'Congress Lied To Them'
Taking a jibe at former chief minister and current Congress state chief, Kamal Nath's participation at a backward classes convention, the BJP state president said, "Our OBC brothers and sisters know how the Congress lied to them. They were cheated by the Congress." Also responding to Kamal Nath's statement 'vote for the truth and not me', Sharma said, "The people of Madhya Pradesh know what the truth is." "Every single citizen of Madhya Pradesh is aware of the reality before 2003," he added.
Also taking a dig at the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), the BJP leader said, "Everyone knows how the AAP lied to the people to come to power.
