Chouhan fires broadside at UPA
Tikamgarh, MP, July 23 (UNI) Slamming the Centre's policies as anti-farmer and anti-poor, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said the inflation during UPA tenure vexed the common man and peasants alike.
''The Congress and their alliance partners will have to pay the price for this state of affairs,'' he said here at the inauguration of six schemes amounting to Rs 90 crore at former chief minister and BJ Founder President Uma Bharti's native district.
Announcing more schemes -- totalling Rs 60 crore -- for the district, Mr Chouhan added that the Centre's policies were forcing ryots to suicide.
''Over the next two-and-a-half years, Madhya Pradesh will be among India's developed states,'' he assured.
Without naming Ms Bharti, the chief minister said it seemed as if those responsible for Tikamgarh's backwardness would now be separated from the political mainstream.
