Ravi Shankar Prasad, a BJP MP and former union minister, attacked the Bhupesh Baghel-led Congress government in Chhattisgarh for corruption.

Pointing at bureaucrats arrested in connection with alleged corruption in Raipur, he said “Have you ever heard that people so close to the Chief Minister are in jail and an officer handling the Chief Minister’s Office is in jail and not able to obtain the bail! The collector is in jail. Names of people who surfaced in scams are somehow linked to CM House.”
“A fundamental of politics to be kept in mind is that if your image becomes that of a leader who is either involved in corruption or supports it then the public never likes it. My point is that the coal scam was anything less that you (referring to Bhupesh Baghel) are doing a scam in the sale of liquor, appointments,” He added.

In relation to the Mahadev betting application case, which is being investigated by the Enforcement Directorate (ED), he also made attacks against the state government regarding allegations of religious conversion and temple attacks. The senior BJP leader accused the Congress of engaging in vote-bank politics, saying, “They make claims about Ram Van Gaman Path and insult Ram.”
