The citizens of Ujjain, Madhya Pradesh celebrated the first Kartik Sawari of Lord Mahakal on November 9th with much enthusiasm and fervor. The Devotees took the Lord's idol out in a procession led by a Palki. The procession was accompanied by traditional musical instruments and melodious chanting of mantras.
At the same time, a heated issue has recently taken a new turn in Ujjain. The Indore bench of Madhya Pradesh High Court has issued a contempt notice to the administration officials for constructing a government medical college complex on the land of Government Ujjain Engineering College. The Sangharsh Committee, which is opposing the opening of the medical college on the land of the Engineering College, has confirmed this.
CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan had done an e-bhoomi puja for the same on October 5, but the High Court’s stay order has put a halt to the construction process. Not even a single brick has been laid.
The Alumni Association of the Engineering College presented documents before the High Court and the court has now issued a notice, seeking clarifications from the officials. The Division Bench had also issued an order of status quo on the state government’s decision to allot the land of UEC for the Medical College.
The issue is that the land of the UEC was allotted to the medical college, while the land already had more than 20,000 trees planted on it. It is also against the rules to allot 23 acres of land for the construction of the medical college, as the provision is for only 25 acres.
The citizens of Ujjain are now waiting for the High Court’s decision on the matter. Until then, the construction process of the medical college will remain on hold.
