Congress and BJP butt heads over Narmada canal construction
The Congress and BJP quibbled yet again in the assembly, this time, over unfinished work on the Narmada canal. Congress MLA Brijesh Merja from Morbi said that despite tall claims of the government that Narmada water would be released, Morbi taluka was yet to see any results. Parmar also questioned as to why despite poor quality of construction no action was taken against any of the concerned agencies. Deputy chief minister Nitin Patel asked Congress MLAs to not spread lies after Lathi MLA Virji Thummar alleged that work on the Narmada canal had been pending for over 25 years. Thummar also alleged that the BJP was taking credit for work done by the Congress.
