Raipur: A war of words broke out between BJP and Congress after the official handle of Chhattisgarh BJP liked a post of BJP national vice president and former chief minister Dr Raman Singh against chief minister Bhupesh Baghel. Congress had alleged that the photo of post like is morphed.
Taking a jibe at chief minister Bhupesh Baghel, former chief minister Dr Raman Singh wrote “Chhattisgarh is becoming a favorite place for wine lovers! @Bhupeshbaghel, who once talked about prohibition and making promises, is now doing everything to promote liquor. That is why the state has come in the top states of the country in alcohol consumption. Congress had to "ban" liquor but are giving liquor a "boost"”.
Replying to the tweet, Chhattisgarh Congress on his official Twitter handle wrote “Look carefully at former Chief Minister Raman Singh Ji who calls himself "servant of Chhattisgarh Mahtari". There is pity for such thinking. Addressing people who like Chhattisgarh as "wine lovers". This is an insult to Chhattisgarh Mahtari.”
Singh’s post against Bhupesh government was liked by Chhattisgarh Congress. Following this, Chhattisgarh BJP took a dig at Congress saying “For the first time, the Congress has given its support by liking the tweet by @drramansingh ji on @bhupeshbaghel's 'Kochiya Sarkar'. This step of @INCChhattisgarh will help in destroying Bhupesh ji's ego.”
Chhattisgarh Congress has alleged that the photo is photoshopped. Replying to BJP’s tweet, INC Chhattisgarh on its official Twitter handle wrote “Tadap Tadap ke iss dil se aah nikalti rahi. Kaam kuch bacha nahi, bakloli chalti rahi. Dr Bayan Singh now wants to do his politics with the help of Photoshop. Keep doing”.
BJP replied to the allegations saying “Photoshop? Chup chup ke bewafaiyo wale din chale gaye, ankho me ankhe daal k daga karta hai..! Do not be afraid congressmen. Now the days of 'Half CM' are over. Stay firm against ‘Dau’.”
