Bhopal: It is a fact that election campaigning can throw up some surprising and funny incidents. Candidates who are not careful could end up looking embarrassed. Bhopal Congress candidate, Digvijay Singh, had to face such an incident today while speaking to a crowd.
The senior Congress leader while speaking to Congress supporters asked if they got Rs. 15 lakh from Narendra Modi. He pointed to a youth and asked him to come on stage and say if he received the money.
The youth promptly walks up to the microphone and says that Narendra Modi did surgical strikes and killed terrorists. The unexpected reply by the youth surprises Digvijay Singh who fails to react for a few seconds.
Soon the two-time Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh shoos the youth away and Congress workers push him off from the stage.
Digvijay Singh is locking horns with firebrand BJP entrant Pragya Singh Thakur, who is proving to be a formidable opponent to the Congress warhorse.
Pragya Singh Thakur’s candidature in Bhopal has a lot of significance because it was Digvijay Singh who was the main proponent in coining the term “Hindu Terror” to malign Hinduism.
