Kamal Nath had requested celebration employees to not take pleasure in wasteful expenditure on his birthday.
Although Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath had requested celebration employees to keep away from wasteful expenditure on his 73rd birthday, the state woke as much as full-page newspaper ads itemizing out his achievements on Monday anyway. Apart from the standard phrases of felicitation, it narrated an incident from over 4 many years in the past that reportedly served to explain his loyalty to the celebration.
“When the Janata Party sent Sanjay Gandhi to Tihar Jail In 1979, Indira Gandhi was concerned about his safety. So Kamal Nath deliberately entered into an argument with a judge, so that he could be sent to Tihar Jail too. He remained with Sanjay Gandhi through his stint there,” the commercial claimed.
It went on to explain how the Chief Minister was “unfairly” ignored for the place within the early 90s. “In 1993, Kamal Nath was next in line to becoming the Chief Minister. However, Arjun Singh forwarded Digvijaya Singh’s name instead and Kamal Nath was not appointed to the position,” it claimed in an obvious reference to the factional rivalry within the state Congress.
As snippets of the commercial had been unfold broadly on social media, the opposition started taking potshots on the Congress. “It is shameful that Congress leaders are not sparing even their own Chief Minister, and that too on his birthday. One doesn’t need a CBI probe to find out who issued the advertisement,” stated BJP spokesperson Rajnish Agarwal.
However, senior Congress chief Kantilal Bhuria termed the commercial as a conspiracy hatched by the opposition celebration. “It’s the BJP that pays money to get such ads printed. Congress organisational general secretary Chandra Prabhash Shekhar has already clarified that it was not commissioned by the party. We will soon find the truth behind it,” he stated.
Kamal Nath had earlier requested celebration employees to keep away from indulging in “wasteful expenditure” to mark his birthday. “Do not put up banners, posters, hoarding and other publicity materials to mark my birthday, which falls on November 18. Everybody from party workers to organisations and the people should shun such kinds of publicity,” he stated in his enchantment.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi had earlier led political leaders in extending birthday greetings to Kamal Nath on his birthday. “Birthday wishes to Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shri Kamal Nath Ji. I pray for his long and healthy life,” he tweeted.
