Why did BJP leader touch Swaraj's feet, asks Cong MLA
Senior Congress MLA, Ajay Singh on Sunday accused Madhya Pradesh BJP President Prabhat Jha of "double standard", after newspaper pictures showed Jha touching the feet of the leader of Opposition in the Lok Sabha, Sushma Swaraj.
"Jha had, at the BJP's Gaurav Diwas function, asked the party workers not to touch anyone's feet because this was a 'Congress practise'," Ajay told PTI.
The Congress MLA said that this only showed there was a lot of difference between what Jha "said and did".
"It is obvious now that he preaches one thing and does the exact opposite," Ajay said.
Singh said this was always a "problem with the BJP".
