Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s ‘Jan Ashirvad Yatra Rath’, which was launched on Sunday, has run into controversy.

The state unit of the Congress party has lodged a complaint at the Habibganj police station, claiming the number plate on the ‘rath’ (bus) is fake.

The BJP, in its response, claimed that since the bus still belongs to the dealer, it will get the vehicle registered once it purchases it.

Congress, on the other hand, claims that a case should be registered against the CM for violating the rules.

The luxurious ‘rath’ is an air- conditioned bus with facilities including a sofa set, a microwave, a fridge, an LCD TV, a hydraulic lift, specially designed panes, an address system, a toilet etc.
