Congress General Secretary, Digvijay Singh and BJP Madhya Pradesh unit president, Prabhat Jha are now engaged in a bitter exchange of words.
The exchange of words began with Jha saying, sometime back, in Indore that it would be an insult to Ravan to compare him (Ravan) with veteran Congress leader, Arjun Singh who was the Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister at the time of the Bhopal Gas disaster of December 1984.
Jha said this, according to him, Arjun Singh had allowed the main accused of the Bhopal gas disaster case, Warren Anderson to leave the country.
Digvijay Singh, on his return from the USA, responded to this by saying that Jha lacks the "aukaat" needed by him to say anything about Arjun Singh.
And as Jha was born in Bihar, the Conress General Secretary described him as an outsider for Madhya Pradesh who had been thrust upon the heads of BJP leaders here.
Jha responded to this by writing a letter to Singh in which he admitted that he was an outsider for Madhya Pradesh but asked Singh to point out from where the Congress president, Sonia Gandhi had come.
