Missing MLA returns; claims he will be made min before Holi

In yet another twist in the ongoing political drama in Madhya Pradesh, ‘missing’ independent MLA Surendra Singh Shera returned to Bhopal on Saturday, making a cryptic announcement that he would be a minister in the Kamal Nath cabinet before Holi on March 10.

Shera returned to the state after having spent four days in Bengaluru, which he claimed was a personal visit.

Three other MLAs -- Hardeep Singh Dang, Raghuraj Kansana and Bisahulal Singh -- have been missing from the state, with the ruling Congress alleging that the BJP “abducted” them and took them to Karnataka. The latter has refuted the claim.

Speaking to reporters at the airport, Shera denied that he had been abducted and refuted reports of an alleged turmoil in the Kamal Nath government.

He arrived at the Raja Bhoj Airport from New Delhi and was received by the state’s Public Relations minister PC Sharma.

Though he refuted claims of being abducted, Shera had, in a video message on Friday, alleged that he was stopped by unidentified men twice on his way to the airport which eventually led him to miss his flight scheduled for the day.

Earlier, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh had alleged that BJP leaders forcibly took Shera and the other three MLAs to Bengaluru as a part of their horse-trading attempts.

The remaining three MLAs have been untraceable ever since they went missing and no reports of them having specified their stance in any way have come front.
