Congress president Rahul Gandhi, on Tuesday, admitted that he got confused on Monday and by mistake dragged the name of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s son in Panama Papers case.

“There is so much corruption in the BJP that yesterday I got confused. MP CM is not involved in Panama Papers, he has done e-tendering and Vyapam scams,” said Gandhi on his earlier remark that MP CM's son was named in Panama papers. 

While commenting on who will be the CM candidate for the state, Congress president said that it will be decided by the people. 

He also attacked PM and said, "Modi is a corrupt man. It is an open and shut case".

In reply to another question he said that the Congress government will improve the GST and make it more meaningful. 

He also said that except one or two, those who have come from outside will not going to get the ticket. 

Meanwhile, MP CM has demanded an apology from the Congress president for his Panama Papers comment.

Rahul Gandhi is on a two-day tour of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh (MP).
