Bhopal, July 26: Although he is suffering from slip of the tongue syndrome, this time, the outspoken Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh embroiled himself into a new controversy.
The alleged sexist remark was made when 66-year-old Digvijay was addressing a crowd in Mandasur. He said, ""She is your Member of Parliament. She is a Gandhian, she is simple and honest...she goes to everybody, from village to village. I have 40-42 years of experience (in politics) and I am an old connoisseur...politicians come to understand things even with little hint as to who is genuine and who is a fraud. She is 100% tunch maal and fights for the poor."
"...she doesn't get into groups (within the party) in Mandsaur, she takes everybody along. She has made a mark in Delhi as well, inside the Lok Sabha and within the party. Soniaji and Rahulji hold her in high esteem; leaders like Digvijay (referring to himself) also fear her. She is your MP, so give her full support."
Interestingly, 40-year-old Meenakshi Natarajan was also present at the gathering when the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister, Digvijay Singh was 'showering praise' on her rising popularity.
