Hitting back at Congress leader Kamal Nath for 'writing' to Lord Shiva to seek an end to the "misrule" in Madhya Pradesh, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today said such "shallow" tactics have caused the opposition party's downfall.
"My friend in the Congress is opposing (us) for no reason. After being unable to find any fault with me, he wrote a letter to Lord Mahakal (Shiva)," Chouhan told reporters on the second day of his Jan Ashirwad Yatra here.
"Mahakal is not propitiated by letters. He will be propitiated by worship," Chouhan said.
As both parties are gearing up for Assembly polls, Nath, the state Congress chief, addressed a `letter' to the deity two days ago, urging it to bless people so that they can vote out the BJP and end its 15-year "misrule".
To the Congress's claim that Madhya Pradesh is reeling under a debt of Rs 1.90 lakh crore, Chouhan said the party is not aware that states qualify for loans only after meeting the Centre's criteria to assess the financial health.
"It is a globally accepted practise to take loans for development. We can not wait till eternity to complete development projects," he added.
