Facing the heat for the Madhya Pradesh Professional Examination Board (MPPEB) scam, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan Wednesday launched a counter-attack on the Congress, saying the party was suffering from “Shivraj phobia” and using its “dirty-tricks department”.
Chouhan said the opposition party, which had faced a string of poll defeats, was frustrated and fighting a battle to stay relevant in state politics. He asserted the Congress was levelling baseless allegations it had been exposed in the eyes of people.
In another interactions, Chouhan said the Congress was attempting to lower the dignity of the CM’s chair. He added that he did not feel the need to respond to every allegation, but would take legal action if required. “They think they will grow in stature if they attack the CM and get some publicity,” he added.
