Bhopal (MP): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Wednesday took a swipe at Rahul Gandhi’s allegations against his son Kartikey Chouhan and later issuing a statement stating that he “got confused”, saying that the Congress President doesn’t even know where the onions grow. Addressing a rally ahead of Madhya Pradesh Assembly Election 2018, Chouhan mocked 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.
Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s swipe at Gandhi also refers to the Congress leader’s “got confused” statement after his allegations against the Madhya Pradesh CM’s son.
While addressing a rally at Jhabua, Rahul Gandhi had said, “Name of the son of CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan surfaced in the Panama papers, but no action was taken. Even a country like Pakistan punished its former PM when he was named in the Panama papers.” The Congress President, took a U-turn after Shivraj Singh Chouhan threatened to file a defamation case against him.
“BJP mein itna bhrashtachaar hai ki main kal confuse ho gaya tha. Madhya Pradesh ke CM ne Panama nahi kiya unhone to e-tendering aur vyapam scam kiye hain (There is so much corruption in BJP that I got confused. The Madhya Pradesh CM has not done Panama but he has done e-tendering and Vyapam scams),” the Congress chief clarified.
