CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan says Kamal Nath terms MP ‘Madira Pradesh’; it’s an insult to people

Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Thursday criticised state Congress chief Kamal Nath for calling MP “Madira Pradesh” (liquor state), saying that he doesn’t have “affection” for the people of MP, their values, ethos and traditions. “He is not rooted in Madhya Pradesh. Calling MP ‘Madira Pradesh’ is an insult to people, their culture and traditions. . If he is opposing us, he should hurl abuses at us and not insult the people. It won’t be tolerated,” he said.
The CM said that the excise policy made by the government is in keeping with the sentiments of the people and safeguard the honour of women and discourage “drinking”. Reacting to chief minister’s statement, Nath said it was Chouhan, who first called Madhya Pradesh “Madira Pradesh” and also carried out a “Madira Pradesh” campaign during the Congress regime. Taking to Twitter, Nath said that Chouhan may have forgotten about it but would recall his campaign if he thinks about it.
