Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s son Kartikey sues Congress President Rahul Gandhi

Madhya Pradesh is one of the five states to go to polls in the upcoming weeks along with Mizoram, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. The elections to the Madhya Pradesh legislative assembly will be held on November 28 and the results will be announced on December 11, 2018. 

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s son Kartikey Singh Chouhan has reportedly sued Congress President Rahul Gandhi for alleging that though Kartikey’s name has appeared in Panama Paper leaks, no action has been taken against him.

Advocate Shirish Srivastav appeared on behalf of Kartikey Singh Chouhan for the defamation case filed by Chouhan. Kartikey will give his statement and the lawyers have submitted news clipping and videos from news channels as evidence.

Kartikey’s case comes hours after Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan had threatened a strong legal action including defamation case against Rahul Gandhi.

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.

Referring to Chouhan’s son Kartikey, Rahul Gandhi had said, “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.”

Following this, Rahul Gandhi had brazened out his allegations by saying that he got ‘confused’ and wrongly named Kartikey in Panama Paper Leaks while in reality, Shivraj Singh Chouhan is ‘involved in Vyapam and e-tender scams’.

Madhya Pradesh is one of the five states to go to polls in the upcoming weeks along with Mizoram, Telangana, Chhattisgarh and Rajasthan. 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.
