The Congress party on Tuesday raised objection against state chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's picture appearing on packets of Ayurvedic 'karha' being distributed by the state government to prevent spread of corona infection and boost immunity. The government has planned to distribute one crore packets of herbal decoction under Jeevan Amrit Yojana launched by the chief minister on Monday.
Rajya Sabha MP Vivek Tankha tweeted, “Sorry Shivraj ji, your picture on government packets is giving a very wrong message. Doing so with government packets is a punishable offence. Has this happened with your permission? If not, punish the officer involved’”.
The State Congress media president Jitu Patwari was more critical. “By gaining power through hook and crook, chief minister appears starved of campaigning, advertisement has not satisfied him and now he printed his photographs on karha packets,” he tweeted.
The official tweeter handle of MP Congress posted, “Shameless government started campaign on medicine. On one side, Indore is reaching Wuhan like situation and on the other hand Shivraj ji is breaking all records of inhumanity during pandemic. The leader did not even forget to wear matching fashion mask. Where have you sold your morality?”
