MP forest minister claims Digvijay Singh is trying to destabilise Kamal Nath government, writes to Sonia Gandhi

Umang Singhar said Digvijay Singh is running the MP govt from behind the curtain

One of the ministers of Kamal Nath led cabinet in Madhya Pradesh has levelled serious allegations against Congress party veteran and former CM of the state Digvijaya Singh, accusing him of trying to destabilise the Madhya Pradesh government.

Umang Singhar, forest minister in the MP state government has written a letter to Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi Sunday in this context. The letter exposes the infighting within the MP Congress, which the party has been trying to cover.

Singhar has in his letter to Gandhi had written that he was pained to inform her that senior party leader and MP, Digvijaya, was trying to destabilise the Kamal Nath government install him as a power centre.

He further added that Digvijaya was writing letters to the chief minister and his cabinet colleagues and sharing the same on social media platforms.

“He had also written letters to Nath regarding Vyapam, e-tendering and tree-plantation scams, but had not written about Simhast (Kumbh Mela) scam as his son Jaivardhan Singh is heading the urban administration and development ministry. The Congress had made it (Simhast scam) a big issue while it was in the opposition,” the letter stated.

“Such letters give credence to the opposition, including former chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan and leader of the opposition Gopal Bhargava, that Digvijaya is running the government from behind the curtain,” it further read.

Singhar, who is a tribal MLA from Gandhwani seat, also said in the letter, “When he is running the government from behind the curtain, which is known to everyone including the Congress workers, then what was the need to write a letter (to ministers)?”

Singhar confirmed to the PTI about writing the letter to Gandhi. In the same breath, he asked, “What is wrong with it?”

Reports of fiction in the Madhya Pradesh party unit have been surfacing for a while and recently a section of the party workers favouring Jyotiraditya Scindia threatened to mass resign if her was not made the party chief in the state.

Digvijaya, a known Gandhi family loyalist, had recently written to the state ministers for an appointment to seek the updates on the transfers and works recommended by him.

State public relations minister PC Sharma jumped in defense of Digvijaya and his act of writing to the CM and ministers citing his stature as a present Rajya Sabha MP.

“People come to him with their problems and he highlighted them by writing letters,” Sharma said and added, “He did the ‘Narmada Parikrama’ (circumambulation), and a large number of people contact him with their problems. There is nothing wrong in writing letters.”

Sharma who is believed to be a loyalist of Digvijaya rubbished the claims that he was running a parallel government in the state. “It is chief minister Kamal Nath who is running the government and all senior leaders and ministers are supporting him,” he asserted.
