Ratlam: A case has been registered against Congress MP Kantilal Bhuria for ‘inaugurating’ a government medical college a day before Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was scheduled to launch it.
Reportedly, Bhuria, a former Union minister who represents the Ratlam-Jhabua Lok Sabha seat reached the Government Medical College at Banjali in Ratlam along with his supporters and a priest and held a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday.
“Since Tuesday is an auspicious day, I inaugurated the college as the project had been approved during the UPA government,” he told reporters after the event.
After the district administration was alerted about it, officials were rushed to the spot and police personnel were deployed there.
“A case under section 144 of CrPC (prohibiting assembly of more than four people in an area) and IPC sections 188 (disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant) 448 (punishment for house-trespass) was registered against Bhuria and 15 others based on a complaint given by the college administration in this regard,” Ratlam Superintendent of Police (SP) Gaurav Tiwari said.
On Wednesday, Chouhan formally inaugurated the medical college building that has been constructed at a cost of Rs 350 crore.
“It is a big gift to the Ujjain division and will set an example in the area of medical education,” he said at an inauguration ceremony.
