Bhopal: Congress general secretary Digvijay
Singh on Friday alleged that there was a tacit understanding
between the BJP and the BSP in Uttar Pradesh.
"The two parties always had a tacit understanding in
Uttar Pradesh," he told reporters here when asked his views on
the BJP and BSP describing party general secretary Rahul
Gandhi`s `padayatra` in UP as a political drama.
On the arrest of a man carrying pistol who was trying to
move close to Rahul during his padayatra, Singh said the
Special Protection Group was looking into the matter.
Reacting to religious leader Asaram Bapu`s alleged remark
that Congress president Sonia Gandhi should be asked to leave
India, he said he would not remain quiet if such statements
The senior leader also demanded an inquiry into the
alleged blackmoney amassed by Madhya Pradesh Ministers.
Crores of rupees are found in raids at the residences of
government officers which indicates the level of corruption in
the state, he added.
Singh said though the BJP talked of looking after the
interests of Muslims, its government in Madhya Pradesh was not
keen on implementing the Sachar Committee recommendations.
"If the BJP is serious about Muslims, it should implement
the Sachar Committee report," he said.
