MP Assembly polls: Shivraj Singh Chouhan blames Congress for destruction of state
Just two days ahead of Madhya Pradesh Assembly polls, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan launched a scathing attack on the Congress and said that it is the only party, which is responsible for the destruction of the state and is now maligning him because he developed the state.
Notably, CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan addressed as many as six election in the state on Sunday. Addressing a rally in Khandwa, CM Chouhan said, “It is Congress party which is responsible for the destruction of Madhya Pradesh. Congress is now running a campaign that there is anger. I want to ask people if they are angry with me. It is not people but the Congress which is furious.”
“They are furious because they gave me potholed roads and I constructed 1.5 lakh km of excellent roads and gave it to the public. Congress is furious because they plunged Madhya Pradesh in darkness and we provided excellent power supply to the public. They are worried and hence making allegations,” he added.
CM Chouhan further added that the Congress is not able to tolerate that the son of a farmer is sitting on the chair of the chief minister for last 15 years.
Addressing a huge public rally in Ujjain, the Chief Minister said, “Congress, since the time of Indira Gandhi, has been saying that they will remove poverty but did not do anything. I assure you that by the year 2022, no poor person will live in a mud house and we will provide affordable housing for all.”
At another rally at Dewas, the CM attracted the youth as he promised to bear the higher education costs of students and provide two-wheelers to girls who achieve good results.
“My government is resolved to bear the higher education expenses of students of the state who score good marks. The daughters of this state who get 75 per cent marks in the 12th standard will be provided with a scooty by the government,” CM Chouhan noted.
The elections for 230-member Madhya Pradesh assembly will be held in the single phase on 28th of this month. The results will be declared on December 11.
Importantly, the BJP is facing a stiff challenge at the hands of the Opposition Congress in the Assembly elections. CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who has been ruling the state for the last 15 years, is battling with anti-incumbency and farmers’ anger to retain power.
