'Give homeless, poor a place in your house', say protesters at Shivraj Chouhan's house
BHOPAL: Several poor and destitute persons including women and children sat near the residence of former chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan in Bhopal, demanding that they should be allowed to stay within the expansive campus of his house.
They sat on the road in front of the bungalow, saying that they should be let in as they don't have a permanent house or roof on their head. This protest took place on Monday.
Amid presence of security personnel, the people sat holding placards at the spot. This was part of a protest by a NCP leader in Bhopal, who wanted to highlight dual policies of the BJP.
"First, they should start from their own house. They are unable to even get 40-50 persons stay in their huge bungalows but want people from other countries to arrive and live here", said Raju Bhatnagar, an NCP leader. He said that the BJP leaders' stand was contradictory as rather than solving situation within own country and ensure house-jobs for the citizens, they are discriminating with our own and inviting people from other countries.
