Time for son to take over Chhindwara says Kamal Nath

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath on Saturday said he wanted to hand over the responsibility of Chhindwara, which he has been serving for decades, to his son Nakul Nath.

Sharing the dais with his son, Nath told a gathering here: “You people will support me and Congress in the upcoming elections. I have already served you for 40 years. I have dedicated all my youth to the Chhindwara, now I want to hand over this responsibility to my son Nakul Nath.”

“Now, get your works done from him (Nakul). I will support you while remaining in the background, but you people are supposed to teach him. Give him a chance, so that we can do good development work in the state,” said the Chief Minister.

Chhindwara is considered a citadel of Congress. Kamal Nath will contest Assembly elections from this seat because it is mandatory to be elected as MLA within the six months of being appointed as the Chief Minister.

Chhindwara is a parliamentary constituency also, so, Kamal Nath may field his son from here, sources said.
