Bhopal: The Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, has sent a Rs 10 crore defamation notice to Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

The notice has also been served to MP Congress unit president Kanti Lal Bhuria.

The defamation notice has been served in response to an advertisement released by the Congress party which targeted Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s family over corruption.

"A greedy family has looted Madhya Pradesh," the advertisement said.

In the run-up to Madhya Pradesh polls, the Congress has been attacking Chouhan and his family over corruption.

It has also hit out at the MP CM over development, saying he has only made hollow claims.

"In the last ten years of BJP rule in Madhya Pradesh, lawlessness prevailed and the state has become totally a worst state," Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia said.
