On Wednesday, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan mocked Gandhi saying the allegations he leveled against his son Kartikey Chouhan and later issuing a statement stating that he “got confused”, tells that the Congress President doesn’t even know where onions grew. Addressing a rally ahead of Madhya Pradesh Assembly Election 2018, Chouhan took a jibe at Gandhi, saying that the Congress chief is confused.

“Rahul Baba doesn’t even know whether onion grows in the soil or above it. He’s confused, he says my son’s name came up in Panama papers. We are mere farmers, we don’t even know what Panama is. Can confused people like him run a government?” Shivraj Singh Chouhan was quoted as saying by news agency ANI.

Addressing a rally in Chhattisgarh’s Bhillai ahead of the second phase polling in the assembly elections, the Gandhi on Wednesday said, “The day CBI probe begins in Rafale deal, two names will come out, Anil Ambani and Narendra Modi. That’s why Modi removed CBI chief at 2 AM. The truth will come out eventually and the country will know that Modi gifted Ambani Rs 30,000 crore.”

Referring to PM Modi as “Mr 56”, the Congress president alleged that by removing Alok Verma, the PM broke the law when he bypassed Chief Justice of India and Leader of Opposition who were in the panel which selected the CBI chief.
