MP BJP poll ad features WB highway, fields in Iran: Union minister

Bhopal: In allegations which could cause some discomfiture for BJP if proved correct, Union Minister Harish Rawat on Tuesday said that a highway and an agricultural field shown by the ruling party in a poll advertisement were not even located in Madhya Pradesh.

The highway shown in the said advertisement ran through Durgapur in West Bengal while the field shown in it was located in Iran, Rawat told reporters here.

He said it was sad that despite being in power in Madhya Pradesh for 10 years, BJP could not build a single highway which it could showcase in a poll advertisement.

BJP had simply taken these pictures from the Internet and tried to pass them off as symbols of the party's work in Madhya Pradesh, Rawat alleged.
