Baghel to lose his seat?

"If BJP comes into power, Chhattisgarh will develop rapidly.  The dreams of the youth will be fulfilled. The life of the Mahtari sisters here will become easier. Control of corruption, strict action against corruption will be taken," he said.

He accused the Congress of "looting" the state and said that the party will not be seen in power on Dev Deepawali. "Yesterday you celebrated Diwali. But the coming Dev Deepawali will bring new joy and enthusiasm for Chhattisgarh. The Congress which has looted Chhattisgarh will not be seen anywhere on Dev Deepawali," he said.

"Countdown of Congress govt has started"

PM Modi said that the countdown of the Bhupesh Baghel government has started in Chhattisgarh and the Congress leaders who looted the state for five years will be ousted from power.

"Both the track record and guarantee of BJP is that it has been created by BJP and only BJP will improve it. The countdown for the exit of the Congress government in Chhattisgarh has started. The time has come for the farewell of those Congress leaders who have looted you for 5 years," he said.

The Prime Minister raked up the issue of the Mahadev app 'scam' in which it was alleged that Chief Minister Baghel received over Rs 500 crore, and asked how much money did CM get and how much of it was transferred to the party's high command.

"I have some questions for the Congress leaders who are fond of teaching mathematics...I want to ask some questions about the party. The 'Mahadev betting app scam' is worth Rs 508 crore and the investigating agencies have recovered loads of cash in this case. A close aide of the Chhattisgarh CM is also in jail. Congress should reveal how much money the CM received in this. How much money the other leaders of the party have received and how much money has reached Delhi" he asked.
