The committee in a meeting today decided to demand stopping of construction work going on near the lake for the court building. It will also approach state govenrment and authorites concerned to protect this heritage, the spokesperson said.

Meanwhile, Congress has already demanded to stop the construction near the lake. Local party MLA Jitu Patwari said party members are daily protesting at the construction to get the work stopped.

He questioned, “When public representatives to common man all are against the construction near the lake then why it has not been stopped yet?”

Lawyers’ bodies are also not in favour of shifting of the court near the lake as currently it is centrally-located at the M G road and is near the Madhya Pradesh High Court.
