Congress President Rahul Gandhi on Tuesday has clarified that he mistakenly took the name of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan in Panama papers.

Gandhi said I got confused on Monday due to an immense corruption in the BJP, Madhya Pradesh CM has not done Panama but he has done e-tendering and Vyapam scam.

Clarification of Gandhi came after Chauhan’s threat to file a criminal defamation suit against Gandhi for dragging him and his family in Panama papers.

Chauhan tweeted, “Mr @RahulGandhi, you have been making patently false allegations of Vyapam to Panama Papers against me and my family. Tomorrow, I am filing a criminal defamation suit for maximum damages against you for frivolous and malafide statements. Let law take its own course now.”

“For the past many years, Congress has been accusing me and my family. We respect everybody and maintain our dignity but, today Rahul Gandhi crossed his limits when he said my son Yuva Kartikey’s name has come in Panama papers. We are going to file a defamation suit against him tomorrow,” another tweet of Chauhan.

The response of the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister came after the rally in Jhabua on Monday when Congress president had said, “Name of the son of CM Shivraj Singh Chauhan surfaced in the Panama papers, but no action was taken. Even a country like Pakistan punished its former PM when he was named in the Panama papers.”
