Bhopal: While the world is lauding Kailash Satyarthi for winning Nobel Peace Prize 2014, MLAs in his home state are completely clueless about it.
In the Madhya Pradesh Assembly on Wednesday, BJP MLAs mistakenly congratulated state minister Kailash Vijayvargiya instead. BJP MLAs claimed Vijayvargiya was honoured for his humanitarian work.
Opposition MLAs were not far behind as they complained that the Nobel Peace Prize win was a result of the Bharatiya Janata Party at the Centre.
Satyarthi's NGO Bachpan Bachao Andolan (Save Childhood Movement) was credited with liberating over 80,000 children
from bonded labour in factories and workshops across India.
