‘Congress Thirsty for My Blood,’ Says Shivraj Chouhan After Stones Hurled at His Vehicle


Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan attacked the Congress party on Monday over Sunday’s stone-pelting incident on his vehicle.

The CM, who is from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), alleged that Congress, which is in the opposition in MP, has become bloodthirsty.

“Congress is baying for my blood. Something like this (the incident) never happened before in MP’s political history,” he told reporters in Bhopal.

“There was a struggle over ideologies. Every party used to carry out its own programme. But this kind of an incident never happened,” Chouhan said.

The MP CM then put the ball in the court of Congress president Rahul Gandhi.

“I want to ask Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Congress state president Kamal Nath: in which direction do they wish to take Congress? Is it fine what their leaders and workers are doing?” he said.

Unidentified miscreants threw stones on the vehicle carrying Chouhan on Sunday near Sidhi district. The CM was not hurt in the incident

Stones were hurled at Chouhan’s vehicle in Churhat area, which is the assembly constituency of Leader of Opposition Ajay Singh, Madhya Pradesh BJP spokesman Rajnish Agrawal said.

Later addressing a public meeting in the district as part of his Jan Ashirwad Yatra, Chouhan dared Singh to come in the open and fight with him.

“Ajay Singh, if you have strength come in open and fight with me,” he said, adding, “I am physically weak but I won’t be bogged down by your deeds. People of the state are with me.”

The Congress refuted the allegations stating that no one from the party was involved in the incident.

“I suspect that it was a well thought and hatched conspiracy aimed at defaming me and people of Churhat,” Ajay Singh said.

Meanwhile, MP Home Minister Bhupendra Singh said that police have arrested nine persons this morning.

“They are all prominent Congress leaders. The incident is shameful and unfortunate. It also proves that Congress can stoop to any low to come to power,” Bhupendra Singh said.
