Congress state president Arun Yadav and MP chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan addressed election rallies on Sunday and urged people to vote for the candidates of their respective parties.
Arun Yadav accused Chouhan of selling Sagar mayor ticket for Rs 7 crore, while CM in his address blamed previous Congress governments for state’s backwardness and said that the development of cities will be done according to the wish of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
Arun Yadav, who reached Sagar on Saturday evening, organised a road show and addressed public meeting at Bhagwangunj rotary and on Sunday organised a press conference. Yadav accused Chouhan of selling Sagar mayor ticket for Rs 7 crore.
He said that ESSEL power distribution company has been awarded contract at many cities in the state despite people’s protest and so it clearly shows that CM has a stake in the company.
When questioned about the charge of selling ticket, he said that Congress gave Sagar mayor ticket to Jagdish Yadav who has been working for the people for long but BJP gave mayor ticket to a coloniser.
So it is clear who has sold ticket. He also accused the state BJP government on corruption, PEB scam, farmers’ issue.
BJP’s win will ensure all-round development: CM
The chief minister addressed a public meeting at City Masjid area. He urged people to vote and support the BJP mayor and ward corporator candidates in coming election as they had earlier supported the BJP in Lok Sabha and assembly polls.
Chouhan said the BJP’s win will lead to all-round development of civic amenities including road, drainage, lake etc.
He said the government is working for the welfare of roadside vendors and small traders adding they can obtain loan under government schemes. He said the state government will build five lakh houses for the urban poor.
