Gadkari apologises to Scindia

New Delhi, Jul 26 (IANS): | Publish Date: 7/27/2018 12:26:20 AM IST

Union Minister Nitin Gadkari on Thursday apologised to Guna MP Jyotiraditya Scindia in the Lok Sabha after he said he was not invited to an official function in his constituency in Madhya Pradesh and that his name was missing from the plaque. The foundation-laying ceremony of the Rs 3,900-crore Shivpuri-Devas four-lane project was held on July 23.  As the Zero Hour started, Scindia said: “The local MPs should be invited for such programmes as per the protocol. But if the rules would be flouted and local MPs are insulted, then I am moving a privilege motion.”  He said he wanted to move a privilege motion against the Chief Minister (Shivraj Singh Chouhan).

In reply, the Minister for Road Transport and Highways apologised since the function was organised by his Ministry, and admitted that it should not have happened. He also said that he has inquired into the matter and found it to be true. “I am aware of this and since I was present there (at the inauguration), I should be held responsible. The parliamentarian’s name should have been there. This was a mistake. I apologise on behalf of everybody and this will not happen again,” said Gadkari.
