Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh who seems to have become another name for controversy has again made a controversial statement, targeting the leaders of his own party this time.
Mocking all the leaders of the Congress, Singh said that after Jawaharlal Nehru, Congress did not pay much attention to reading and writing. “Pandit Nehru Ji k baad to Congress ne likhne padhne pe bahut jyada dhyan nahi diya. Lekin aaj bhi soch, vichar, likhne, padhne me hum prerna lete hain CPI, CPM, CPIML se bhi (After Pandit Nehru, Congress party did not pay much attention to reading and writing. In fact, we take inspiration for our thoughts from parties like CPI, CPM, and even CPIML)”, said Singh.
As per reports, Digvijay Singh was addressing a meeting in the office of the Communist Party of India when he made the statement.
Digvijay Singh has also extended support to sedition accused Kanhaiya Kumar who is fielded by the Left Parties from Begusarai Lok Sabha constituency. He said that the Rashtriya Janta Dal (RJD) committed a huge mistake in not giving the Begusarai seat to the CPI.
Digvijaya Singh:Main Kanhaiya Kumar ka samarthak hoon.Aur maine apne party mein bhi iss baat ko kaha ki RJD ne bohot badi galti ki hai aur maine koshish ki baat karne ki yeh seat CPI ko dena chahiye. Aur mujhe iss baat ki khushi hai 8 aur 9 ko vo prachar karne Bhopal aaraha hai. pic.twitter.com/acTIbiT1uZ
