Digvijay Singh takes on Anil Ambani



Indore: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Tuesday termed as "shameful" industrialist Anil Ambani's comparison of Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan to his late father Dhirubhai Ambani.

Addressing a youth Congress function, Singh said he read in newspapers today that Anil reportedly compared Chouhan to his father.

"For me, such a statement is nothing but shameful," he said, adding there was no way Chouhan could be compared to Dhirubhai, who started out as a petrol-pump attendant and went on to become the country's biggest industrialist.

The ADAG chairman made the statement only because he wanted to exploit the natural resources of Madhya Pradesh for his business interests, Singh alleged.
