Madhya Pradesh: Congress issues clarification after Salman Khan rubbishes claims of him campaigning for them

Congress leader Pankaj Chaturvedi had claimed that party leaders have talked to khan for campaigning in Indore.

The Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee has issued a clarification over Actor Salman Khan’s tweet rubbishing speculations of him joining any political party. After a meeting between CM Kamal Nath and Salman Khan before the announcement of Lok Sabha election dates, speculations were rife that the actor is going to contest on a Congress ticket and will also get involved in the party’s promotion in the state.

“CM Kamal Nath had held discussions with Salman Khan, but those were about appealing Khan to contribute to the development of the state. There were talks of offering Salman Khan with the task of promoting tourism in the state, but the official invitation to the become ambassador for tourism has still not been given. Party has not given any offer to Salman Khan to campaign for it” The clarification issued by MPCC reads, as per a Naiduniya report.

After the meeting with Salman Khan, CM Kamal Nath had told the press that he had reminded actor Khan about his relationship with Madhya Pradesh and appealed for his contribution to the development of the state. He had also given Salman Khan offer to work for the promotion of tourism for the state.

This announcement by CM Kamal Nath had given rise to speculations that Salman Khan will join Congress and will be fielded from challenging Lok Sabha seat of Indore.

Congress leader Pankaj Chaturvedi had claimed that party leaders have talked to khan for campaigning in Indore. Khan was born in Indore’s Palasia area and has spent some childhood years in the city. In 2009, Khan had participated in a road show and had campaigned for Congress mayoral candidate. However, the candidate had lost to BJP.

Amid this, when news of Salman Khan arriving in Mandu city of MP became viral, speculations grew stronger that Khan had joined Congress and was coming there for campaigning. However, it was later clarified that Khan was in Mandu only for a shooting schedule.

After this, Salman Khan himself had to discard the rumours surrounding his political affiliations. On Thursday, the actor tweeted rubbishing the rumours claiming of his political debut.

Subsequently, the Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee also issued a clarification, clearing the air and denying giving any offer to Salman Khan to contest from the party and take part in the election campaign.
