Panna (Madhya Pradesh): Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has taken a jibe at the Congress party over ticket distribution for the state assembly polls saying Congress leader Digvijaya Singh's mill has ground former CM Kamal Nath this time.
CM Chouhan made the remark while talking to the reporters in Madhya Pradesh's Panna district on Friday.
"Currently, mills are running in the Congress party. Kamal Nath used to say that his mill grinds very fine but this time Digvijay Singh's mill ground Nath itself. Nath used to talk about tearing kurtas of Digvijaya Singh and his son Jaivardhan Singh but now Digvijaya Singh is getting Kamal Nath's kurta torn by cancelling the tickets of Kamalnath supporters. Overall, Digvijaya's mill has ground Kamalnath," CM Chouhan said.
