MP: Twitterati all praise for Shivraj Singh Chouhan on maintaining dignity of office
New Delhi, Dec 12: From labelling him a 'BJP stalwart in Vajpayee mould' to the 'people's chief minister', Twitter and political pundits were all praise for Shivraj Singh Chouhan. People commented on the fact how Chouhan set the bar too high for even for his own party colleagues.
Earlier in the day, two-time Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan submitted his resignation to Governor Anadiben Patel after the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) failed to secure the majority votes in assembly election results declared today on December 12.
