Bhopal / Gwalior (Madhya Pradesh): Union Civil Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, who was on two-day visit to flood-affected Gwalior-Chambal division on Saturday, said that a four-phase plan had been prepared to provide relief to villagers. A target has been set to complete its three-phase implementation in the next 10 days, he added.

Scindia endorsed the media suggestion for constructing a big dam on the border of Morena-Sheopur to prevent flooding in the region.

Scindia was accompanied by Water Resources Minister Tulsi Silawat and Revenue and Transport Minister Govind Singh Rajput.
