New Delhi: In remarks that could spark
controversy, Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Friday said it is
"high time" Marshals are used to ensure smooth functioning of
Parliament.
"Another day wasted in Parliament. It hasn`t used
Institution of Marshals in Parliament since 2004 to make it
function. High time they did !" Singh remarked on the
micro-blogging community site Twitter.

The Congress General Secretary`s tweet came as the first
week of Winter Session was a complete wash out due to frequent
interruptions on a variety of issues ranging from price rise,
corruption to FDI in retail

In another tweet, Singh wondered whether there was a
connect between the statement of BJP leader Yashwant Sinha
that rising prices could lead to violence and Anna Hazare`s
remark of "only one slap" over the assault on Union Minister
Sharad Pawar.
"Strongly condemn cowardly attack on Sharad Pawarji.
Yashwant Sinha`s statement, this incident, Anna`s reaction. Is
there a connect?," Singh said.

"Never expected Anna to react the way he did to Sharad
Pawar incident. It certainly was not a Gandhian Reaction."

In two more tweets, the AICC general secretary continued
the argument.

"Tie up people and beat them up if they drink liquor,
send people to mental asylum whom you don`t agree, hang
people without trial .

"Are we moving into a Fascist Mode? Throw rose petals on
Police Officers accused in false encounter, beat up people
whom you don`t agree with," he said.
