Incensed over repeated attacks on his government in the state, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday advised Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi to refrain from getting into the habit of making false claims at the beginning of his political career.
Rahul Gandhi during recent electoral rallies in the state repeatedly attacked the BJP state government claiming that only a fragment of funds allocated for the welfare of the poor by the Central government welfare schemes was reaching beneficiaries in the state.
Chouhan has shot off a letter to the young parliamentarian questioning him on the diminishing amount specified by him at back to back election meetings in the state.
“During a night stay in Madhya Pradesh, you (Rahul) stated that the BJP government was misusing the Central welfare scheme funds and 15 percent money was reaching the poor in the state,” the Chief Minister`s letter said.
“After this, you stated that 10 percent of the funds were reaching the people in Madhya Pradesh at an election meeting organised in Panna on April 15,” the letter added.
“Thereafter, you stated that five percent money of the Centre`s welfare scheme was reaching the people in Madhya Pradesh at an election meeting at Pipariya on April 21,” the letter said.
You have even stated that no money of the Centre`s welfare scheme was reaching the people in state while addressing an election meeting in the state, the letter said.
