Indore (MP): Videos of furious delegates speaking about the mismanagement by the Madhya Pradesh Government at the 17th NRI Meet are doing the rounds on social media platforms. The G20 17th NRI Meet was organized at Indore with Prime Minister Narendra Modi visiting the event on Monday.
In a video that is widely being shared on Twitter, a delegate from Jamaica, Prashant Singh can be seen lamenting at the Madhya Pradesh Government adding that the government led by CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan cannot manage a crowd of 3000 people while the country aims to be a global power.
“Delegates including Ministers from Jamaica have come for the NRI Meet. The arrangements of the Indian government are so pathetic that CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan should be fired.” He said in the video.
“This guy (Shivraj Singh Chouhan) cannot manage a crowd of 3000 people then how can we become a global power? This is utterly shameful. All the reputation that we will build by our hard work, this guy has taken it down in a second.” Singh further said in the video.
Similar videos of women speaking about how they were made to wait for hours and then asked to sit out as the sitting facility was utilized completely are also doing rounds. In the video, the women expressed their anguish that even after registering for the event and despite being invited guests for PM Modi’s interaction, they were asked to sit outside the designated hall citing overcrowding.

New Delhi (PTI): The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to consider individual cases seeking acceptance of demonetised currency notes of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 denominations.
A bench comprising BR Gavai and Vikram Nath, however, allowed the individual petitioners to approach the government with a representation.
The top court directed the government to decide the representation and consider the individual grievances, if made, within a period of 12 weeks.
"After the judgement of the constitution bench, we do not find it will be permissible for us to exercise our jurisdiction under Article 142 of the Constitution in individual cases to accept demonetised currency notes," the bench said.
It also clarified that in the event any of the petitioners are not satisfied with the action by the Union of India, they would be at liberty to approach the high court concerned.
In a majority verdict, the top court had upheld the government's 2016 decision to demonetise the currency notes of Rs 1,000 and Rs 500 denominations.
A five-judge Constitution bench had said the Centre's decision-making process could not have been flawed as there was consultation between the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) and the Union government.
The court had said the notification dated November 8, 2016, which announced the decision to scrap the high-value currency notes, cannot be said to be unreasonable and struck down on the ground of decision-making process.
