Former Madhya Pradesh chief minister and Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh on Sunday campaigned for the party candidate from Kurukshetra, Naveen Jindal and said the latter has effectively represented his constituents both inside and outside Parliament for the last two terms.

While making a strong appeal to public to vote in favour of Jindal, Digvijaya Singh said he has proved his mettle and is not only an effective parliamentarian but also a social worker. Jindal has worked relentlessly for the welfare of all sections of society, Singh said, adding that people will re-elect him for the third consecutive term.

Naveen Jindal said he always had the privilege of being guided by Digvijaya Singh. He added that under the guidance and leadership of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and chief minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Haryana has witnessed unprecedented development.

Taking a dig at the Gujarat chief minister and BJP's PM nominee, Digvijaya Singh said Narendra Modi neither knows the history nor the geography of the country and makes false claims wherever he goes. He added that Modi's politics is based on communal hatred. Singh said Modi lied that Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel was absent during the last rites of Jawaharlal Nehru whose pictures the Gujarat CM posted on Twitter. He criticised Modi for betraying every single person who has nurtured him and helped him move forward, including Shankarsinh Vaghela, Keshubhai Patel, Kashiram Rana, LK Advani, Murli Manohar Joshi and it won't be long before Rajnath Singh joins this list.

The Congress general secretary addressed public in Rajound, Shahabad and Radaur areas of Kurukshetra parliamentary constituency and said the Congress is the only party, which has worked for the uplift of people and started schemes for welfare of all sections of society.

"Not only have these but development in the country reflects the Congress' efforts in this regard. It was Rajiv Gandhi's vision that today there are 90 crore mobile connections in the country and the resultant IT and telecom revolution has transformed the country by benefiting millions of Indians," Singh said.
