Indore: Senior Congress leader and former Chief Minister Digvijay Singh lashed out at the BJP on the occasion of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. Former MP Digvijay Singh said that the ideology that killed Mahatma Gandhi is asking its activists to take a padyatra in every panchayat for a month.
Digvijay Singh said that I want to ask BJP what those people will do there. He said how would they present Gandhi. Will you talk about Gandhi or Godse in front of the people. Digvijay Singh was addressing the program at Anand Mohan Mathur Auditorium in Indore on the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on Wednesday.
The former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh said that Mahatma Gandhi is being maligned through social media like WhatsApp, Facebook. The way Nathu Ram Godse is being glorified. It is unfortunate for us. Earlier, about the Father of the Nation on Gandhi Jayanti, Digvijay Singh said that Mahatma Gandhi belongs to the country, he is not just of Congress.
He said that Gandhi is an ideology and adopted the tradition of Sanatan Dharma in his life. They liberated the country. Digvijay Singh was indirectly referring to the Pad Yatra to be organized by the BJP on the occasion of 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
It may be known that the BJP has instructed its ministers, MPs and MLAs to take out the yatra on the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti. This Pad Yatra will run from October 2 to October 17. In this 15-day journey, every MP, MLA will have to cover a distance of 10 km each day. Through this yatra, the message of Mahatma Gandhi has been conveyed to the people. The slogan of this ‘Gandhi Sankalp Yatra’ of BJP is ‘Gandhi in mind’.
