A day after a Congress chief known as him “nange bhooke ghar ka” (from a poverty stricken family) throughout a bypoll marketing campaign rally, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan hit again on Monday claiming hailing from a poor background allowed him to know the ache of the disadvantaged and downtrodden.
Addressing a rally on Sunday in Rajpur in Ashoknagar, Congress farmers’ cell chief Dinesh Gurjar highlighted Mr Chouhan’s humble origins and that of “huge industrialist” former chief minister Kamal Nath.
“Kamal Nath desh ke doosre quantity ke udyogpati hai. Shivraj ki tarah nange bhooke ghar ke nahi (Kamal Nath is a giant industrialist. He isn’t like Shivraj (Singh Chouhan) who’s from a poverty-stricken family),” Gurjar stated within the presence of the senior Congress chief who was state CM until March. Responding on Twitter, Mr Chouhan stated. “I’m from a nange bhooke ghar ka, and that is why I perceive their ache.
I’m poor and, due to this fact, guarantee poor kids go to high school by changing into their mama (because the CM is affectionately known as by supporters). I’m poor, due to this fact, I carry out kanyadaan (giving freely the bride) of daughters of poor households.”
Addressing a rally in Guna, Mr Chouhan lashed out on the Congress over the “nange bhooke” comment and took a swipe at Mr Nath by stating “I perceive the ache of the poor however an industrialist will not”.
The BJP and the Congress are in a bitter tussle for 28 MP Meeting seats the place bypolls are scheduled for November 3.
