Explaining their conditions for believing in Modi's words, Digvijay Singh said, "If the BJP comes to power Modi should do away with tainted minister like Bokadia and his close aide Amit Shah. Only then one can trust Modi."
Digvijay's comment on Modi surfaced following the latter's recent remark in which he said, "After May 16, I will form a committee and I will not spare even the BJP or NDA people. I will ask the SC to begin trial immediately and put them in jail and make Parliament free from criminals."
Meanwhile, Union Minister and Congress leader Kapil Sibal slammed Modi over his latest tweet expressing his disapproval of comments by party leaders and supporters like Praveen Togadia and Giriraj Singh.
Narendra Modi has a forked tongue. This is all politics: Kapil Sibal
Sibal on Tuesday, April 22 said, "He himself gives such statements, he has a forked tongue. This is all politics."
In his tweet from his Twitter account, Modi said, "I disapprove any such irresponsible statement & appeal to those making them to kindly refrain from doing so. Petty statements by those claiming to be BJP's well-wishers are deviating the campaign from the issues of development & good governance (sic)."
However, BJP leaders defended Modi. Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi was quoted as saying, "We are going to elections on development, good governance and issues. Modi has tweeted because we feel that the elections should be on issues. Congress is trying to divert the attention and deviate from main issues."
