- Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister derided for saying roads in US worse
- State government releases photos to counter criticism
- In August, minister had said potholed roads reminder of Congress regime
Now his government has released a series of photographs to counter the ridicule and back up Mr Chouhan's words.
In comparison photos titled "Roads in US vs Roads in MP", the Madhya Pradesh government's public relations department has contrasted the state's roads - appearing smooth and untrammeled by ditches - with what appear to be badly potholed and scarred roads in cities like New York and Los Angeles.
Reacting to the general smiles greeting his statement, he grinned: "I am not saying it just for the sake of it." He then explained how his government has constructed 1.75 lakh km of roads in the state. "We have connected all villages with roads."
The United States' road network exceeds 65.8 lakh km, the world's longest and biggest road network.
"The potholes are a reminder of the condition of roads under Congress rule," Mr Singh, the public works minister told NDTV in August this year.
The BJP has been governing the state for the last 12 years.
