'Will make life difficult', BJP MP tells IAS officer

A BJP Lok Sabha member was caught on camera threatening an IAS officer over an 'anti-encroachment' drive in Uttar Pradesh's Barabanki district.
 
''Jeena mushkil kar doongi...ye Barabanki hai,'' (I will make life difficult for you...this is Barabanki), Priyanka Singh Rawat, who represents Barabanki in the Lok Sabha, was heard telling Ajai Kumar Dwivedi, a trainee IAS officer currently posted as sub-divisional magistrate in the district.
 
According to the sources Dwivedi along with a team of the revenue department had gone to Chaila village following complaints that some people had grabbed government land there and had also sowed crops.
 
Sources said that a local BJP leader had encroached upon the government land, which actually belonged to a government school.
 
The local villagers protested the SDM's attempts to remove encroachment from the land and raised anti-government slogans.
 
Rawat, who happened to be passing by, on recieving information reached the spot. She confronted the SDM and sought explanation from him.
 
Sources said that the MP lost her cool and threatened the officer with dire consequences if he did not ''change'' his ''attitude'', when the latter walked toward his vehicle apparently to leave the spot.
 
''Dimag kharab hai tumhara...tameez naam ki cheez nahin hai....abhi training kar rahe ho....apna attitude change kar lo,'' (Have you gone mad.....do you have courtesy....you are undergoing training...change your attitude,'' she was heard telling the SDM on camera.
 
Rawat was also heard telling the official that she would make life difficult for her in the district. All attempts by the SDM to put forth his side of the story to the MP proved futile as she was not ready to listen.
 
Earlier, BJP leaders have publicly threatened government officials. A few months back senior BJP leader and party MLA from Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath's home town of Gorakhpur Radhamohan Das Agarwal had publicly rebuked a lady IPS officer bringing her to tears.
