NOW, SHIVRAJ Singh Chouhan can grab the opportunity to drop tainted ministers like Kamal Patel and Kailash Vijayvargiya from his cabinet, said All India Congress Committee (AICC) general secretary Digvijay Singh in his inimitable style. He was in the City on a short visit to attend a private function today.
Singh took a dig at Chouhan on the recent incident of the police wielding the baton on National Student Union of India (NSUI) activists when they were trying to burn an effigy of Vijayvergiya.
Taking a serious note of the incident, he said that a detailed report was being prepared and a complaint would be lodged with the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) against police atrocities on a group of peacefully agitating students.
He said that the Congress party never yielded to the arm-twisting tactics of the British and the police atrocities on students would not be able to weaken their resolve in any way.
He said that burning the Prime Minister’s effigy in the presence of police personnel indicated that they were acting as puppets. He alleged that police administration was being used as an instrument to maintain the lawless rule of the BJP government and hide its shortcomings.
Singh also clarified that there was no antagonism between him and Jyotiradtiya Scindia. He said that both are soldiers of the Congress party and are aware of their responsibilities.
He said that both are working in conjunction and would continue to work together in the future for bringing back the Congress rule in the State.
