A recent row was kicked by the comment of former Chief Minister of the state and the MPCC President Kamal Nath. A video of former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath using the word “item” seemingly for a former woman colleague who switched over to the BJP has created a furore amid campaigning for next month’s assembly by-elections. Addressing a campaign meeting in Dabra, where the Congress is up against Imarti Devi of the BJP, Mr Nath said his party candidate was a “simple person” unlike his opponent who is an “item”. In the video, he is heard saying, “Why should I take the name (of the opposing candidate)? You all know that person better than me. What an item.” He said this amid cheers from the crowd which kept shouting “Imarti Devi” as the remarks were being made. His comments created a furore with demands for apology growing.
