Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh) [India], October 20 (ANI): Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Tuesday said that former chief minister Kamal Nath has never listened to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
Speaking to ANI about 'Item remark', Chouhan said, "Rahul Gandhi said it was unfortunate, while Kamal Nath ji is saying that's his opinion. He is not paying heed to the leader. This is indiscipline. I can't understand who will Congress workers listen to now, Rahul ji or Kamal Nath ji?"
He said that Kamal Nath made Rahul Gandhi promise that farmers' loan will be waived off within 10 days but he did not fulfil that.
"He has never listened to Rahul Gandhi. Kamal Nath Ji made him say that farmers' loan will be waived off within 10 days, but did not do it. It was said in the promise letter that unemployment allowance of Rs 4000 will be given to the unemployed youth but it was not given. When has he listened to him?" asked Chouhan.
"Now the position of the Congress has become such that a thousand pieces of heart fell here and there. Now which piece goes with Rahul ji, which piece goes with Kamal Nath nobody knows," he added.
Earlier in the day, Nath refused to apologise after Rahul Gandhi condemned former Madhya Pradesh chief minister's remark about BJP leader Imarti Devi saying he has already clarified the context in which he made that statement.
"It is Rahul Gandhi's opinion. I have already clarified the context in which I made that statement... Why should I apologise when I did not intend to insult anyone? If anyone felt insulted, I have already expressed regret," said Nath.
The former CM was addressing a campaign rally in Dabra for Congress candidate Suresh Raje. Imarti Devi is also contesting on the BJP ticket from Dabra. (ANI)
