BJP Questions Rahul's Absence from Manifesto, Cong Retorts with Scindia's Missing Face from MP Poll Raths
Political attacks have intensified in Madhya Pradesh as the by-polls for 28 assembly seats are inching closer. On one hand, BJP questioned missing of Rahul Gandhi's photo from Vachan Patras, the election manifesto distributed by Congress party locally, while on other, the Congress snapped back on BJP asking why Jyotiraditya Scindia’s picture is missing from digital chariots, which have been sent to poll-bound constituencies for campaigning.
随着28个议会席位的补选日益临近，中央邦的政治攻击愈演愈烈。一方面，印度人民党质疑拉胡尔·甘地(Rahul Gandhi)的照片从国大党在当地分发的竞选宣言瓦坎·帕特拉斯(Vachan Patras)上丢失，而另一方面，国大党反问人民党，为什么Jyotiraditya Scindia的照片在数字战车上丢失，这些战车已经被送到投票受限的选区进行竞选活动。
Besides Gandhi, the photo of senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh is also seen missing from the 'Vachan Patras', which features late prime minister Indira Gandhi, AICC president Sonia Gandhi and MPCC president Kamal Nath.
Taking a jibe at Congress for missing its former president Rahul Gandhi's photo from the manifesto, Madhya Pradesh cabinet minister Gopal Bhargav told News18, "Digvijaya Singh in Madhya Pradesh and Rahul Gandhi nationally have lost relevance for Congress party, which is why keeping their faces in front could cost them loose of votes. Hence, the party is avoiding them."
中央邦内阁部长戈帕尔·巴尔加夫(Gopal Bhargav)嘲笑国大党在宣言中错过了前总统拉胡尔·甘地(Rahul Gandhi)的照片，他告诉News18，“中央邦的迪格维贾亚·辛格(Digvijaya Singh)和全国的拉胡尔·甘地(Rahul Gandhi)已经与国大党失去了相关性，这就是为什么保持他们的面孔可能会让他们失去选票。因此，国大党正在回避他们。”
Retorting to this attack by Bhargav, Congress media cell co-ordinator Narendra Saluja said, "It was a local election manifesto so as per protocol, pictures of national president and state heads were used. We are soon releasing a main manifesto which will have a picture of Rahul Gandhi and others."
在反驳巴尔加夫的这一攻击时，国大党媒体小组协调员纳伦德拉·萨卢贾(Narendra Saluja)表示：“这是一份地方选举宣言，所以按照协议，使用了国家总统和国家元首的照片。我们很快就会发布一份主要宣言，其中将有拉胡尔·甘地(Rahul Gandhi)和其他人的照片。”
Interestingly, when the BJP introduced digital chariots to 28 poll-bound constituencies for promoting achievements by Shivraj Singh Chouhan-led government in the state, the Congress noticed the absence of Jyotiraditya Scindia's pictures from modern vehicles. The chariots, which will be used for poll campaigning, were flagged off by Chief Minister Chouhan from Bhopal on Tuesday and have pictures of top BJP leaders from the Centre and the state.
有趣的是，当印度人民党将数字战车引入28个投票选区，以宣传希夫拉杰·辛格·楚汉(Shivraj Singh Chouhan)领导的政府在该邦取得的成就时，国大党注意到现代车辆上没有乔蒂拉迪亚·辛迪亚(Jyotiraditya Scindia)的照片。这些战车将用于选举竞选活动，周二由首席部长Chouhan从博帕尔出发，车上有来自中心和邦的人民党高级领导人的照片。
It can be seen as a setback for Scindia who claimed credit on Congress assembly poll wins in Gwalior-Chambal region but later lost to KP Yadav in Lok Sabha polls, said former minister Sajjan Singh Verma, who claimed that BJP seems prepared to dilute Scindia’s identity in Gwalior-Chambal region.
前部长萨詹·辛格·维尔马(Sajjan Singh Verma)表示，这可以被视为辛迪亚的一次挫折，他声称辛迪亚在瓜利奥-尚巴尔地区的国大党议会民调中获胜，但后来在Lok Sabha民调中输给了KP Yadav。他声称，印度人民党似乎准备淡化辛迪亚在瓜利奥-尚巴尔地区的身份。
The BJP is yet to respond to the questions raised by Congress on missing of Scindia's pictures from the digital chariots.
A total of 28 seats in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly will be witnessing by-polls on November 3, of which 16 are in the Gwalior-Chambal region, which have been heavily banked on Scindia. The results will be declared on November 10.
