Shivraj Singh Chouhan's statement led to an explosion of jokes on social media.
On a visit to the US, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan yesterday told a meeting
that he felt the roads back home in Madhya Pradesh were a lot better than those in the US. "When I got down at the Washington Airport and travelled on roads, I felt the roads in Madhya Pradesh are better than the United States," said Mr Chouhan, who has faced flak for poorly-maintained and potholed roads in Madhya Pradesh. Never one to miss an opportunity, Twitter was quick enough to ridicule the Chief Minister's statement.
Using the hashtag 'MP Roads', tweeple began to post hilarious pics and memes on Mr Chouhan's remark. While some posted photos of beautiful highways, claiming them to be from Madhya Pradesh, others dug up a 2016 photo
of Mr Chouhan during his visit to the flood-hit areas in the state.
