Digvijay says he is 'punching bag'
Bhopal, Dec 20: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Friday refused to answer about allegations made against him in the wake of the party's defeat in the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections and described himself as a "punching bag" and a scapegoat.

Addressing a press conference here, the Congress general secretary said that he is used to these sort of allegations and added that he had never replied to them.

"I think that I have become a punching bag at whom people may hurl all sorts of allegations, but I bounce back and return to where I was," Singh said.

Among other things, Digvijay was called a "conspirator" by at least two Congress leaders namely, Satyavrat Chaturvedi and Kalpana Parulekar.

Answering a question, the Congress General Secretary said that he is willing to accept his responsibility for the role he played during the elections.

Congress faced defeat at the hands of BJP in the recent Assembly elections in four states- Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and New Delhi.
