Sushma mum on controversies in BJP

Swaraj avoided media on the issue of Jaswant Singh and Arun Shourie in Bhopal, where she arrived yesterday, and Vidisha today, her parliamentary constituency. Both Swaraj and Chouhan were in Vidisha to inaugurate the newly constructed Sports Complex in the town built at an estimated cost of Rs 3 crore.

Addressing the function, Swaraj said that it is a fact that sporting talent normally emerges from the rural areas but lack of facilities prevented them from scaling heights. She lauded the state government for spending Rs 22 crore out of the total sports budget of Rs 50 crore in the rural areas.

Chouhan said his government is making all efforts to promote sports and sporting talent in the state, adding that his government has raised the sports budget from Rs four crore to Rs 50 crore in last five years. State's Sports and Tourism Minister Tukojirao Pawar and Finance Minister Raghavji among others were present on the occasion. Chouhan also inaugurated various schemes worth nearly Rs 11 crore aimed at developing infrastructure facilities and promoting tourism in Vidisha.
