Bhopal, Jul 18: Ruling BJP in Madhya Pradesh will file an FIR against Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh and others for allegedly carrying iron rods, sticks in Ujjain yesterday when saffron workers were showing him black flags protesting his anti-RSS remarks.
"The Congress General Secretary was leading armed men, including Ujjain MP, Prem Chand Guddu, who was carrying a stick with him and the District President who was carrying iron rod and followed Singh when he was chasing protesting BJP/RSS workers," State BJP President Prabhat Jha told a press conference here.
Jha also showed photographs to mediapersons in which Singh was seen chasing saffron workers. However, Singh himself was not carrying anything.
Asked whether BJP will file an FIR against Singh on the issue, he said "BJP will file an FIR against him in this regard."
Jha said it appears that Singh in a conspiracy to defame BJP Government one day may get himself attacked by his own men and asked the state government to keep an eye on this possibility.
He also said what was the need for him to make such a controversial remark on the Mumbai blasts (involving RSS) when the probe has just begun. Obviously, the intention was to divert the attention of the probe agencies, Jha added.
The BJP leader challenged Singh to prove his allegations that RSS was involved in terror acts and added that if he proved it then he would leave the organisation and in case Singh was unable to do so, then he should apologise to the nation.
Jha said Madhya Pradesh has no place for violence as it is not the culture of the state but Singh, by indulging in such acts, is taking the state in that direction.
The BJP leader said he would provide these photographs not only to the Chief Minister but also to the party leaders at Delhi.
He alleged Congress, after losing three by-polls and realising that its defeat is certain in 2013 assembly polls, has chosen the path of bullet over ballot to fulfil its designs.
It was an attempt to disrupt the communal harmony in the state as a large number of Muslims were getting attracted towards BJP in the state, he claimed.
