Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan is in the news for his rather unique way to inspect the flood-hit state ravaged by recent heavy rains. The heavy downpour has left several villages inundated causing massive loss of property and affecting many lives.
In photographs that have generated lot of comments on social media, Chouhan is seen being carried by two policemen as they wade across slightly higher than ankle-deep water, surrounded by more policemen and officials. With his arms wrapped over their shoulders for support, the CM managed to stay dry in his make-shift seat as he was taken to his destination. The incident occurred in Madhya Pradesh’s Panna district, ANI reported.
Chouhan Chouhan also visited Rewa and Satna districts, where officials say around 100 villages in these districts have been devastated by the recent floods. He traveled to a college in Satna where to take stock of the needs of the people had taken refuge there. He then went to the site of a collapsed building in Maihar town, and met those injured in the collapse.
Congress leader and media cell chief Randeep Surjewala took a dig at Chouhan, tweeting about he picture: “Aerial survey of floods being done by CM, Shivraj Singh Chouhan Ji in J class seat!!! See it to believe it.”
