Indore: Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industry Jyotiraditya Scindia said there was immense scope for development in Madhya Pradesh but the BJP government in the state was mired in misrule.

Addressing a Congress convention at Sugini Devi ground here on Wednesday evening the minister said the GDP in Madhya Pradesh was struck at 4.4 per cent while malnutrition was 44 per cent.

He said the state government needs to answer as to why this was happening in Madhya Pradesh.

The young Congress leader also took a dig at BJP veteran L K Advani's Jana Chetana Yatra, to take on the UPA government on issues of corruption and blackmoney.

Scindia said that Advani did not speak a single word about former Karnataka Chief Minister Yeddyurappa or even Reddy brothers, who are facing corruption charges.

He said the Congress has become a unified force in Madhya Pradesh and added that its aim was to serve the people.
