BJP president Amit Shah stumbled and fell while alighting from a vehicle after his roadshowin poll-bound Madhya Pradesh. The incident happened at the Tulsi Park.
One of his bodyguards quickly offered support and Shah managed to get up unhurt immediately. During the public meeting, Shah said the chief of the opposition party, Rahul Gandhi, was daydreaming about winning the November 28 Madhya Pradesh Assembly polls.
“Rahul baba is dreaming in the day that his party is going to form the government in Madhya Pradesh,” he said in a retort to Gandhi’s claim made during campaigning that the Congress would form governments in all five states — Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh, Telangana and Mizoram — that are up for polls.
Shah further ridiculed Gandhi by saying that dreaming was not bad, but one should not build castles in the air, that too during the day. “After 2014 (when the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance took over at the Centre), people have no room for the Congress and it has been wiped out from (most) states. Even with binoculars, its (Congress) traces are hardly seen anywhere,” he said.
The state is being ruled by the BJP since 2003 with Shivraj Singh Chouhan occupying the chief minister’s post since 2005.
The election results for all these states will be declared on December 11
