During his road show, a Times Now journalist asked him how confident he is Digvijaya Singh responded that he does not respond to Republic TV and ‘your channel’ because “you are biased.” When the journalist insisted that they are not biased, Digvijaya continued chanting “you are biased”. All the journalist wanted to know was how confident was Digvijaya Singh of winning against the BJP candidate Sadhvi Pragya Thakur.
The Times Now reporter further reports that Digvijaya Singh’s supporters then pushed him away. The reporter says that Singh has even asked Computer Baba, not to talk to Times Now and Republic reporters.
Singh was the one who had coined the term ‘saffron terror’ during the UPA regime and even released a book which claimed that the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks are an RSS conspiracy. And now he is contesting the elections against Sadhvi Pragya, who was also falsely implicated in the ‘Hindu terror’ bogey under the UPA.
Sadhavi Pragya was hailed by many as a crusader of Hindu revivalism. Many were inspired by her conduct and her commitment to the cause of Hinduism. This didn’t sit well with the Congress party. So Congress concocted ‘Hindu Terror’ and made Sadhavi Pragya its face by nationally vilifying her for her supposed role in Samjhauta Blasts which is yet to be proved in the court of law and in fact, the NIA gave Sadhvi a clean chit in the case too.
