मध्यप्रदेश की राज्यपाल आनंदीबेन पटेल जी द्वारा भाजपा के लिए सार्वजनिक रूप से वोट मांगना संवैधानिक मर्यादा का उल्लंघन है। राज्यपाल जैसे अत्यंत सम्मानित संवैधानिक पद की गरिमा को बरकरार रखते उन्हे तठस्थ रहकर कार्य करना चाहिए न की भाजपा का चुनाव प्रचारक बनकर। pic.twitter.com/mf02CDIHgT— Jyotiraditya Scindia (@JM_Scindia) April 28, 2018
