Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Wednesday, the last day of poll campaigning in Madhya Pradesh, hit out at Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and state Home Minister Narottam Mishra.
Addressing a poll rally in Datia, the Congress leader took a jibe at Mishra who is among saffron leaders who have been racing to present themselves as a hard - Hindutva leader, at his home district.
Reminding people about Mishra's controversial remarks on Bollywood, the Congress star campaigner asserted that instead of focusing on state's law and order situation, he was busy in watching movies and creating controversies around them.
"Kon kya kapde pehna hai? Kis rang ka kapda pehna hai? iski chinta jyada karten hai Mishra ji, (who is wearing what, the colour of clothes interests him more than people's welfare) " Priyanka said referring to his remarks on actress Deepika Padukone's bikini.
Priyanka then called Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan as world famous actor."Acting men to Shivraj ji Amitabh Bachachan ji ke bhi kaan kaat lengen, lekin jab kaam ki bat aati hai to Asrani ke role me aa jate hai. (Shivraj ji can beat Amitabh bachchan in acting, but it comes to work, he acts like Asrani)," Priyanka stated on a humourous note.
