Chouhan alleged that Mr Nath and Congress veteran Digvijay Singh had taken the decision on selection of candidates in MP
Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday took jibe at veteran leader Kamal Nath for incurring wrath of the Congress workers over ticket distribution in his party in the ensuing assembly polls, alleging that “AICC leadership has perhaps given the franchise of MP unit of party to Mr Nath”.
Mr Chouhan cited recent remarks by Mr Nath that the latter’s son Nakul Nath, Congress MP from Chhindwara, would announce candidates for the assembly constituencies under his Lok Sabha seat, before being declared by the AICC, and wondered “Whether Congress in Madhya Pradesh is the Congress of Sonia Gandhi or the party of Kamal Nath”.
The AICC chief has perhaps given franchise of the party’s MP unit to Mr Nath, the chief minister alleged.
He alleged that Mr Nath and Congress veteran Digvijay Singh had taken the decision on selection of candidates in Madhya Pradesh for the November assembly elections.
Both the leaders distributed party tickets to their respective followers, triggering resentment in the party, he alleged.
