Digvijaqy and Modi
New Delhi, Nov 12: Congress general secretary Digivijay Singh, who does not leave a single point to criticise Narendra Modi, gave a suggestion to the prime ministerial candidate of Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). This time the former CM of Madhya Pradesh asked Modi to take a help of senior BJP leaders to avoid goof-ups during his speeches.

Digvijay's statement surfaced following Modi's speech in which he mistakenly referred to Shyama Prasad Mookherjee instead of Shyamaji Krishna Varma.

The Gujarat CM, "Shyama Prasad Mookerjee was a revolutionist. He died in 1930. His last wish was that his ashes should be brought to India after independence, and till then, it was in Geneva."

Modi did not waste time to realise his mistake and later apologised for the same

However, according to reports, the Jan Sangh founder died in 1953, not in London, but in Gujarat.

Modi, however, did not waste time to realise his mistake and later apologised for the same. He said, "I wanted to refer to Shyamaji Krishna Varma not Shyama Prasad Mookherjee. I apologise for my mistake."

Despite Modi's apology, Digvijay lashed out at him saying, "I am surprised that BJP didn't find anyone with any knowledge of history to be their PM candidate. Narendra Modi must take a few classes in history with top leaders of BJP."

"If he becomes prime minister and talks the same way at the UN too, what will happen to our respect?" the Congress leader asked.

Earlier Modi's arch rival and his countyerpart in Bihar Nitish Kumar had criticised Modi for allegedly making mistakes while referring to Indian history in his speech. Kumar spoke at the Chintan Shivir organised by JD(U) at Rajgir in Bihar.
