Arey Yahin Reh Jao Na: Shivraj Chouhan’s Emotional Appeal At Indore Event



Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan today gave an emotional address at the 17th Pravasi Bharatiya Divas in the state. Comparing the event to a daughter’s wedding, he said he is emotionally overwhelmed, with a lot of joy and happiness in his heart, but there’s also sadness in some corner.

“We had your company for three days. Indore became one with you. Truly, Indore prepared to host the convention as one prepares for a daughter’s wedding. But the daughter’s vidai (leaving for the husband’s home) pains the heart too. Three days of hope and festivities went by so quickly. Now, the heart is heavy thinking you will leave…arey yahin reh jao na (please stay back),” he said.
