Nitin Gadkari's Apology To Jyotiraditya Scindia After Highway Project Faux Pas

New Delhi: Today, the Union Minister Nitin Gadkari apologised to Jyotiraditya Scindia in the Lok Sabha . His apologies came after the Congress MP raised the matter of the Madhya Pradesh government dropping his name from a plaque and invitations that were meant for inauguration of a highway in his Guna constituency.

Right after the start of Zero Hour, Mr Scindia said the state government did not invite him for the inauguration of the highway, even the plaque that carried his name was changed by the state government.

Mr Scindia said that local MPs should be invited to such programmes and "I want to move a privilege motion" against the state chief minister.

The Roads and Highways Minister reverted to this and said he was aware of the matter and it should not have happened.

"As I was present there, I should be responsible for this. MPs name should have been there. I apologise on behalf of everybody and next time it will not happen," Mr Gadkari said.

 Sumitra Mahajan,the Lok Sabha speaker said, "Should I use a baton to provide protection (sanrakshan lathh leke dun)," as he repeatedly raised the demand.

The speaker added that it was Mr Gadkari's greatness that he has tendered an apology on the matter.

Mallikarjun Kharge,the senior Congress leader too said that MPs should be not be treated like this. "This is not good".

Narendra Singh Tomar, the Union Minister  said issue should not be politicised as a senior minister has already apologised.

He said that Bhartiya Janata Party MPs were not invited to such events during the UPA regime.
