‘Nothing but a sin’: PM Modi on Digvijaya Singh not voting


New Delhi, May 13: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday took a dig at senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh for not exercising his franchise in Rajgarh parliamentary constituency on Sunday.

Despite being a registered voter in home town Raghogarh assembly segment of Rajgarh seat (which neighbours Bhopal), the Congress candidate didn't travel to Rajgarh to vote for close aide and Congress candidate Mona Sustani, as he was preoccupied with zipping through polling booths.

"His (Singh's) arrogance came to light yesterday in Bhopal. When people are electing their representatives and even I exercised my franchise in Ahmedabad, Diggy Raja neither cared for democracy nor people," he said in remarks laced with sarcasm.

"You (Singh) were very busy asking people to vote... save me. Why you are so frightened of losing your job?" the prime minister asked.
