The Congress has also taken note of the fact that the two BJP CMs in the elec­tion go­ing states of Mad­hya Pradesh and Ra­jasthan had been in the cen­tre of two high pro­file scams—Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the Vyap­pam case and Va­sund­hara Raje in the Lalit Modi scan­dal—but the party had not given in to pub­lic cen­sure and asked for their res­ig­na­tions. And with time, the al­le­ga­tions have lost steam and are not ma­jor is­sues in the com­ing elec­tions ei­ther. Com­pare this to the Congress when it im­me­di­ately asked for Ashok Cha­van’s res­ig­na­tion as Ma­ha­rash­tra CM in the Adarsh case (though he has since been given some re­lief by the High Court in De­cem­ber 2017). Now the Congress feels that it was wrong to take the moral high ground and de­mand res­ig­na­tions un­til the charges have been cleared. In­stead, it should have taken the BJP way and let the ac­cused con­tinue in of­fice till the charges have been proved.
