An image of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan, being carried by two police officers went viral on social media a while ago. The picture was severely ridiculed by the Twitterati and followers on other social media platforms with the chief minister maintaining his silence. However, we now have a much-awaited response from the CM.
Chouhan recently said in a statement that while the image was taken, he was crossing a bridge during his visit to a flooded Panna.
The CM had seen some villagers sitting at the other end of the bridge and started towards them. Before even realizing, the policemen had lifted him and took him across the small bridge. He stated that he was “caught unawares by the cops.”
