BJP made the Madhya Pradesh a 'corruption state'
Meanwhile, the Congress leader hit out at the ruling BJP alleging that it has made the Madhya Pradesh a 'corruption state'. "Entrepreneurs are not willing to invest in Madhya Pradesh because of corruption. When I was CM, I spoke to several businessmen and what they replied was shocking to me. Entrepreneurs said they do not trust on Madhya Pradesh government, which is why they do not want to invest here," he added.
Earlier, Kamal Nath served as commerce minister
Kamal Nath, who has long experience of running businesses and also served as commerce minister earlier, said, "Business won't come from demand, but we have to attract the entrepreneurs. And for attracting for business, we have to make a business-friendly situation in Madhya Pradesh."
