Clarify if Digvijay is in Cong or not: MP BJP asks Sonia

Bhopal, Jul 15, 2013 (PTI):

Taking a dig at Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh, the Madhya Pradesh unit of BJP today asked Congress President Sonia Gandhi to clarify if the senior leader is in the party or not, since it keeps distancing itself from his statements.

"Congress president should clarify first whether Singh is in the party or not, as whenever he makes any statement related to the party or Rahul Gandhi, the party through its spokesman distances itself from his (Singh's) comments," BJP general secretary in-charge of Madhya Pradesh Anant Kumar told reporters here.

Kumar along with the RSS pointsman in the BJP, Ramlal arrived here to review Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's 'Janashirwad Yatra' campaign scheduled to begin from Ujjain on July 22 and the 'Karyakarta Mahakumbh' to be held on September 25 in Bhopal, on the occasion of Jan Sangh leader Pandit Deen Dayal Upadhay's birth anniversary.


Referring to the issue of secularism raised by the Congress to counter the BJP, he alleged that "the party always takes shelter under pseudo-secularism to deviate people's attention from issues of rising inflation, corruption and feeling of insecurity."He said that parliament session date is announced well in advance, but this time it is still not clear that whether it will be held in August or even in September.

"It appears that they are afraid to face Parliament," Kumar remarked and added that probably due to this reason, instead of bringing the proposed Food Security Bill, the Congress-led UPA has chosen the ordinance route to pass it."Therefore, the BJP feels that Lok Sabha elections may take place soon," Kumar said, adding that the party is already in election mode and will contest polls on the issues of good governance, development and people's welfare by highlighting the good work being done in the BJP-ruled states.

In Madhya Pradesh, he said, the BJP will focus its campaign on the achievements of Chouhan's government in the last nine years and compared it with the ten years of Congress rule led by then state chief minister Digvijay Singh.

Commenting on the opposition party's condition in Madhya Pradesh, he said that it is so bad that even Congress Legislature Party's (CLP) Deputy Leader Choudhary Rakesh Singh Chaturvedi, who had joined the saffron party recently, said on the floor of the house that if he remains with the Congress, then it would be an injustice to the people of the state.
