If the Chief Minister can work from the hospital, why not others, the High Court asked questions

A hearing was held in Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court on Monday through video conferencing for construction of a jail building which has been lying incomplete on Saver Road near Indore. Principal Secretary (Home) Dr. Rajesh Rajaura and Principal Secretary (Finance) Manoj Govil told the court that the work will be started as soon as permission is received from the High Power Committee. The court gave four weeks, but on the last hearing, the absence of key secretaries said that when the Chief Minister can work from the hospital then why not others. Significantly, the Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan continued to work from the hospital despite being infected by Corona in the past. In 2002, the government allotted 50 acres of land on Saver Road to the Jail Department for construction of the new jail. The jail department had contracted with the Madhya Pradesh Housing Board for the construction. The work was halted after spending around Rs 18 crore on construction. Since then, this work has been incomplete. The construction that was done is also dilapidated. Advocate Abhijeet Yadav has filed a PIL in the High Court seeking an order to complete the unfinished business.
