Bhopal: Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s personal appeal to his “sisters” across Madhya Pradesh to return him to power in the upcoming assembly elections, due in the state in November-December this year, has landed him in Congress’ cross-hairs. Apparently to counter his move, the Congress on Friday announced to send him ten lakh letters by the party’s women workers to remind him of his government’s failure to arrest the disturbing trend of growing incidents of rape in the state.

The chief minister had posted five lakh letters to his “sisters” across the state ahead of “Raksha Bandhan”, which falls on Sunday, informing them about various welfare schemes run for them by his government and promising them to create secure atmosphere for them in the coming five years. The emotion-filled missive called upon the women to feel that their “brother” has arrived at their doorsteps.

 

The letters made an appeal to the women in the state to return him to power in the year-end elections to ensure security and prosperity for them in the next five years. He also urged the women to send acknowledgements to the letters through SMS, WhatsApp message or a missed call. MP Congress committee president Kamal Nath on Friday took a jibe at the CM for seeking support of women to get another mandate on the auspicious occasion of “Raksha Bandhan” when his government has failed to check crimes against women in the state.
