Ujjain (Madhya Pradesh): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday targeted Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) Chief Kamal Nath for not implementing the promises made during the Congress-led government that was in power for 15 months and said, "Congress again started making false promises..."
"The Congress did not fulfill even a single promise made in the promissory note. Now, I will continuously ask Kamal Nath ji about those promises," he told media persons in Ujjain.
"Today, I will let you know one of those promises, Nath had named many crops, including wheat, gram, mustard, rice and said that he would give a bonus. Has Kamal Nath given the bonus to even a single person in the last one and quarter years? After all, even a lie has its limits. My process of asking questions to him will begin now," the Chief Minister added.
Notably, twenty-two rebel Congress MLAs, whose resignations from the Madhya Pradesh Assembly, owing allegiance to BJP leader and former Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia led to the fall of the Kamal Nath government in March 2020.
