Anandiben's election tip to BJP leaders
SATNA: A viral video in which Madhya Pradesh governor Anandiben Patel can be heard giving lessons to BJP leaders on ways to garner votes has the opposition in the poll-bound state up in arms.
During her trip to Chitrakoot ahead of President Ramnath Kovind's two-day visit to the BJP-ruled state, Ms Patel told BJP leaders in Satna district that "you will only get votes when you adopt needy and malnourished children".
The opposition has accused Ms Patel of misusing her constitutional post to further the electoral cause of the ruling BJP in MP, where Assembly elections will be held later this year.
Congress leaders are planning to write to the Rashtrapati Bhavan about her conduct to demand suitable action against her.
