Digvijay urges CM not to contest if BJP loses MP elections
Badwah: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh said here on Wednesday that in case the BJP fails to win this year`s Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, then Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan should take a pledge not to contest elections for ten years.
"Before the 2003 Assembly elections in the state, I had taken a pledge not to contest for ten years if the Congress lost them and I have stuck to it," he said at a function to unveil the statue of former minister Amolak Chand Chhajed at Karhi, around 30 km from here.
Later, while talking to reporters, Singh avoided a question on whom the Congress would project as chief minister before Assembly elections.
The former chief minister alleged that MP`s law and order was deteriorating, crime was rising and the state government protected criminals and the mafia.
