Digvijay's remarks reflect frustration: BJP

Narendra Modi
New Delhi, Sep 14: BJP today hit back at Digvijay Singh over his barbs at Narendra Modi and RSS, saying they reflected Congress' "frustration" over the Gujarat Chief Minister's popularity.

"He may say whatever he wants to, but why I should take his comments seriously, when his own party does not," Ravi Shankar Prasad, the party's deputy leader in Rajya Sabha, said.

Taking a jibe at Singh, Prasad said that he was speaking out of frustration as opinion polls have shown Modi as the leading contender for the prime minister's chair while Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi figured nowhere near him.

"People want Modi, they love him. He (Singh) may say whatever he wants to," Prasad said. Singh in a tweet had said, "BJP succumbs to threats of RSS and Ramdev and declare Modi as BJP's PM candidate. Do we still call RSS as a Cultural Organisation?" He said Modi had ditched all leaders, including LK Advani, who once supported him.
