Chouhan purportedly made the controversial statement while addressing a meeting of the BJP's state executive committee here on Saturday.

The chief minister said he would "hang officials upside down" if he found that revenue matters not under dispute were pending for more than a month.

He made the remark when a party leader from Bundelkhand region raised the issue of revenue matters pending for long, and sought Chouhan's intervention to cut delays.

While the Congress slammed Chouhan for using harsh words to warn officers, BJP leaders neither confirmed nor denied the statement though they maintained the CM talked about taking tough action against officials who delay clearing files without any valid reason.
