New Delhi: BJP on Sunday attacked Congress leader Digvijay Singh for his barbs at Narendra Modi over his marital status, saying his comments reflected the "depression" creeping in the ruling party leaders over their "certain" defeat in Lok Sabha polls.
Congress leaders have sunk into "depression of defeat", party spokesperson Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said, and cited Rahul Gandhi`s "baseless" allegation that RSS was behind the murder of Mahatma Gandhi to claim that the ruling party leaders are deliberately raking up irrelevant issues to mislead people.
Singh had attacked the BJP`s prime ministerial candidate over his marital status yesterday.
"I want to ask him if there is slightest respect for women in his heart, why does he leave blank the column where his wife`s name should be written in the election form. Why does not Modi say so if he is not married or he has left her?... How somebody, who cannot respect and take care of his wife, will look after the nation," the Congress general secretary had said.
Naqvi said the personal attack is nothing but an indication of their state of mind. Taking a jibe, he said, "What will be their condition after defeat in election when they are in such state now. Congress leadership should make arrangements for their treatment".
He also took potshots at AAP leader Arvind Kejriwal for the Z category security accorded to him, saying the "international leader" does not accept anything, but the things, whether it is a house or a chartered plane, are forced on him.
He accused Kejriwal of overstaying in government accommodation given to him when he was Delhi Chief Minister.
