The bypoll scene turned murkier in Madhya Pradesh on Sunday when former chief minister Kamal Nath during a poll meeting in Dabra assembly seat of Gwalior district, mocked the BJP candidate and cabinet minister, Imarti Devi allegedly referring her as `item’. Nath’s statement fumed BJP as the party lodged a complaint with the Election Commission of India (ECI) against the former MP CM for using derogatory remarks against a Scheduled Caste candidate and demanded to put a ban on the Congress leader’s campaigning during the by-polls. “Hamare ummidwar saral sade swabhav ke hain…ye uske jaise nahin hain…kya hai uska naam?…(crowd says aloud…Imarti Devi)….Kya uska naam lun…Aap to usko mere se jyada pehchantey hain…Aap ko to mujhe pehle hi satark kar dena chahiye tha..Ye kya item hai…kya item hai..(Our candidate is simple in nature. He is not like her…What is her name….Why should I call her name. You all should have warned me…What an item she is….What an item!),”said Kamal Nath amid loud noise of the crowd. The BJP leaders took no time to condemn Nath’s remarks. Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan also reacted sharply saying the remarks have exposed the feudal mentality of the Congress leader. He should withdraw his remarks and apologise to Imarti Devi, he said.
