Bhopal: A purported Bangladesh road was on Monday, unwittingly, caught in the crossfire of the ongoing twitter war between Madhya Pradesh Congress president Kamal Nath and chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

In an apparent faux pas, Mr Nath posted a picture of damaged “Bangladesh road” on his Twitter wall describing it as that of Madhya Pradesh while taking a swipe at Mr Chouhan for drawing comparison of roads of MP and USA.

 

The picture had a poetic caption in Hindi narrating how roads in MP have turned victim of corruptions under the rule of “Mamaji”, as the chief minister used to project himself in public.

The post said the damaged road has proved Mr Chouhan’s claim that roads in MP were better than those in Washington, a hollow.

A few minutes later, Mr Chouhan’s social media account became active “exposing” that the damaged road posted on Mr Nath’s Twitter wall was of Bangladesh and not of MP.

“First, Congress leader Digvijay Singh brought Pakistan’s bridge to Bhopal and now Mr Nath has brought a Bangladesh road to MP,” Mr Chouhan re-tweeted leaving Congress red-faced.

 

He was referring to a similar faux pas made by Congress veteran Digvijay Singh when the latter posted picture of a damaged bridge on his Twitter wall claiming it as of Bhopal.

BJP spokesman here R.S. Sisodia took a jibe at the two Congress leaders for posting wrong pictures to taint the image of Shivraj Singh Chouhan government.

“I do not understand why they are posting pictures of road and bridge of Bangladesh and Pakistan only. Perhaps they are getting messages from these countries to defame the BJP,” he said.
