Amid the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas convention underway in Indore, a video purportedly showing green colour being sprayed on dry grass at a crossing here has gone viral on social media, prompting the opposition Congress to target the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party over it.
The BJP, however, claimed whenever good work takes place in the country, the Congress is not happy with it. Indian Youth Congress president B V Srinivas on Sunday shared the video on Twitter.
”Unimaginable, unbelievable pictures… Before the Prime Minister’s visit to Indore, the BJP government painted the grass green to make Indore green. Waw Shivraj wah!!” the Congress leader tweeted.
अकल्पनीय, अविश्वसनीय तस्वीरें..
प्रधानमंत्री के इंदौर दौरे के पहले इंदौर को हरा-भरा बनाने के लिए BJP सरकार ने घास को ही हरे रंग से रंग दिया। वाह शिवराज वाह!! pic.twitter.com/tMJ2jKc01V

Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) officials could not be reached for a response over the video.
However, Madhya Pradesh BJP spokesperson Narendra Saluja on Monday said, ”Indore, which has got a big opportunity to host the Pravasi Bharatiya Divas convention, has been decorated in a very short span of time and this is causing pain in the stomach of the Congress.” Saluja claimed whenever any good work takes place in the country, the Congress is not happy with it.
