Madhya Pradesh Prime Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said on Friday February 11 that Congress had no need of rivals as party leader Rahul Gandhi himself was doing all the necessary work. CM Chouhan called Rahul Gandhi’s rallies a “source of entertainment” and explained that the Congress party was going through a leadership crisis. Earlier, MP CM had been conducting a door to door campaign in the Jwalapur Assembly constituency in Haridwar ahead of the upcoming elections in Uttarakhand.
“Rahul Gandhi says he is not afraid. Who scares you? He speaks in Parliament and runs away, he doesn’t have the courage to listen to answer. His public rallies are a source of entertainment. Congress does not need rivals, Rahul Gandhi alone does all that is needed,” said Shivraj Singh Chouhan.
This comes after Congress leader Rahul Gandhi attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his speeches in Parliament and subsequent interview with ANI news agency, stating: “I am not afraid of Narendra Modi; his arrogance makes me laugh”.
CM Shivaraj Chouhan further slammed the Congress leader, saying: “He has destabilized a properly functioning government in Punjab. Congress is in a leadership crisis. You have a G-23 group in Delhi that openly shows disagreement. Even in Uttarakhand, the Congress ‘ Leader?’.
BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan expressed confidence that the BJP would win more seats in the last election than it secured. He said he will attend Pushkar Singh Dhami’s swearing-in ceremony.
