Indore (Madhya Pradesh): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Kailash Vijayvargiya on Tuesday took on former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Kamal Nath for his remark that the people of MP will bid adieu to CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan saying perhaps he (Nath) does not know the reality.
Speaking to media, Vijayvargiya said, "Perhaps he (Nath) does not know the reality. The people of the state are with the BJP. They are with the BJP's development, with women empowerment, with schemes to provide employment to the youth and with the programs of poor welfare in the state." "That is why the people of Madhya Pradesh have always been with the BJP and CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the last 20 years. Therefore, it is a misunderstanding on the part of Kamal Nath, it will be cleared soon," he added.
Nath took a jibe at CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan
Earlier today, Nath took a jibe at CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan saying that the public of the state would soon bid adieu to CM Chouhan, who had destroyed the state in the last 18 years.
"Now the time has come when the machine of lies and announcements is going to be shut. The people of Madhya Pradesh will bid adieu to Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who made MP a 'Chaupat Pradesh' in the last 18 years. There is no doubt that the people of Madhya Pradesh are suffering and every section is unhappy. The Bharatiya Janata Party and CM Chouhan have also realised this," Nath told media.
