Bhopal: The top Congress leaders are going to keep distance from the scheduled demonstration and court arrest of former Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh at TT Nagar police station of the city on July 26. Earlier, Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, during a press conference in Satna, had said that Singh behaves like a traitor. This led Singh to open a front against Chouhan.
Singh had challenged Chouhan to either prove him a traitor or tender apology. Singh had announced of court arrest too. Congress state president Kamal Nath and MP Jyotiraditya Scindia have kept themselves away from Singh’s challenge. Sources said Nath and Scindia would maintain distance from the court arrest of Singh and demonstration at TT Nagar Police station.
They have not given any reaction on the statement issued by Chouhan against Singh. On the other hand, the government has begun to prepare its strategy to counter Singh’s move. The statement of Chief Minister about Singh has been scrutinized. Singh had also warned of taking the matter to court. Preparations are also on to deal if the matter is taken to court.
Singh’s reaction to CM’s statement has made BJP leaders happy. BJP is constantly trying to put Singh in the front amongst Congress leaders in the coming assembly polls. Congress might have kept Singh in the background but he is coming in limelight on his own. The BJP, on the other hand, is preparing its strategy to attack Singh by publicizing his previous statements.
