"They are now scared that what happened in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan, will happen in Chhattisgarh too," the BJP MLA Agarwal said.

"Y ki itna paisa aa gaya hai BJP aur Brijmohan ji ke pas ki wo jis tarah se nilami hoti hai, nilami karne baithe hain kya? (This means BJP and Brijmohan has acquired so much wealth that they are prepared to auction."
