As the high-octane campaign for Madhya Pradesh begins to gather steam, Congress has taken potshots at state Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan over his remarks on American roads during his visit to the country last year. Congress heavyweight Jyotiraditya Scindia blamed the state government for the pits on the roads in a video he shared on his personal Twitter handle. The video purportedly shows a Vikas Yatra tableau of the Bharatiya Janata Party carrying images of Chouhan and Prime Minister Narendra Modi getting stuck in a giant-sized pothole as people try to push the vehicle out of it. Scindia captioned the video in satirical manner, saying: People push Shivraj Singh Chouhans 14 years of development stuck in the pits on the roads of golden Madhya Pradesh which are better than America.

The chief minister Chouhan had yesterday said the state government is committed to bring the Narmada river water and a rail network to the tribal-dominated Jhabua district. The state government has sanctioned funds to develop infrastructure for the Narmada water supply to Jhabua and the Centre will provide assistance to lay a rail line in the district, he said. Several places in the region are not yet connected with the rail network.
