Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Sunday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over the money spent on plane rides and the ongoing general elections. Amping up his attack, Nath asked whether the wives of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leaders were selling their jewellery to bear the expenses of elections.

“I want to ask Modi Ji, the money spent on his plane rides, on MP assembly election, money that is being spent on ongoing Lok Sabha elections, from where do they get the money? Are the wives of BJP leaders selling their jewellery to bear the expenses of elections?” asked Kamal Nath as he sought answers regarding the saffron party’s funding in the Lok Sabha elections during a press conference.

The MP CM’s comments come days after PM Modi, while addressing a rally in Jabalpur, said that the state of governance had hit an all-time low since Nath came to power.  “In less than six months of Congress coming to power, the state of governance is at an all-time low in Madhya Pradesh. The power situation is bad. Farm loan waiver hasn’t been delivered upon despite being promised. This shows why people must never vote Congress!” PM Modi said on Saturday.

The Prime Minister had further said that the MP CM prioritised vacations over administrative work. “He is a busy man. His priorities include jet-setting to Switzerland immediately after elections, leaving all administrative work, just to establish his own dynasty and of course, corruption. Very sad state of affairs!”, Modi said taking a jibe at Nath.

Nath had earlier questioned PM Modi about the construction of Rs 700 crore BJP office in the national capital. “The Prime Minister should tell the nation who bears the expenses of his plane rides. He should reply from where did he get the money to construct a Rs 700 crore office of BJP in Delhi. He should first give answers to all these and then only he should ask me questions,” he had said.
