“I have not even sold tea, I am just Kamal Nath,” he stated, in an obvious jibe on the Prime Minister.
“Some people say they are tigers. I am not even a tiger, but I am also not a paper tiger. Now the people of the state will decide who is who,” the Congress veteran added.
“Wherever Shivraj Chouhan goes, he makes tall announcements… He will say we have given this much money to laboureres, but during lockdown all of us have seen that they are just wandering here and there. None of them have got any money,” Kamal Nath stated.

“Out of 33 ministers, 14 are not MLAs. Is it bargaining or not? They are bringing disrespect to Madhya Pradesh and its people in the entire country….We are feeling ashamed of the kind of politics that is going on in Madhya Pradesh,” he stated.
“This kind of politics never took place in the state before,” the previous Chief Minister added.
