Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has dared Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for a debate over the work done in his and latter’s governance during their respective tenures as chief minister of the poll-bound state.
Addressing a rally here, Singh, who is the former Madhya Pradesh chief minister said, “Again and again, they say ‘Digvijaya Singh’s 10 years and our 15 years’. I challenge Shivraj Singh Chouhan to come on one stage and debate on his 15 years and my 10 years. Aapko saahas ho to aa jaaiye (If you have courage, do come).” Singh further claimed that he was the chief minister of Madhya Pradesh for 10 years during which no corruption allegation was levelled against him.
“I was the Chief Minister for 10 years, no corruption allegation was levelled against me. There wasn’t one case of corruption involving big minister and the Chief Minister during my tenure. When Uma Bharti levelled allegations against me I brought her to court,” Singh added. On November 10, while addressing a rally Chouhan alleged that the poor conditions of roads and erratic electricity and water supplies in the state were not taken care of during the previous Congress government led by Digvijaya Singh. Madhya Pradesh will go to polls on November 28 to elect 230 members of the legislative assembly. The results will be declared on December 11.
