Bhopal: Echoing similar remarks expressed by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who has accused opposition parties of ‘abusing’ him during campaigning, former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan too claimed on Wednesday that Congress president Rahul Gandhi and Chief Minister Kamal Nath ‘abuse’ him daily.
Addressing election rallies in the state for the last phase of polling, Chouhan accused Gandhi and Nath of falsely boasting continuously that their party waived off Rs two lakh each of farm loans in MP.
The former CM accused Gandhi and Nath of abusing him daily. “They roam around saying that farm loans are written off but I claim they are lying. If they don’t fulfill their promises and don’t waive off loans, people won’t let them inside their villages. They have to waive off loans at any cost,” asserted Chouhan.
Adding that Nath arranged a paper to claim that farm loans of Shivraj’s family have been written off, Chouhan repeated his claim that Congress leaders were lying.
Earlier, Gandhi while addressing election rallies in Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday, flashed papers claiming that the Congress government had waived off loans of Chouhan’s family members apart from several BJP workers.
Gandhi had accused Chouhan of making false accusations that loans weren’t written off. Chouhan in election rallies had asked the Congress president to furnish details of farmers whose loan were waived off.
Training his guns on CM Nath, Chouhan said the BJP had brought the MP on the path of development but the Congress looted it in their rule of four months.
“All our welfare schemes have ceased and now, only a transfer industry was running in full speed,” affirmed Chouhan.
“Only BJP can guarantee safety of farmers, youths and the public,” Chouhan added.
