A day after Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan suspended three officers in Tikamgarh district during a live public meeting over corruption charges, he offered a ride in his official helicopter four people from tribal-dominated Alirajpur district on Wednesday.
Both the districts: Tikamgarh and Alirajpur are going to by-polls soon. The Chief Minister shared the video on Twitter. “I always want smiles on faces of my poor brothers-sisters. I had taken four tribalmen for sightseeing in helicopter during my Alirajpur visit,” Chief Minister said.
मेरे गरीब भाई-बहनों के चेहरों पर किसी भी प्रकार से मुस्कान आ जाये, यही मेरे लिए खुशी की बात है, इसी से मुझे आनंद मिलता है।आज जनदर्शन के दौरान मैं अलीराजपुर के जनजातीय भाई दरियाव सिंह, मंगल सिंह, रिच्छु सिंह बघेल और जोध सिंह को साथ हेलीकॉप्टर में घुमाने लेकर गया। pic.twitter.com/9yESrB8G3i
