"Kum se kum Congress ke log apne neta ki izzat karein, maine socha nahi tha ki Congress apne neta ki yeh durdasha karegi (The Congress should at least respect its own leaders. I never thought that Congress would treat its leaders this badly)," Chouhan told the media today (October 16).

Congress Madhya Pradesh chief Kamal Nath said that the context in which Digvijay made the statement is not clear.

"I don't know in what context he made the statement," Kamal Nath told ANI.

In a video of Digvijay Singh that has surfaced, he can be heard as teloling the party workers, "Be united and work for whichever candidate the party chooses, even if he's your enemy. I avoid public appearances and making speeches because it harms the party."
