Digvijay Singh compares Modi to demon king Ravan
Digvijay Singh has advised Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to "shun vanity" which had led to the fall of the demon king Ravan.
Ahmedabad: After sympathising with Sanjay Joshi following his "forced" exit from BJP, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh has advised Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi to "shun vanity" which had led to the fall of the demon king Ravan.
"If you see Ravan, he had also a good track record of development, he had made Lanka of gold. But the end he met with his pride and ego, everybody knows," Digvijay Singh said on a question of Modi being projected as `Vikas Purush`.
"In the same way Modiji should somewhat understand these things," Singh told reporters at the city airport last night during a private visit.
"He should shun pride and ego and the picture for him will get clear," the Congress leader advised Modi.
To a question on Anna Hazare being called anti-national, Singh said he had seen the letter sent from the PMO to Anna and nowhere it has termed the veteran Gandhian an anti-national.
Singh had recently shown sympathy to former BJP general secretary Sanjay Joshi, who quit the party allegedly due to pressure from Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi.
On June 9, Digvijay had said that Joshi was "framed" in the fake CD scandal.
