The Prime Minister further added that both the Congress leaders have only one agenda: “Whose son would capture the Madhya Pradesh Congress”. He said, “They are busy upsetting Madhya Pradesh in order to set their sons."

A video clip was widely shared on social media where Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) chief Kamal Nath was heard telling a group of people to ‘tear up the clothes’ of senior party leader Digvijaya Singh. He could also be heard blaming Singh over ticket distribution to candidates in Shivpuri seat, which Kamal Nath expected would be given to Virendra Raghuvanshi, a sitting MLA from Shivpuri's Koalas constituency who recently joined the Congress from BJP.

“I myself did not understand why K.P. Singh has to be fielded from Shivpuri. I got Virendra to join the party and now I am embarrassed in front of him. I have called Digvijaya Singh and K.P. Singh to Delhi," he was heard saying in the clip.

Notably, both of the former chief ministers have their stakes in the upcoming assembly elections. Kamal Nath is a candidate from Chhindwara seat and many of Digvijaya Singh's family are also in the fray.
