ALL INDIA Congress Committee general secretary Digvijay Singh has declared to intensify attacks on the ruling BJP in Madhya Pradesh for its “anti-people policies, misrule, shortage of fertilisers and corruption” etc by organising statewide rallies and demonstrations.
Talking to reporters here on Wednesday night, Singh said in the struggle against the BJP he would take everyone along without any bias.
He parried questions on simmering differences between him and Member of Parliament Jyotiraditya Scindia and said the Congress will wage a united struggle against the misrule of the BJP. Singh advised State PWD Minister Kailash Vijayvargiya to refrain from making derogatory remarks against Governor Balram Jakhar.
“It is unbecoming of a leader to comment on a senior leader of his father’s age”, he said. He criticised the BJP-led MP government for corruption, lack of facilities to farmers and power crisis etc and said the Panchayati Raj system under the BJP regime has virtually paralysed.
Singh said that according to NHHS survey the graph of malnutrition in several districts including those dominated by Saharia tribals was on the rise. Singh said that though he was not oppose to privatisation, full commercialisation of MPSEB without a human face will do harm to poor public.
Meanwhile, during a short visit to Indore on Thursday he said. “Shivraj Singh Chouhan can grab the opportunity to drop tainted ministers like Kamal Patel and Kailash Vijayvargiya from his cabinet.”

Singh’s remark was in reference to the recent BJP election in which Faggan Singh Kulaste had also expressed intentions to contest for the president’s post.
