The assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh is scheduled to take place on November 25 in single phase in all 230 constituencies. The main rivals- the ruling BJP and the opposition Congress, both have heated up their election campaign process.

The results on December 8 will finally, decide the fate of the poll-bound state for next five years.

Till now, only the MP Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan was lashing out the Congress at his public rallies, but now, it has been reported that all the BJP ministers are hitting out at the opposition Congress party in Madhya Pradesh.

The state president and an MP from Jabalpur constituency, Rakesh Singh alleged that Congress is playing a dirty game with the common people by rising the prices often, while citing the example of recent price hike in diesel and rail tickets fare prices.

The 2 percent passenger fare hike, second time in a year, came into effect from October 7, while a similar hike of about 1.7 percent in freight would be effected from October 10 under the Fuel Adjustment Component (FAC).

The assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh is scheduled to take place on Nov 25.

He also said that the Congress-led UPA government has no policy to control price rise. Singh also raised questions on the looming economic situation of the country with Rupee value continuously falling.

He also advocated that Congress should learn from BJP that how a government is run in the Centre.

Another BJP MP from Satna constituency of MP, Ganesh Singh took on the Union power minister Jyotiraditya Scindia by saying that MP government has invested Rs 25,000 crore on Power feeder separation scheme and has provided uninterrupted power supply in 52 villages. He claimed that Centre has no role in providing power facility in MP.
