Former Madhya Pradesh chief minister and Congress MP Digvijaya Singh said on Wednesday accused the Centre of creating violence during farmers’ tractor rally on the Republic Day in Delhi. “It was a sponsored programme of the central government to derail the farmers’ protest in Delhi,” he said.
He spoke during the media briefing to media persons in Ujjain on Wednesday, Singh particularly blamed Union home minister Amit Shah for the violence. “The violence in the tractor rally of farmers in Delhi was sponsored by home minister Amit Shah. The protestors were not Khalistanis and Pakistanis, they were government officials selected by Amit Shah.”
“One of the accused was found to be close to BJP Member of Parliament (MP) Sunny Deol and has pictures with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. It was a sponsored programme of the Central government to derail the farmers’ protest in Delhi,” said Singh.The ruling BJP hit back at Singh and accused him of playing politics with Tuesday’s events.
He further said, the anti-social elements created ruckus in the name of farmers. Police personnel were beaten up very badly. They insulted our country and the Tri-colour. Rather condemning the act of protestors, Digvijaya Singh is doing dirty politics,” Madhya Pradesh’s medical education department minister Vishwas Sarang said.
