Madhya Pradesh Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief VD Sharma on Monday took a jibe at Congress leader Rahul Gandhi saying the congress party had been limited to a family and they had always done ‘divide and rule’.
Sharma further added that Congress and the people of Congress still had the genes of Britishers in their blood and the effect of that was they only saw division and to how to create division.
“Rahul Gandhi, his family and Congress has been limited to a family and they have always done ‘divide and rule’. Congress and the people of Congress still have the genes of Britishers in their blood and the bad effect of that is they only see division and to how to create division. They always think about how to create division in every election. But PM Narendra Modi has changed the politics of the country in 10 years, even the minorities say that PM Modi hasn’t done any partiality,” Sharma told ANI.
The BJP leader also took a dig at Congress chief Jitu Patwari’s claim that the Congress would win at least five seats out of 12 seats went to poll in the first two phases of Lok Sabha polls in the state saying the latter should wait for the counting day June 4.

“Kamal Nath also used to dream that he was going to become the Chief Minister during the 2020 assembly by-election. When the local bodies elections and the 2023 assembly polls were held, even then he was saying sorts of things and the public told him. So Jitu Patwari should wait for June 4 and that day your (Patwari) chair will also be tied up,” Sharma said.
Two phases of Lok Sabha election concluded in the state in which 12 parliamentary seats went to the polls. Six parliamentary seats-Tikamgarh (SC), Damoh, Khajuraho, Satna, Rewa and Hoshangabad went to polls on April 29 and six other parliamentary seats-Sidhi, Shahdol, Jabalpur, Mandla, Balaghat and Chhindwara–went to the polls in the first phase on April 19.
The voting for the remaining 17 parliamentary seats is scheduled in the next two phases with nine seats in the third phase on May 7 and eight seats in the fourth phase on May 13.
The counting of votes will be held on June 4.
Madhya Pradesh has a total of 29 Lok Sabha constituencies, making it the sixth-largest state in terms of parliamentary representation. Out of these, 10 seats are reserved for SC and ST candidates, while the remaining 19 are unreserved. (ANI)
