Congress Claims Madhya Pradesh Health Minister Missing Amid Covid Spike
The Madhya Pradesh Congress on Tuesday claimed state Health Minister Dr Prabhuram Choudhary is "missing" at a time when people are facing various problems due to the spike in COVID-19 cases, and offered a reward of Rs 11,000 to trace him.
Addressing a press conference via video-conference, MP Congress working president Jitu Patwari said nobody knows where is the state's health minister.
"If someone can trace him, the Congress will give a reward of Rs 11,000. What is his contribution to the state's fight against the COVID-19 pandemic? Zero," the MLA claimed.
However, BJP state secretary Rajneesh Agrawal termed it as a "political gimmick" of the Congress.
