Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Tuesday took a dig at Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi for writing directly to the Prime Minister over the Food Security Bill and not raising the issue in his party forum.

“The BJP and its ICON wants to deprive poor of Food Security in India,shows its true colour of being ANTI-POOR. Oppose all pro-poor initiatives. Modi doesn’t trust BJP Parliamentary Party to raise right issues on Food Security Bill,writes directly to PM. No confidence against Sushma?,” Digvijaya Singh commented on microblogging site Twitter.

Singh’s comments came a day after Modi wrote to the Prime Minister seeking a meeting of CMs on the food Bill.

Reacting sharply to the barbs of Singh,senior BJP leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said that his party “condemns” the “low-level politics” by the Congress general secretary.

Prasad also took strong objection to a tweet by the Congress leader that suggested that the BJP was instigating communal riots in non-BJP states.
