Undeterred by criticism, Shivraj reiterates ‘most MP roads better than those in US’; heres more
Many would term them as bizarre but that is not stopping the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan from making claim that most of roads in his state are better than those in United States.
Not deterred by massive backlash that his statement received from social media, Chauhan took on the opposition Congress and claimed that they are deliberately showing Madhya Pradesh in poor light.
“I had said that after seeing the roads of the Washington airport,” Chouhan clarified his earlier statement. Quoting a survey, he claimed that 92 per cent roads in Washington DC are in a poor state.
He added that several studies have shown that roads at the Washington airport are in a bad condition. “The Super Corridor between Indore and Bhopal is superior to the Washington roads,” he said.
It need be mentioned that Congress leaders flooded the social media with pictures of MP roads in a pitiable condition.
The CM said that that pictures of some by-lanes won’t make all MP roads bad.
Soon after his tall claims about the roads of Madhya Pradesh, social media exploded with funny comments, while Congress and other political parties took no time to grab the opportunity and accuse Chouhan of lying on foreign soil.
Chouhan stood by his earlier statement and added that the state has taken some major steps to develop the roads since 2003 and that MP has roads of global standards.>
