Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan hit out at Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi for his criticism of the state government ahead of the Assembly elections.

The MP CM said that Rahul was ill informed and needed to do his homework better.

Chouhan tweeted today – "The Congress VP says, `BJP`s politics is of air conditioning and royal ways`. How ill informed one can be?" He also said, "When Congress says `they` sent ?3000 crore to Bundelkhand, isn`t it strange that they believe tax payers` money is their own?"

The BJP leader further tweeted – "When Congress VP says that Indore is deprived of development and businesses, he needs to do his homework better." Chouhan added – "We created roads, people don`t need roads. We pamper industries, industries are leaving MP! I can`t make any sense. Can you?"

Rahul addressed two rallies in MP today, Rahatgarh in Sagar district and in Indore and continued his tirade against the BJP government saying that the ruling party was far removed from the concerns of the poor. "The BJP`s politics is the politics of air-conditioners and industrialists," Gandhi said. He said this while addressing a rally in the backward Bundelkhand region of the state.

The Congress VP also reminded the crowd of the central financial package worth thousands of crores of rupees for the region in 2008 and promised that more would be provided if there was a need to make Bundelkhand a prosperous region.

The Assembly polls in Madhya Pradesh are scheduled for November 25.
