Congress contemplating to field Digvijaya Singh in BJP stronghold in upcoming elections: Reports

Is Congress now treating its senior leader Digvijaya Singh as a sacrificial lamb by asking him to fight the elections from the seats which are considered as BJP bastions?

If reports are to be believed, Madhya Pradesh Congress wants the senior Congress member and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh to fight from one of the BJP bastions of Bhopal, Ujjain, Vidisha or Indore. However, Digvijaya Singh is inclined to fight the elections from the Rajgadh seat, touted to be a Congress stronghold.

As per the ABP News report, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath wants Digvijaya Singh to fight from the toughest seats in the state and hence is contemplating to have him fight from Bhopal or Indore. Apart from this, Jyotiraditya Scindia wants to contest from Gwalior seat instead of the Guna seat, but CM Kamal Nath wants him to contest from the Guna seat. Though the final decision will be taken by both the leaders after due deliberation.

In the seats which have been finalised, Arun Yadav from Khandwa, Nakul Nath from Chhindwara, Ajay Singh from Sidhi, Rajendra Singh from Satna, Ramniwas Rawat from Murena, Kantilal Bhuria from Jhabua, Meenakshi Natarajan from Mandsaur, Lord Singh from Sagar, Rewa From Siddharth Tiwari, names of Ramkrishna Kusumariya from Damoh have come out. According to reports, the first list is scheduled to come before Holi.

Ever since the new leadership of Congress has come up in Madhya Pradesh, Digvijaya Singh has been conspicuously shunned by the senior Congress leaders as well as its President Rahul Gandhi. Digvijaya Singh and Jyotiraditya Scindia were involved in a verbal spat over the selection of the candidates in the run-up to Madhya Pradesh assembly polls. Digvijaya Singh lately has been a great embarrassment for the Congress. He not only questioned proofs for air strikes in Balakot but also said ‘Murdabad‘ for Congress workers in a constituency where Congress lost.
