Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan addressed a public rally ahead of assembly polls to be held later this year. In his address, he criticised the Congress of not doing enough for the development of the state. While speaking at the rally, he said, "I am proud to say that the BJP increased the growth rate to 10 percent. In the time of Congress the agricultural growth rate was very less but we increased it to 20 percent because of which the state has earned awards for the same. The Congress has destroyed the future of a whole generation."
