Voting for 230 seats in Madhya Pradesh will be held on November 17. This time in the elections, a tough fight is expected between the country’s oldest party, Congress and the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party. In such a situation, the leaders of both the parties have intensified their sharp attacks on each other in election rallies on Wednesday, after which the campaign ended up.
During an election rally in Datia, Madhya Pradesh, Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra took a dig at state’s Home Minister Narottam Mishra and said he only watches movies and sees who wear what.
“Look at the work of BJP leaders in Madhya Pradesh. First is Home Minister of Madhya Pradesh, whose duty is to enforce the law. But he watch movies all day long, and he is more worried about who wears what. He is not concerned about you,” said Priyanka Gandhi.
Further attacking CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan, Priyanka Gandhi said: “The second one is world-famous actor Shri Shivraj Singh Chouhan. He is ahead of Amitabh Bachchan in acting and when it comes to work, he becomes Asrani.”
Further attacking PM Modi, Priyanka Gandhi said: “There are long queues for fertilizer in Madhya Pradesh. Fertilizer is not available here. Reason — At the time of elections in Madhya Pradesh, Modi ji’s photo was pasted on fertilizer bags, due to which the Election Commission banned the distribution of fertilizer. That’s why the farmers here are worried, their time is being wasted.”
“BJP leaders have made thousands of hollow announcements in Madhya Pradesh, which even they do not remember now. The BJP government of Madhya Pradesh has given employment to only 21 people in the last 3 years, whereas Chhattisgarh has the lowest unemployment,” said Priyanka Gandhi, attacking the BJP.
“Gandhiji used to say that unless our villages are strong, this country cannot be completely independent. That’s why we brought MNREGA, laid emphasis on farming, empowered the Panchayats. Congress governments have worked on this thinking of Gandhiji,” said Priyanka Gandhi.
The Madhya Pradesh assembly elections are scheduled to take place on November 17, in a single phase, followed by counting of votes and declaration of results on December 3.
