Senior Congress leader Kamal Nath slams BJP for demanding an account of the Congress 15-month-rule in Madhya Pradesh.
Madhya Pradesh Congress chief Kamal Nath retorted that BJP should present an account of its 15-year-long rule before asking about the performance of the previous Congress-led government that was in power for 15 months. In his statement to the reporters in Gwalior, he has boldly accused the BJP of coming to power in the state through "notes" (money)
In what seems like an alleged jab towards Congress-turned-BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, Mr Nath said, “We don’t want certificates from Shivraj Singh Chouhan (Chief Minister) and BJP. People are the witness.”
“How dare they (BJP) ask for 15-month from me? They are not giving an account of the BJP’s 15 years of rule. They should give their account first,” he said. He also claimed that farm loans of 26 lakh farmers were waived by his government and claimed he was ready to give a list of the beneficiaries to Mr Chouhan. He accused the Madhya Pradesh government of conducting less number of coronavirus tests as compared to other States and also alleged that Mr Chouhan had made false announcements.
While reacting to these statements¸State BJP spokesmen Rajneesh Agrawal said the Congress must give an account of its 15-month rule and insisted that they repeatedly went to people with the account of BJP government during various assembly and Lok Sabha elections in the past 15 years. Mr Agarwal ended his statement by mentioning that the BJP government in the State was formed purely through the democratic process.
