MP: CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan to file defamation case against Rahul Gandhi for false allegations

Chauhan said that Congress President has crossed all limits by dragging his family in Panama Papers leak case and demanded an apology from Rahul Gandhi within 48 hours, failing which he threatened to take strong legal action against him.

The Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chauhan has slammed Congress President Rahul Gandhi for making “frivolous and mala fide” remarks against Chauhan and his family members. Shivraj Singh Chauhan has now threatened to initiate defamation proceedings against Rahul Gandhi.

Chauhan accused the Congress President of resorting to false allegations against him and his family members. Rahul Gandhi while speaking at an election rally at Jhabua, Madhya Pradesh had targeted Shivraj Singh Chouhan saying that “rampant corruption” had been taken place in the state during Chauhan’s rule. He also claimed that the name of Chauhan’s son Kartikey Chauhan had figured in the Panama Papers but no action was taken against him.

“Udhar Chowkidar, Idhar Mamaji. Mamaji ke jo bete hai, Panama Papers me unka naam nikalta hai. (There is Chowkidar on one side and ‘mamaji’ on the other. The name of the son of ‘mamaji’ figured in Panama Papers),” Gandhi said.

Rahul Gandhi then went on to mention former Pakistan Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif to attack the Shivraj Singh’s government. “The name of former Pakistan PM Nawaz Sharif appears in Panama Papers. In a country like Pakistan, he is jailed. Here, the name of the son of a CM figures in Panama Papers but no action is taken,” said Gandhi.

Agitated by the remarks of Rahul Gandhi, Shivraj Singh Chauhan said, “You have been making patently false allegations of Vyapam to Panama Papers against me and my family. Tomorrow, I am filing a criminal defamation suit for maximum damages against you for frivolous and mala fide statements”.

Chauhan said that Congress President has crossed all limits by dragging his family in Panama Papers leak case.

The elections to the Madhya Pradesh legislative assembly will be held on November 28 and the results will be announced on December 11, 2018. The BJP and Congress are fighting neck to neck in these states and victory in these elections will be a big boost to both BJP and Congress ahead of the general elections.
