Taking a jibe at Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi, Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh has said that his (Modi’s) stature was now ahead of his own party and the RSS.
Dubbing Modi as a political leader of “hard core communalist ideology,” Digvijaya said “now Modi is ahead of the BJP and the Sangh.”
He was talking to reporters on Monday night when he had come to attend a marriage function in Indore.
Singh also rapped the BJP over Gujarat government’s Rs 10.80 per day income norm for Below Poverty Line (BPL) card holders.
“When the Planning Commission had fixed such a standard, the BJP had raised a hue and cry,” he said, adding that BJP president Rajnath Singh should reply over Gujarat government now setting a standard for defining poverty.
Alleging that Modi was a political leader of “hard-core communalist ideology,” he claimed that the BJP’s prime ministerial nominee had honoured those accused in the Muzaffarnagar riots.
Singh also claimed that 60 per cent of the posts in favour of Modi on social networking sites were “fake.”
