With the election due in Madhya Pradesh by later this year, the former Chief Minister and senior Congress leader is making a comeback to the active politics, it appears.
It is in this context, as per sources, that the AICC general secretary Digvijaya Singh exhibited his political strength on Thursday as he courted arrest at a police station in Bhopal.
He was accompanied by his close aides as well apart from thousands of party workers.
The police at the TT Nagar police station, however, gave him in writing that no cognizable offence is registered against him thereby refusing to make a arrest.
Singh took the rally after Madhya Pradesh chief minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan made the remark at a rally where he said that the Congress leader often goes to meet families of slain terrorists and glorifies them.
Singh, who is striving to stay in the limelight, used the comments as an opportunity to pit himself against Chouhan and started a rally from the Congress office in the city.
Digvijay Singh accused Chief Minister Chouhan of not understanding the dignity of his constitutional post and leveling baseless allegations against him.
The Congress co-ordination committee chairman dared CM Chouhan to file a defamation case against him as he openly accused him and his family of involvement in Vyapam scam, nutritious food scam, illegal sand mining and e-tendering anomalies.>
