Congress party which has been accusing government on various issues has become a controversy after the release of a video in which senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh is saying that his party’s votes will be reduced if he campaigns for it.
A video which was recorded on October 13, released and went viral on the day when Congress President was in poll-bound Madhya Pradesh to campaign for the coming election.
The two-time former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh Mr Singh said “.. mera kaam keval ek. Koi prachar nahi, koi bhashan nahi. Mere bhashan dene se to Congress ke vote kat-te hai, mai jata nahi” (I have only one job, no campaigning, no speech. When I deliver a speech, Congress votes get reduced, so I don’t go),” in the video.
Digvijay Singh has been observed missing in in the programmes and rallies which Gandhi has been addressing in the state over the last few weeks which reflects the gravity in his words.
Singh even adviced the party leaders and workers to work hard to get in the power. The video displayed that he was at the residence of MLA Jitu Patwari and was talking casually to party workers.
When asked about the truth of the video, Mr Singh denied and said that it was shown in the wrong manner.
Chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan took a dig at the Rahul-led party and asked them to not treat their senior leaders in this way. He added that he(Digvijay Singh) had been absent in the posters and had not been given any importance.
Mr Chouhan even showed grief and shock for the behaviour of Congress party towards its senior leader.
The BJP ruled Madhya Pradesh would see polls for the 230-member MP Assembly on November 28 and counting is scheduled on December 11.
All the political party leaders are visiting the state for rallies to woo the state people to get votes in the coming election.
