‘BJP lost polls wherever Modi campaigned’


Share post:


Sagar (MP): Taking a dig at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi over his visit to Hyderabad, where he is slated to address a public meeting on Sunday, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh said that the BJP had lost polls wherever the former campaigned for it in the past. “We are not afraid of Modi. Wherever he had gone for campaigning, BJP got defeated in the polls,” the Congress general secretary said.

On the issue of Rs five ‘registration’ fee for Modi’s public meeting in Hyderabad, Singh said, “It is all bogus! The BJP itself will deposit the fee and later claim that so many people attended it. They are masters in manipulating things.”

Replying to a question on Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan’s act of sporting a skull cap on the occasion of Eid, Singh said, “Whether he wears a red cap or black, Congress has nothing to do with it. This is their job.”

The senior Congress leader also alleged that “rampant corruption” took place in the implementation of the special package of Bundelkhand region (of Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh) under the Backward Region Grant Fund, which was sent to the state on the initiative of Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi.” When asked, Singh said he was not interested in becoming Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister again. “But I am working in the state to ensure that Congress comes back to power,” he added.
