Member of Parliament from Rajasthan Devji Patel today made a forceful plea in the Lok Sabha for bringing out a master Plan for the famous hill town of Mount Abu, saying that people had been stopped from constructing houses since 1982 in the absence of a Plan. Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Mr Patel said by not allowing people to build new houses, the government was doing great injustice to people who were living there and also to those who were coming to the place as tourists as there was a great shortage of accommodation for them. He urged the Centre to take immediate steps to rectify this situation. Bidyut Baran Mahato of the BJP from Jharkhand drew the government’s attention to the human trafficking involving children and women from the state. He said as many 30,000 women fell victim to trafficking every year in the state. Bhairon Prasad Mishra from Bundelkhand region of the state demanded immediate Central attention to the drought in his constituency Banda. Ravindra Kumar Ray of the same party from Jharkhand wanted the Centre to call for a report from the state in view of what he called the grave law and order situation there.
