For Rahul, family means only grandmother and parents: Shivraj
Indore: Taking potshots at Rahul Gandhi, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Sunday said that for the Congress vice president family meant only his grandmother, mother and father.
"Few days ago a friend (Rahul) visited Indore. These days he refers to his grandmother, mother and father, who he considers as his only family, while for me all the 7.5 crore people of the state are family," Chouhan said at a rally at Sanver near here on the last day of his `Janashirwad yatra`.
Referring to Rahul`s allegation quoting a UNICEF report that starvation levels in Madhya Pradesh and South Africa were same, Chouhan said his government had launched Mukhyamantri Annapurna Scheme to provide foodgrains to the people at a very low rate as far back as in 2008.
The Chief Minister, who is facing Assembly elections next month, said he will not allow any poor person in the state to sleep on a hungry stomach.
"No Chief Minister has the right to live if a poor man sleeps hungry in his state," Chouhan said.
Referring to Rahul`s promise that Congress would turn Indore into a big commercial centre, Chouhan said the city was already counted among the five top cities in the country.
