on December 3 alongside three other named suspects - Aslam, Shahrukh, Bilal, and Sameer. The incident occurred post-state election results amid political tensions.

According to the reports, Thakur's hand was severed with sharp weapons due to rivalry within the constituency. He was hospitalised in critical condition as senior BJP figures, including Kailash Vijayvargiy, visited him.

With emotions running high, CM Yadav channelled the controversial policy of his predecessor by ordering bulldozers to Rain's residence.

The move serves as an uncompromising statement just days into Yadav's administration after December's thumping BJP state victory. The party secured over 70% of assembly seats to reclaim power from Congress after twenty years.

What is motive of Madhya Pradesh government behind demolition?

As the victim recovers from this assault, the stern action against the accused signals that violence against elected representatives will not be tolerated under the new BJP leadership.

The cocktail of post-poll score-settling and punitive demolition now presents an early test for the freshly minted Chief Minister.
