Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, has strongly criticized the Congress party’s recently unveiled manifesto, referring to it as a ‘bundle of false promises.’ Speaking to the media on Tuesday, he confidently asserted that the people of the state would see through the opposition party’s claims and reelect the BJP to form a government with a clear majority.
Following the release of the Congress party’s ‘Vachan Patra’ ahead of the upcoming assembly elections, Chouhan wasted no time in rebutting their pledges, emphasizing that the BJP’s commitment to public welfare and development far outweighed what he perceived as empty promises from the Congress.
In an unwavering statement, the Chief Minister expressed his confidence in the public’s discernment, saying, “The public will respond to them… BJP will win again, and with a substantial majority. Because what we say, we do…”
He also underscored the BJP’s track record of development and progress, asserting, “The BJP government has developed, and will continue to progress further.”
The Congress party, led by state chief Kamal Nath, had unveiled its manifesto at an event in Bhopal’s Ravindra Bhawan. The document included a series of commitments, such as providing a Rs 25 lakh health insurance cover to all the people in Madhya Pradesh, offering 27 percent reservation for Other Backward Classes (OBCs), and even the promise to establish an IPL team representing the state.
With the assembly elections looming, the political discourse in Madhya Pradesh appears set to intensify, with both major parties presenting their visions and agendas to the electorate, leaving the final verdict to the voters.
