Bhopal: Congress workers from Madhya Pradesh sent eye drops, Chyawanprash and almonds to former chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday, hoping these would do good for his poor eyesight and dull memory.
They said, “He lies about farm loan waiver and state government’s other decisions. We wanted him to know the reality but it seems his eyesight and memory has weakened. We’re sending this to cure him.”
This act of Congress workers’ comes in the backdrop of Senior Congress leader Suresh Pachouri dumping bundles of documents at Chouhan’s residence as proof that Congress waived off loans of 21 lakh farmers after coming to power in the state in December last year.
However, Chouhan refuted the Congress’ claims and termed it as ‘bundle of lies’. Chouhan hit back by saying, “Ever since Congress has come to power, electricity has gone. Digvijaya Singh had turned Madhya Pradesh into a state of darkness and that era is coming back. ‘Lalten’ is the symbol of the era of darkness, that is why we’re doing this march to raise awareness among the public.”
Former Union minister Pachouri along with state minister PC Sharma and other Congress leaders had brought cartons of documents in two vehicles on Tuesday. They then put the cartons on their heads and walked to the former chief minister’s official residence where they dumped the documents.
Thereafter, the Congress claimed that these documents proved that the Kamal Nath-led government in MP acted on the party’s pre-poll promise of waiving off farm loans. After the Congress leaders left, the former chief minister rejected the documentary evidence, terming it a bundle of lies.
