Nainital: The Uttarakhand high court on Wednesday served a notice to Haridwar MLA and state Bharatiya Janata Party chief, Madan Kaushik, during the hearing of a petition accusing him of corruption in the construction of 16 libraries in Haridwar. The minister has been given four weeks to respond to the notice when the case will next be heard.
The libraries were to be built by rural engineering services.
