Rahul Gandhi is in trouble for his comment on Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Chouhan’s son!
In a series of tweets Monday night, Chouhan said he will file a criminal defamation suit against Gandhi for linking him and his family members with several scams, including Vyapam and Panama Papers. While addressing a rally in Jhabua Monday, the Congress president said, “Name of the son of CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan surfaced in the Panama papers, but no action was taken. Even a country like Pakistan punished its former PM when he was named in the Panama papers.”
You have been making patently false allegations of Vyapam to Panama Papers against me and my family. Tomorrow (Tuesday), I am filing a criminal defamation suit for maximum damages against you for frivolous and malafide statements,” Chouhan said.

Let law take its own course now.

Chouhan further said the Congress has always looked down at BJP workers and has even called Prime Minister Narendra Modi ‘Maut ka Saudagar’, ‘neech’ and ‘Bicchu’. The party called me ‘nalayak’, ‘madari’ etc. “Staying away from making the government is getting tougher for him and it is affecting him mentally.”
Rahul Gandhi said he was confused

Hours after Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Chouhan threatened to file a criminal defamation suit against Rahul Gandhi for dragging his son’s name in the Panama papers scandal, the Congress president Tuesday clarified he got confused as there is rampant corruption in the BJP. “BJP mein itna bhrashtachaar hai ki main kal confuse ho gaya tha. Madhya Pradesh ke CM ne Panama nahi kiya unhone to e-tendering aur vyapam scam kiye hain (There is so much corruption in BJP that I got confused. The Madhya Pradesh CM has not done Panama but he has done e-tendering and Vyapam scams.
In an election rally in Jahbua yesterday, Rahul Gandhi had alleged:
“Name of the son of CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan surfaced in the Panama papers, but no action was taken. Even a country like Pakistan punished its former PM when he was named in the Panama papers.”
Though Congress president did not specifically name the CM or family, but possibly indicated to Chouhan because he is popularly known as ‘mamaji’.
” Udhar Chowkidar, Idhar Mamaji. Mamaji ke jo bete hai, Panama Papers me unka naam nikalta hai. (On one side, you have the watchman (referring to Modi), on the other side you have ‘ mamaji’. The name of the son of ‘mamaji’ figured in Panama Papers),” Gandhi said
“Nawaz Sharif Pakistan ke Prime Minister ka naam nikalta hai..Pakistan jaise desh me unko jail me daal dete hai. Magar Yahan ke chief minister ka beta, uska naam Panama Papers me nikalta hai to koi karyawai nahi hoti (The name of former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif appears in Panama Papers. In a country like Pakistan, he is jailed. Here, the name of the son of a CM figures in Panama Papers but no action is taken),” Gandhi added.
Gandhi alleged that “rampant corruption took place in the state (MP) under the chief minister Chouhan including Vyapam, e-tendering and Mahakumbh mela.”
“Nearly 50 persons were killed in the aftermath of Vyapam scam. The state’s education infrastructure has been finished. They talk of dharma but their dharma is corruption. They did not spare even the Kumbh. There was corruption in (Simhastha) Kumbh…the cost was inflated nearly 10 times. There was a demand for CBI inquiry…but even the CBI Director has been removed by Modi,” he said.
