Dewas : Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh on Saturday questioned the intention of state government towards Sardar Sarovar Dam (SSD) outstees.
Addressing media persons here in Dewas on Friday, the Congress leader said the state government had failed to resolve the problems of the dam oustees but it submitted a false affidavit in the apex court stating that the problem of PAP is resolved.
Singh also questioned why the state government was in a hurry for displacement of dam outstees. This can be done even next year.
Singh, who was heading towards Barwani via Dewas claimed that, “There are elections in Gujarat next year and therefore, our Chief Minister is working under the pressure of PM in order to please Gujarat”.
He said that he was going to Badwani to take part in the strike organised in the support of displaced people. He said that the main demand of the Congress was to provide shelter and other facilities to the displaced people.
State Congress president Arun Yadav said that the government was cheating on the displaced people. “The Congress is fighting for the affected families. They welcomed Singh and Yadav at Bypass.
