The BJP leader attacked Nath for his statement over Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "indecent".

Slamming the Kamal Nath-led government, the BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Friday said that its decision to allow liquor license holders to open sub-shops by paying extra will turn the state, "Madhya Pradesh" into "Madira Pradesh".

"This decision will make Madhya Pradesh 'Madira Pradesh'. When our government was there, we had decided that no new liquor shops will be opened in the state and we had even started closing the liquor shops which were already there at that time... Don't take such decisions which will destroy the state," Chouhan told media here.

"The question is not about liquor shops. It is about the security of women and the future of youth," he said.

The BJP leader attacked Nath for his statement over Prime Minister Narendra Modi is "indecent".

On Thursday, the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister accused the BJP of diverting the attention of people from real issues and said "no one from the party took part in the freedom struggle" but it was giving lessons in nationalism.
