Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that roads in Madhya Pradesh were better than those in the United States. During a seminar organised by the US-India Strategic Partnership Forum in Washington DC, the CM further said that his government had, in fact, connected villages in the state by constructing 1.75 lakh kilometres of roads. His statement, however, has generated a buzz on the Internet. Using the hashtag #MProads, people on Twitter are posting pictures of potholed roads of the state.

“When I got down at the Washington Airport and travelled on the road, I felt the roads in Madhya Pradesh are better than the United States… I am saying this not just for the sake of saying,” Chouhan told a business roundtable organised by the Confederation of Indian Industry and the US-India Strategic Partnership Forum in the US. Amused Twitter users were quick to take to social media and remind the minister about the potholes on the roads closer home. And they did this with the quintessential tongue-in-cheek humour that Twitter is known for.
