Criminal case against Congress MP for inaugurating med college before CM

Congress parliamentarian Kantilal Bhuria has courted trouble after inaugurating a government medical college in Ratlam, a day before Madhya Pradesh P chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was scheduled to launch it.

In what is largely viewed as stunt before upcoming state elections, Bhuria reached the Govt medical college along with a handful of supporters, a priest and carried out  a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday.

Taking credit for the project he told reporters later “Since Tuesday is an auspicious day, I inaugurated the college as the project had been approved during the UPA(United Progressive Alliance) govt.”

Bhuria, a former Union minister, represents the Ratlam Jhaba Lok Sabha seat.

On learning of the mess-up, officials rushed to spot and police personnel were stationed around the building.

The state administration also tackled the MP legally charging him  under sec 144 of CRPC(prohibiting assembly of more than four people in the area and IPC sections 188(disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant), 448 (punishment for house-trespass).

15 others who accompanied him were also taken into the fold. The indiction comes based on a complaint submitted by college administration, the Superintendent of police Gaurav Tiwari said.

CM Chouhan formally inaugurated the medical college next day  and buttressed his upmanship saying  “After 1964, no medical college has come up in the state. But on becoming chief minister, we decided to set one in Sagar and five year back in Ratlam,” he said at the inauguration ceremony.

Assembly elections in the state are due in 3 months time.
