CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan Calls Out Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Shoot And Scoot’ Politics, To File Defamation CaseMadhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

In a tweet made yesterday (23:57 IST), Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan declared that he shall be filing a criminal defamation suit against Rahul Gandhi. Calling out the Congress President for making frivolous statements against him and his family pertaining to the Vyapam scam and Panama Papers, Chouhan said that he wanted the law to take its course.

Addressing a rally on Monday, Gandhi had alleged that the Chouhan government was pursuing a dharma of corruption. He also stated that the State Government was involved in the Vyapam scam which resulted in the death of over 50 people. Further, he added that the government was involved in financial irregularities in the organising of (Simhastha) Kumbh Mela and the total cost was inflated ten times.

With the state elections scheduled in Madhya Pradesh a month from now on 28 November, it will be interesting to see how Congress responds to this development.

Now as reported by Indian Express, following Chouhan's threat of defamation suit, Rahul Gandhi clarified on Tuesday (30 October) that he got confused. In the same breath he added that the reason for his confusion was that there is rampant corruption in the BJP.
