Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh is seemingly having a tough time dealing with the candidature of Sadhvi Pragya. The Sadhvi who unwittingly became a pawn in Congress’ petty games while the party tried to concoct the ‘saffron terror’ bogey and languished in prison for a little short of a decade has been fielded against Digvijay Singh in Bhopal, the very man who was instrumental in building the theory of ‘saffron terror’.
Digvijay Singh is the same individual who was present at the launch of the book 26/11-RSS ki Saazish. The book basically insinuated that the Mumbai terror attack by Lashkar-e-Tayyaba was a conspiracy by RSS. He was also, according to former bureaucrat from the Congress government, closely and intimately involved in the careful construction of the lie of ‘saffron terror’.
His utterances have often cost the Congress party dearly and now, with the victim of Congress’ sadism and the man who was involved in the conspiracy have come face to face electorally.
Many have speculated that the Hindu vote in Bhopal might just gravitate towards Sadhvi Pragya en masse. In such a situation, if those predictions are in fact accurate, Digvijay Singh might just face a tough battle.
To that end, Digvijay is now resorting to flat-out lies and deception to give an impression that the Hindu votes are favouring him despite Sadhvi Pragya being his opponent.
Congress leader Digvijay Singh performed a Yagna in Bhopal where several Sadhus were invited. A Hath Yoga was conducted by Computer Baba, seeking success for Digvijay Singh in the Lok Sabha elections. But now the Sadhus who were present in the ritual have revealed that they had nothing to do with the Congress election campaign, and they did not know that the program was organised for political purposes.
At this puja, Computer Baba went on a tirade against the BJP. However, the Sadhus present at the puja who were being touted by Congress as being ‘anti-BJP’ said they had no idea what the puja was for before they got to the event. They said that after coming to the venue they got to know that they have to speak for the Congress party and ensure the victory of Digvijay Singh.
Essentially, the babas were duped. One of the Sadhus said, “We are here because Computer Baba has asked us to be here. We live a life of hermits. We are not here for campaigning for any party. It doesn’t bother us who wins the elections, we will only vote for those who work for us.”
Another Sadhu said, “We are here for Computer Baba. We are not aware of the other things happening here. We are not here for campaigning.”
Now, another incident has come to light that shows how shrewdly Congress is trying to dupe people into believing that the Hindu vote favours Digvijay Singh in Bhopal.
Police personnel in civil clothes were made to wear saffron scarves at Digvijay Singh’s roadshow event.

Saffron, the colour of Hinduism and Hindutva, would certainly give the impression that the Hindu vote in Bhopal favours Digvijay. The truth, however, that was revealed later was that they were police personnel who were “made to wear this”.
Digvijay Singh is trying his best to dupe, deceive and even lie to put up a show. A picture that might make people believe that the Hindu vote is with him and not the Sadhvi who was tortured, imprisoned and falsely implicated by the Congress government to create the ‘saffron terror’ narrative. Whether this illusion works in Digvijay Singh’s favour remains to be seen.
