Scindia asks MP government to allot him Bhopal residence

Congress MP Jyotiraditya Scindia has written to the Madhya Pradesh government to allot him a residence in the state capital to help him in his canvassing for the upcoming Assembly polls.

The Guna MP on Thursday wrote to the state's Principal Secretary: "Frequent travelling between Guna and Bhopal is required for development activities in my constituency.

"However, the to and fro travel is time-consuming and hampers my work. Kindly allot me a residence at the earliest in my capacity as a parliamentarian."

Although Scindia has been elected four times to the Lok Sabha, he had not taken up residence here in the last 16 years.
