Congress, BJP exchange barbs ahead of upcoming MP assembly polls

Terming Congress in Madhya Pradesh as a party without commander, chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan here on Sunday said the main opposition party was suffering from ‘Shivraj phobia’.

‘There is no clue to whereabouts of Congress Commander in the state and it is suffering from Shivraj phobia,’ the chief minister said, after launching a ‘Rath’ which he would be riding for his ‘Janashirvad Yatra’, starting from Ujjain on 22 July.

‘They see Shivraj even in their dreams,’ Chouhan said, while appealing the cadres to gear up for Mission-2013 (to retain power in Assembly elections). The yatra was meant to seek blessings from the people on the basis of his government’s performance in the last nine years, he said.

‘Congress had given the BJP a BIMARU state while we had turned it into a leading state in the country,’ he said.

Meanwhile, putting up a united front, the opposition Congress on Sunday expressed resolve to defeat the ruling BJP government in Madhya Pradesh for its ‘anti-people’ policies, in the upcoming Assembly elections. Leading the tirade, AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh said that chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has ‘subverted’ the local self-government system. ‘When I was chief minister, contract for various works were given directly to Gram Panchayats but this practise was discontinued during the BJP rule’.
