Kamal Nath said in Hindi: “Kamal Nath ki chakki chalti hai der se par bahut bareek peesti hai (Kamal Nath’s wrath is slow but very furious).” 

 

Piplani (Budhani)| Madhya Pradesh Congress president Kamal Nath on Monday alleged that some government employees in the state harboured a “secret affection” for the BJP and warned them to be ready to face his “wrath” when his party comes to power.

Addressing his first rally in Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan‘s assembly constituency, Nath said in Hindi: “Kamal Nath ki chakki chalti hai der sey par bahut bareek peesti hai (Kamal Nath’s wrath is slow but very furious).”

The Congress leader, who is seen as one of the front-runners to be his party’s chief ministerial candidate, alleged that some government officials were biased in favour of the BJP that was ruling the state for 15 years.

Such government servants do not sport the badge of the saffron party but “secretly keep it in their pockets,” Nath said.

He also cautioned police officials in the same breath, saying they should “respect the uniforms they wore.”

“Remember you have taken an oath. All officials should remember that there will 12th (December 12) after the 11th (December 11).”

“Yaad rakhna, 11 ke baad 12 bhee aata hai,” he said in Hindi, referring to the December 11 vote-counting day when results for 230 assembly seats would be known. Elections would be held on November 28 for the state assembly, where the BJP has ruled for the last 15 years.

The Congress stalwart, a nine-term Member of Parliament from Chhindwara, was holding a public rally in support of the Congress candidate from Budhni, Arun Yadav, who is also the party’s former state president.

Nath urged voters to give a “chance” to him and Yadav instead of chief minister Chouhan this time.

“I will consider Budhni a part of Chhindwara and will usher development here with the help of Arun Yadav. We will create history in Budhni,” he said at his last rally of the day.

The former union minister also attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chouhan, saying how will they clean Narmada and Ganga rivers that they have promised to do when they did not have “clean intentions”.

“They instead cleaned the banks,” Nath said referring to alleged multi-core bank scams that have come out in public in recent times including by defaulter businessmen like Nirav Modi, Mehul Choksi and Vijay Mallya.

He urged local voters to dislodge Chouhan from the seat, saying it will usher the way to progress for them and also across the state.

Nath alleged that Madhya Pradesh has become “number-one in unemployment, corruption, rape and sand mining” under Chouhan’s rule.

“For 15 years, you have suffered a government of loot and lies. It’s time to change this,” he said.

Nath talked about the development work he did in his parliamentary constituency of Chhindwara and asked Chouhan how many people had got scholarships or health care facilities in Budhani.

Before taking a helicopter to the state capital Bhopal, about 140 km from here, the Congress leader alleged that Prime Minister Modi’s flagship schemes like Start-Up India, Make in India and Digital India have all failed in this area.

Bhopal | The Congress has invited leaders from across the political spectrum for the swearing-in ceremony of party stalwart Kamal Nath taking charge as chief minister of Madhya Pradesh on December 17.

Nath, a nine-time MP from Chhindwara seat and currently president of state Congress unit, will take oath at a grand function to be held at Jamboree Maidan in BHEL area here instead of Lal Parade Ground as announced earlier. He had told reporters Friday that the swearing-in ceremony would take place at Lal Parade Ground around 1.30 pm.

According to sources in Congress, the change of venue is apparently aimed at accommodating a huge crowd the party is expecting for the ceremony. Notably, Jambooree Maidan is the venue where Nath’s predecessor Shivraj Singh Chouhan of the BJP had taken the oath with much fanfare in 2008 and 2013.

“I will take oath alone,” Nath told PTI, when asked who else will take oath along with him. This means that aspirants seeking ministerial berths will have to wait for some more time.

Nath will become the first chief minister of a Congress government in the central Indian state after a gap of 15 years.

Digvijaya Singh was the last chief minister of Congress in Madhya Pradesh. The BJP snatched power from the grand old party in 2003 and went on to retain it till its narrow defeat on December 11.

According to Congress sources, apart from UPA chairperson Sonia Gandhi and party president Rahul Gandhi, Nath has invited West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu, BSP chief Mayawati and SP president Akhilesh Yadav for the event. Besides, chief ministers of all Congress-ruled states are being invited, they said.

Leading industrialists and religious saints will also be present on the occasion, sources said.

The Bahujan Samajwadi Party (BSP) and Samajwadi Party (SP) have extended their support to Nath for forming the government after the Congress failed to cross the halfway mark (115) on its own.

The Congress won 114 seats in the 230-member Assembly. The party has secured the support of total 121 MLAs, including SP (1), BSP (2) and four Independent MLAs.

Apart from Madhya Pradesh, the Congress has come to power in Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan by dislodging the respective BJP governments there in the latest polls.
