Rana flays Digvijay for comments on SSP

SAMLAYA (Near Vadodara): Union textile minister Kashiram Rana came down heavily on Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh for demanding that the height of the Narmada dam be lowered, saying it should have been left to the court.

In an informal chat after addressing a convention of cotton growers on Sunday, Rana said that the BJP in the state was thinking of launching several programmes to protest against Singh's "irresponsible utterances".

Rana said that the fact that Singh had raised this demand in the presence of Gujarat Pradesh Congress leaders CD Patel, Amarsinh Chaudhary, Ahmed Patel and others was a great insult to the state. According to him, these leaders should have snubbed Singh when he started speaking on the SSP. This proved that the state Congress party leaders did not dare oppose Singh.

He said that since the Supreme Court had already permitted Gujarat to raise the dam's height by five meters and the case's hearing was to begin soon, there was no reason for Singh to raise such a demand.
