I was confused: Rahul clarifies on allegations against Chouhan's son


ANI Politics
Congress president Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday clarified that he got confused when he leveled allegations that Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's son was named in the Panama papers. Gandhi scion had leveled the allegations at a public rally in Jabua on Monday.
In a scathing attack on Chouhan, Gandhi had said, "Shivraj Singh's son has been named in the Panama papers. Even the country like Pakistan has punished its former prime minister Nawaz Sharif when he was named in the Panama papers. But here no action has taken place as of now."
Covering up his factually wrong statement, Gandhi today said that though the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister was not involved in Panama but "has done scams like e-tendering and Vyapam."
"There is so much of corruption in the BJP that yesterday I got confused. Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister hasn't done Panama but he has done scams like e-tendering and Vyapam," the Congress chief said.
On Monday late night, the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister threatened to file a criminal defamation suit against Gandhi for making "frivolous and mala fide statements".
Issuing the warning to the Congress chief through a tweet, Chouhan wrote that he would take legal action against Gandhi.
