Bhopal (Madhya Pradesh): Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh, on Friday, has demanded strict action against state home minister Narottam Mishra's 'celebrations in Pakistan' remarks. In an attempt to link opposition parties with rival Pakistan, Mishra had said that if any party other than the BJP wins Madhya Pradesh, there'll be celebrations in Pakistan, .

Voting for the 230 seats in the Madhya Pradesh assembly is presently taking place.

Earlier in the day, Mishra said that Pakistan would celebrate if any opposition party wins Madhya Pradesh assembly polls.

Coming down heavily on Mishra, Digvijaya Singh said, "It is a provocative statement. Strict action should be taken against him. The Election Commission of India (ECI) should give notice to him immediately," Digvijaya Singh said.

Making such statements was Mishra's habit, the former chief minister alleged.

Singh claimed that Mishra was the target of an election-related lawsuit that was still pending in court and that, given his behaviour, the minister had no business running for office.

Talking to reporters in Datia earlier, Mishra said, "If any other party wins, then the celebrations will be held in Pakistan. Therefore, it is necessary to press the button of lotus (BJP's election symbol), considering the national interest as supreme. This will strengthen the army on the borders."

Mishra had stated, "If any other party wins, then the celebrations will take place in Pakistan," when speaking with the media in Datia. Thus, keeping the interests of the country above all else, it is imperative that the lotus button—the BJP's election symbol—be pressed. The army at the frontiers will get stronger as a result."
