BJP president Amit Shah on Friday spoke to exclusively to Republic Media Network's Political Editor Aishwarya Kapoor about where he attacked the Congress' Kamal Nath led-Madhya Pradesh government calling it an 'ATM of corruption'.
He was reacting to a question about Republic Bharat's sting operation which lay bare how the loan waiver plan of the Madhya Pradesh government has actually increased the burden on the farmers in the state after being operationalised by the Kamal Nath administration.
"Well, I saw the Republic sting. But this is not the only issue, there is rampant coruption. Madhya Pradesh has become the ATM of corruption for Rahul Gandhi
On December 12, 2018, Congress won the Assembly Elections in three states - Rajasthan, Chhattisgarh & Madhya Pradesh. During the election, their biggest promise was to waive off the loans of the farmers in only 10 days.
Now it has been over 150 days since the Congress party came to power in the three states. However, the promise is far from being kept. Republic Media Network's investigative team exposed the reality behind the fulfilment of the promise made to farmers which left a lot to be desired.
In the exclusive newsbreak, Congress MLAs was spoken to in on-camera conversations which exposed just how the farmers were waylaid after their votes helped the Congress come to power in the state.
Shah also reacted to Gandhi loyalist Sam Pitroda's shocking comment where brushed off the horrific 1984 anti-Sikh riots which took place after Indira Gandhi's assassination.
"I agree that he spoke what was in his heart and the people of Delhi and Punjab and the people of the country have heard it. People will decide whether they want a party which takes a massacre so lightly. This comment will definitely make an impact. The last two phases of the Lok Sabha elections. No one can support this kind of a comment," he said
