While addressing a rally in MP's Gwalior ahead of Madhya Pradesh bypolls, Kamal Nath said, "Our candidate Suresh Raje is very simple man. Our candidate is not like her, what's her name? (people shout Imarti Devi, who is former State Minister) You know her better and should have warned me earlier. Ye kya item hai."
