Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday urged the people of state to not worry on what will happen, saying “Tiger abhi zinda hai”.
Expressing gratitude towards the people of his constituency – Budhni, Shivraj Singh Chouhan said, “No one needs to worry that what will happen to them. I am still here. Tiger abhi zinda hai.”
He also hinted at an “earlier than expected comeback” to power in the state as the Kamal Nath-led Congress government may not last its full term of five years.
It is to be noted that in the recently concluded assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Congress won 114 seats in the 230-member House. Congress fell two short of the magic number in a contest with the BJP (109) that went down to the wire. However, the Congress ensured the support of 121 MLAs with the Samajwadi Party (1), Bahujan Samaj Party (2) and four Independents backing it.
Shivraj Singh Chouhan, who is known for his witty remarks, at many occasions has used rhyming one-liners, and innuendoes to target his political rivals. During poll campaigning in Madhya Pradesh, Chouhan slammed Congress president Rahul Gandhi by referring to a Bollywood song, “Tum to thehre pardesi saath kya nibhaoge.”
