Nath is egoistic: Shivraj

Bhopal, Oct 31 (UNI) In a frontal assault targeting his predecessor, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday alleged that Congress state President Kamal Nath is unable to renounce his pride and now considers even the Election Commission of India’s decision as erroneous.
“In Mr Nath’s view, his leader Rahul Gandhi is also wrong! He feels similarly regarding government officials and even threatens them. All this signifies Mr Nath’s disappointment. He is pained by the fact that he had to relinquish power but while he was holding the reins he did work in public interest,” the senior politician conveyed via social media.

Bhopal, Oct 31 (UNI) Rajya Sabha Member Digvijaya Singh on Saturday vociferously objected to Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee President Kamal Nath’s name being deleted from the star campaigners’ list by the Election Commission of India.
“I have respect for the ECI that has taken cognisance of my party’s complaints and acted on them. However, removal of Mr Nath’s name constitutes a violation of rules as that is the exclusive jurisdiction of political parties and not the ECI.
