Digvijay says Shivraj Singh protecting corrupt ministers

bhopal Updated: Apr 25, 2010 15:08 IST

Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday charged the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan with protecting corrupt ministers in his cabinet.

Talking informally to reporters at his residence here, the Congress General Secretary demanded that Chouhan should seek the resignation of Madhya Pradesh Industries and IT Minister, Kailash Vijayavargiya who is embroiled in a land scam in Indore and against whom the Lokayukta has started investigations.

Referring to reports that a lot of money had been found from president of Medical Council of India Ketan Desai, Singh said that similar amount of money could be found if raids were conducted at the residences of MP Ministers.

When it was pointed out that a special session of the Madhya Pradesh Assembly was being held next month to discuss the concept of 'Golden Madhya Pradesh', the Congress General Secretary said that to see such a State ( Golden MP), he would have to borrow glasses from the Chief Minister.

Asked about the issue of his phone being tapped, Singh said that he has no objection to his phone being tapped.

"I know that the Madhya Pradesh government taps my phone and I have no problem with it," he said.

Responding to a query, the Congress General Secretary said he did not think that the government of Manmohan Singh at the centre would order the tapping of his phone.
