The exclusive video of Kamal Nath's behind-closed-doors meeting with Muslim leaders that has been accessed by Republic TV has sent shockwaves across the poll-bound state of Madhya Pradesh.
Even among a wide array of controversial statements, the one that really sticks out is his insistence that unless the Congress gets 90% of the Muslim votes, it is finished. Furthermore, his pursual of this '90% voteshare among Muslim voters' also entails a clear statement of intent that the Congress plans to play the Muslim card.
Even as senior BJP leaders have complained to the Election Commission, Wednesday's edition of PradeepPollPulse has attempted to gauge the on-ground ramifications of the newsbreak. Namely, what do the to-be voters think of Kamal Nath's statement and the flagrant use of the minority appeasement card?
Pradeep Bhandari, CEO and founder of Jan Ki Baat, and his team have crisscrossed the poll-bound constituencies of Chhatarpur and Sarangpur in Madhya Pradesh, asking the constituents about their opinion on the Congress Minority Video.
At the end, Pradeep delivers his take on the potential scope of the newsbreak's impact come November 28 when all 230 constituencies go to polls. Watch in the video above.
