BHOPAL: As the countdown trickles down to a few days in the run up to  the Madhya Pradesh elections, The New Indian’s Executive Editor Rohan Dua engaged in a conversation about the state’s progress with Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan’s son, Kartikey Singh Chauhan, in Bhopal on Thursday.

During the discussion, the 28-year-old recluse son of chief minister revealed his dietary secret of carrying peanut butter sandwiches, in aluminium foil, along with cold coffee in a bottle, to push his energy levels for long hours of canvassing.

“It is very easy to make peanut butter sandwiches, you just need to go to the kitchen and bring out a tub of peanut butter and spread it across. It only takes about two minutes to get done with,” said Kartikey.

He highlighted the ease of preparing it by himself before morning routine for election campaign, saying it is a convenient daily snack

As The New Indian Executive Editor also shared the mutual fondness for the quick bite, the chief minister’s son though warned on the excessive use of peanut butter.

Illustrating that peanut butter sandwiches are his preferred snack as well, Dua mentioned that he favours them because they also help in satisfying any natural cravings for other snacks.


“I also share the same habit. Peanut butter can be found on my table as well. I use that since it satiates a lot of your food cravings in the morning and doesn’t leave you so hungry that you gorge on bad things like other snacks to munch on.”

During the conversation, Chouhan, the 28-year-old alumnus of the University of Pennsylvania and law graduate from Symbiosis in Pune, also highlighted the need to walk, run and work out to remain fit like his father.

Madhya Pradesh, which is gearing up for the upcoming elections scheduled for November 17, remains a strong bastion for the BJP. It is one of the few states, similar to Gujarat, where the saffron party is maintaining its political supremacy for more than 15 years despite a minor setback in 2018.
