Unhappy with the district administration’s order to auction 8040 quintals of sugar seized in raids here, the sugar merchants have decided to move the court against it.

The district administration had recently issued an order for auctioning 8040 quintals of sugar seized during August 13 raids on September 24- 25.

“We are going to challenge the order of the district administration to auction the sweetner,” Madhya Pradesh Sugar Merchants Federation President Ramesh Khandelwal told PTI.

He said a Bhopal-based trader whose sugar had been seized here had already petitioned a court in Indore.

Khandelwal said sugar traders would meet in Bhopal on September 20 to consider the situation arising out of the government order.

Cracking the whip on hoarders and blackmarketeers across the state, the authorities have seized huge quantities of sugar during the raids going on for well over a month after its price skyrocketed.

The government had issued a sugar control order about two months ago limited the storage period of the commodity to a month.

Deshmukh said 18,08,021 voters are entitled to exercise their franchise in the seven constituencies of whom 9,37,212 are male and 8,70,809 are female voters.


There is an increase of 1.4 percent in the number of voters this time compared to the Assembly election in 2004. There are 2,175 polling stations across the district besides 10 auxiliary polling stations of which 15 have been identified as sensitive.


Proposal to change the location of a few polling stations in village Pahur of Babhulgaon tehsils is pending before the Election Commission and the sanction is expected in a day or two, he added.


In all 250 video-graphers have been appointed to shoot all the events in the seven constituencies and they will be at work for 24 hours at the sensitive areas and polling stations.
