Neemuch (Madhya Pradesh):
Defence Minister and senior BJP leader Rajnath Singh on Monday heaped praise on Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for his leadership quality and sought to compare him with legendary cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni who was known for his match-winning abilities.
Addressing a public meeting before flagging off the Bharatiya Janata Party's Jan Ashirwad Yatra in Neemuch, Mr Singh said like Mr Dhoni, known as one of the best finishers in the game who led India to the 2011 ODI World Cup victory, Chouhan will also pull off a win in the year-end assembly polls.
The Jan Ashirwad Yatras (March for People's Blessing) aim to reach out to the masses highlighting the achievements of the BJP government ahead of the Madhya Pradesh polls. The first yatra was launched by BJP president JP Nadda in Chitrakoot on Sunday.
