Madhya Pradesh’s former higher education minister Jitu Patwari is the Congress MLA from Indore’s Rau segment, where he is seeking another term in the assembly. He has key positions in the state Congress unit and his rallies have seen big crowds while he continues to target the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government over alleged corruption in various departments.

In this conversation with Atul Chaurasia, the two-time MLA talks about the Congress’s poll promises, how the party plans to fulfil them, and whether Chouhan’s Ladli Behna Yojana will threaten the party’s poll prospects.
