THE DISTRICT administration has imposed an immediate ban on unauthorised entry into the Bhaura power sub-station premises after protest by the Congress over alleged overlooking of local MP Jyotiraditya Scindia in a programme during the CM’s proposed visit to Guna district.
Bamori block Congress president Viththaldas Meena said the power sub-station at Bhaura village was constructed at a cost of nearly Rs 8.5 crore with the assistance of Asian Development Bank (ADB). The plan for construction was developed by MP Jyotiraditya Scindia during the then Congress regime.
After all the formalities with the Centre were completed and when the final approval for the construction of the sub-station was obtained in October 2004 from ADB, the Congress had formed its government at the Centre. This makes clear the contributions made by Scindia and Congress governments towards the sub-station’s construction, he added.
Meena further said several demonstrations led by Scindia were organised last month by Bamori block Congress to press for the demand for starting the sub-station soon. He urged Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to invite local MP Jyotiraditya Scindia on the occasion of the dedication of Bhaura sub-station to keep up the tradition followed in the region.
