He alleged that farmers are not getting power for long durations contrary to the claims made by the Chief Minister.

"Chouhan claims world over that there is a 24-hour electricity supply in MP and there is no power cut. However, the situation is altogether different in the region and farmers are not getting power at all for long duration," Scindia claimed.

He said the ruling party should not "defame" its top leader and former Prime Minister "in whose name it has formulated the 'Atal Yojna' which has become 'Atal Katauti Yojna' in the area."

The Guna MP alleged that no investors' meets were held in reality, contrary to the claims made by government.

Scindia, also the chief whip in Lok Sabha, accused the Narendra Modi government of "failing" to pay minimum support price to farmers for their produce.

He said country's agriculture growth rate stood at 4.5 per cent under the Congress' rule, but has come down to just one per cent under government.

Attacking the Chouhan government over "Vyapam and Simhastha scams", he said, "While people are suffering, the leaders are becoming richer in the state."
