Digvijay’s detention in Bengaluru Hitlarshahi by BJP: MP CM


PTI, Mar 18, 2020, 12:24 PM IST

Bhopal: Congress leader Digvijay Singh’s detention by police in Bengaluru is display of “dictatorship and Hitlarshahi” by the BJP, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath said here on Wednesday.

Singh staged a protest near a Bengaluru resort this morning where rebel MLAs of Madhya Pradesh Congress are staying, and demanded that he be allowed to meet them.

Singh, who has been detained by the police, accused the BJP of holding the MLAs captive and said that he would go on a “hunger strike”.

Reacting to this, Nath said if the need arises he would also go to the Karnataka capital.

“Preventing Congress Rajya Sabha candidate and other ministers from meeting MLAs, misbehave with them, forcibly taken them into custody is totally a dictatorship and hitlershahi (sic),” Nath said in a tweet.

“Entire country is watching how an elected government is being made unstable and how BJP is murdering democratic values,” Nath said.

“Why they are not allowing them to meet MLAs. What BJP is afraid of. BJP is playing a dirty political game in the state,” the chief minister tweeted.

Demanding immediate release of detained Congress leaders, Nath said that democratic norms and Constitutional values are being stifled.

Later speaking to reporters, the CM said, “Why the BJP is afraid of presenting 16 MLAs here (Bhopal)? What is the problem in one person (Singh) meeting with 16 legislators?”

Nath reiterated that his government had proven majority on floor of the House in the last 15 months since coming to power.

Amid political uncertainty in Madhya Pradesh, the state Congress Legislature Party on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court seeking direction to the Centre and the BJP-led Karnataka government to grant it access to communicate with its rebel MLAs staying in Bengaluru.

The apex court had also directed the Kamal Nath government to respond by Wednesday to a plea by senior BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan seeking immediate floor test in the Assembly.
