Political fight turns physical as Digvijay slaps BJP workers

By Biswajeet Panda
Digvijay Singh
Ujjain, Jul 18: Digvijay Singh hails from a royal family and he gave ample evidence of his warrior lineage when he slapped some activists of the Bharatiya Janata Party's youth wing. The activists of the Bharatiya Janata Yuva Morcha (BJYM) were waving black flags at him during his visit to Ujjain on Jul 17.

According to reports, the activists were protesting the Congress leader's statement that he did not rule out the involvement of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh in the July 13 blasts in Mumbai.

Speaking about his physical attack on the activists, Diggy Raja, as he is referred to by the media, said, “I have said nothing wrong that deserves black flags...I am not weak."

According to reports, the Congress General Secretary's motorcade was moving through the Juna Somwaria area when he noticed a few young people standing on the roadside with garlands. But just as he stopped his car to appreciate their gesture, a group of activists who emerged from hiding with black flags, began to heckle him.

Digvijay Singh lost his cool and began chasing the men and even managed to slap some. In between, stick-wielding Congress workers had already arrived on the scene and joined Singh in chasing out the BJYM activists.

The humiliated BJYM activists later ransacked a hotel that the former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister was to inaugurate.

For Digvijay Singh, this was certainly not the first time that he beat up his political adversaries. In 2006, he had punched a protester of the Kshatriya Mahasabha in Ujjain. But all this certainly leaves a bad taste in the mouth and is a clear evidence of the degrading moral values in our politicians of these days.
