Congress’s Bhopal candidate and a former chief minister of Madhya Pradesh Digvijaya Singh expressed regret as he could not travel to Rajgarh to vote in the sixth phase of the ongoing Lok Sabha polls on Sunday.

“Yes I couldn’t go to vote to Rajgarh and I regret it. Next time I will register my name in Bhopal,” said Singh.

Singh is contesting the Bhopal seat, which the Congress has not won since 1984, where his rival is BJP’s Pragya Singh Thakur.

The Congress leader is a registered voter at his hometown Raghogarh, a part of Rajgarh parliamentary constituency.

Rajgarh and Bhopal both went to polls on Sunday. Raghogarh is about 136 kilometres north west of Bhopal.

Digvijaya Singh was seen visiting from one polling centre to another in Bhopal to motivate the party workers engaged as agents at polling stations and ensure that more and more people turn up at the polling booths to cast their votes.

When asked by media persons in the afternoon if he would go to Raghogarh to cast his vote he said, “I will try to reach”.

He couldn’t go to Raghogarh till the evening. When asked he said, “I didn’t vote but I ensured there is more polling.”

However, his wife Amrita Rai, who is a voter in Bhopal, cast her vote.
