Rahul was addressing a public meeting in Bhopal after holding a roadshow to kickstart the Congress' campaign for the Assembly polls slated later this year. "You all have known about Tendulkar. Whenever he played any innings, everybody was assured that he will score at least 50, 60, 70 or 100 runs. Here, in Madhya Pradesh, there is a run machine known as the state chief minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan who makes announcements with the same pace," Rahul said.

He said Chouhan has made 21,000 announcements so far "but nothing happened". He then asked the gathering, "What you have got? Madhya Pradesh ranks first in unemployment, rapes,
malnutrition and crime against women, Rahul alleged.
