Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan Thursday took a dig at Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi saying nobody took his remarks seriously. On Wednesday, Gandhi had claimed that he had certain evidence which would prove prime minister Narendra Modi’s personal involvement in corruption. When asked to comment on Rahul’s allegations, the chief minister said, “The question isn’t important enough to be answered because nobody takes them seriously.”
“Mujhe sabse barhi taqlif hai yeh ke Rahul Gandhi ji ko iss desh mein koi seriously leta hi nahi hai (I’m hurt that no one in the country takes Rahul Gandhi seriously),” he told news agency ANI. “Unki baaton mein gambhirta hoti hi nahi, kaun unpe bharosa karta hai? (There is no seriousness in what he says. Who would believe him?)”
Praising PM Modi, Chouhan said the prime minister was dedicated solely towards the betterment of the nation and nothing else. “PM Modi thinks about the country and whatever is in the interest of the nation,” he said adding that the public lauded the government’s decision to demonetise high value currency notes to “curb corruption and fight terrorism.”
“Saara desh unke peeche aankh bandh karke kharha hai. Baaki jo partiyan hai unki peerha, dard aur taqlif yahi hai ke Narendra Modi itne barhe chamatkar kaise bann gaye (The entire country is standing behind him (Modi). The other parties are worried how Narendra Modi became such a wonder),” he said.
