It is noteworthy that while campaigning for Congress candidate Suresh Raje, contesting from Dabra Assembly seat against Imrati Devi, Kamal Nath on Sunday said, “Suresh Raje ji is our candidate from Dabra. Simple-minded, simple. They are not like him. What is his name? Meanwhile, the people present there started loudly saying ‘Imarti Devi,’ Imarti Devi.
After this, Kamal Nath laughed and said, “Shall I name him (Dabra’s BJP candidate)”. You recognize him more than me. You should have warned me in advance. What is this item? “
