Indore: Targeting BJP over Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat’s statement that everyone is unhappy and protesting even after having worldly comfort, former chief minister and senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Sunday said that only Prime Minister Narendra Modi and union home minister Amit Shah are happy in the country.
“What Bhagwat said is right. Everyone is unhappy and protesting in the country and everyone knows why everyone is unhappy. Corporate sector is unhappy, businessmen are unhappy, teachers are unhappy but Modi and Shah are happy,” he told mediapersons here on Sunday.
Singh added that the government is bringing in CAA, NPR, and NRC to divert people’s attention from basic issues like inflation and unemployment.
“We have challenged CAA and NPR in Supreme Court and will continue protest against the unnecessary law. As for showing documents in NPR, I will not show any document as the government already has all my information through various cards,” he said.
The former chief minister also criticised Delhi police for beating students in library of Jamia University and said this is what Congress leaders had been saying that police had brutally thrashed innocent children.
To a query, Singh said new state Congress president will be appointed soon.
What (RSS chief) Bhagwat said is right. Everyone is unhappy and protesting in the country and everyone knows why everyone is unhappy. Corporate sector is unhappy, businessmen are unhappy, teachers are unhappy but Modi and Shah are happy
Teerth Darshan Yojana won’t be scrapped: Sharma
State public relations minister PC Sharma on Sunday said Mukhyamantri Teerth Darshan Yojana will not be scrapped and will be launched soon. It was stopped temporarily due to technical glitches.
General administration department minister Govind Singh had opposed the scheme a few days back, saying scheme funds should be used for improving health care and education in the state.
Talking to media on the sidelines of a programme, Sharma also targeted Shivraj Singh Chouhan for opposing IIFA awards. He said Shivraj must learn what IIFA is. He left a debt of Rs 2 lakh crore on the government and now is talking about government expenses.
Sharma also said that there is no dispute in the party and all the issues were discussed and addressed during the coordination committee meeting in New Delhi.
