Bhopal: 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.
