Bhopal: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Friday refused to answer about allegations made against him in the wake of the party`s defeat in the Madhya Pradesh assembly elections and described himself as a "punching bag" and a scapegoat.
Addressing a press conference here, the Congress general secretary said that he is used to these sort of allegations and added that he had never replied to them.

"I think that I have become a punching bag at whom people may hurl all sorts of allegations, but I bounce back and return to where I was," Singh said.

Among other things, Digvijay was called a "conspirator" by at least two Congress leaders namely, Satyavrat Chaturvedi and Kalpana Parulekar.

Answering a question, the Congress General Secretary said that he is willing to accept his responsibility for the role he played during the elections.
