Bhopal, Oct 11 (UNI) Congress General Secretary and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh today claimed that Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan's regime would collapse after a no-confidence motion was tabled against it.
''The public is extremely disappointed about the anti-people policies of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government. Every social segment is vexed over corruption, power paucity and other anomalies,'' he told reporters here.
Asked why the main opposition party was tabling the motion four years after the 2003 assembly polls, Mr Singh said the regime's two ''wickets'' -- former chief ministers Uma Bharti and Babulal Gaur -- had already fallen and the third wicket would also fall.
''The BJP's vikas (development) yatras in this state will prove to be 'vinash' (destruction) yatras on the lines of the National Democratic Alliance's Uday Bharat slogans. I was given the responsibility of preparing the motion and I have handed it over to the Leader of the Opposition in the Assembly (Jamuna Devi),'' Mr Singh added.
On the Congress raking the same corruption-linked issues raised by the Bharti-led Bharatiya Janashakti, he expressed ''gratitude'' to Ms Bharti's party and added that at its level his party was exposing corruption.
Reacting to BJP state President Narendra Singh Tomar's allegation that Mr Singh unduly benefitted the JP Cement Industry group during his chief ministership, he said, ''The government has all the files of action taken by me and may conduct an inquiry if it desires.'' The Congress bigwig said the public should get an answer about the ''treachery'' perpetrated by Mr Chouhan and his wife, Sadhana Singh, in the vehicles' purchase case and the Congress would take the matter to the people's court.
