Sushma Swaraj's statue to be installed in Vidisha

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday announced that a statue of former Union minister Sushma Swaraj will be installed in Vidisha, the Lok Sabha constituency represented by her.

On the occasion of Swaraj's birth anniversary on Sunday, Chouhan paid tribute to the late BJP leader at his residence here in the presence of some state ministers and senior party leaders.

"Swaraj's contribution to the development of Vidisha is incomparable. A statue of Swaraj would be installed at the Town Hall in Vidisha," Chouhan said while paying tribute to the former external affairs minister.

Swaraj won from Vidisha, located about 58 km from Bhopal, in the 2009 and 2014 Lok Sabha polls.
