Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has again found himself in controversy as another video has now surfaced where he has been caught on camera saying ‘Murdabad’ to his own party’s workers who did not support their Bairagarh candidate in the recently concluded Madhya Pradesh elections, reported Republic TV.
According to the reports, Digvijaya Singh, a former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh was addressing his party workers at an event at Bairagarh, where he vented out his anger against those Congress party workers who did not support Naresh Gyanchandani, the Congress’ candidate from the Bairagarh constituency in the 2018 state elections.
“I would like to thank all those who worked for Naresh during the elections and ‘Murdabad’ to those Congress workers who did not support,” said Digvijaya Singh. Digvijaya Singh further welcomed people who had quit BJP to join Congress.
Congress candidate Naresh Gyanchandani had lost the Bairagarh constituency to the BJP’s Rameshwar Sharma. Rameshwar Sharma had secured 1,05,000 votes while Naresh Gyanchandani got just over 91,000 votes.
The Congress party has recently come back to power after 15 years of BJP rule under the leadership of Shivraj Singh Chouhan. It had secured 114 seats while BJP won in 109 seats out of 230 constituencies. Falling one seat short of a majority, Congress had to obtain the support of Samajwadi Party, Bahujan Samaj Party and few independents to form the government.
Digvijaya Singh had also caused controversy during the Madhya Pradesh state elections after a video featuring him had gone viral where he was seen claiming that Congress will lose votes in the upcoming election if he campaigns or gives any speeches. In the past, he had also been in the limelight for spreading fake news.
