He is enlisted to vote in the Rajgarh constituency, from where he has traditionally fought the elections. The political slugfest in Bhopal is one of the most interesting battles of this election season. On one hand, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, who has traditionally been fighting elections from Rajgarh constituency and which is considered as his stronghold was relegated by the Congress leadership to fight from the Bhopal constituency. The BJP candidate from the Bhopal constituency is Sadhavi Pragya, who was a victim of the Congress concoction of ‘Hindu Terror‘ and was tortured by his handlers allegedly on the directions of Congress leaders.
Sensing that BJP candidate Sadhavi Pragya might be enjoying an upper hand in Bhopal constituency, which is a BJP bastion, Digvijaya Singh had doubled down on his efforts to campaign for himself. He had even deceptively claimed that Hindu Sadhus in Bhopal are supporting him, only to be later rebuffed by those very Sadhus. The palpable desperation is evident and it explains why Digvijaya Singh could be seen more absorbed in overlooking the polls in the Bhopal constituency rather than visiting Rajgarh to cast his vote.
