PFI does terror funding and is involved in terrorist activities. It has been banned and is an enemy of the country. If action is taken against it then Digvijay Singh opposes, is this the stand of Congress? Glorifying terrorists, opposing surgical strikes and action on PFI.”
“You (Priyanka Gandhi) are coming to Madhya Pradesh and you will have to answer whether you agree with Digvijaya Singh’s statement. Is Congress opposing action on PFI,” Chouhan requested. Reacting to the action being taken by National Investigation Agency (NIA) on the premises of PFI at numerous locations in a number of States, together with Madhya Pradesh, the previous CM Digivijay Singh on Wednesday stated, “97 percent cases on PFI have been found to be false.”

Baiga, Bahria and Sahariya are extremely backward tribes in tribal communities. The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) Government started giving Rs 1000 a month to women of said communities in 2017. Why did former CM Kamalnath stop it? What wrong did these sisters do? You will have to answer,” CM stated.
“If Priyanka Gandhi has come, she will again speak lies, the false promise of loan waiver within 10 days was made last time, the lie of giving unemployment allowance to youth, lie of giving bonus on support price. Is she coming to guarantee lies,” Chouhan additional requested.
