Congress president, on Monday, “out of confusion” dragged name of MP CM’s son in Panama Papers case and, on Tuesday, he admitted his mistake.
“How Rahul Gandhi dared to take the name of my son who is not even in the politics,” asked MP CM.
Rahul Gandhi is doing cheap politics, he alleged and demanded an apology from the Congress president.
He is leveling false allegations, Chouhan further said.

Rahul Gandhi is on a two-day tour of poll-bound Madhya Pradesh (MP).
In MP, where elections are scheduled to be held on November 28, the Congress has been struggling to oust the ruling Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) from power for the last 15 years.
On Tuesday, Gandhi will interact with news editors and the business community in two separate programmes at Indore, the commercial capital of Madhya Pradesh. He will later address public meetings at Dhar and Khargone.
On Tuesday evening, the Congress chief would address a public meeting at Mhow after offering tribute at the memorial of Dalit icon B R Ambedkar's birthplace. Mhow, about 23 km from Indore, is the birthplace of Ambedkar.
Gandhi began canvassing in Madhya Pradesh last month by offering prayers at the famous Kamta Nath temple in Satna district's Chitrakoot town.
