‘The BJP is doing what the British government did against the fighters fighting for India's freedom in the freedom struggle. Case of sedition was imposed. The whites left the disciples’, Congress MP Digvijay Singh tweeted over the cases filed against Congress MP Shashi Tharoor and some journalists.
