Bhopal: Some unknown persons stone Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh’s house yesterday night in Bhopal. Although the security arrangment has been made more strict, no case has been registered so far.
Yesterday, the Congress leader had said “Baba Ramdev is a thug who is misleading the nation.”
Not among those astounded by Baba Ramdev’s contentious eviction from Delhi where he was on a hunger strike against corruption in the government, Digvijaya Singh had said, “We can’t allow someone like Ramdev to run riot in Delhi. He had permission only to run a yoga camp. He was trying to incite people.”
At around 1 am on Sunday, police had lathicharged and teargassed the Baba’s 65000 supporters who had gathered for his “satyagraha” at Ramlila Maidan.
Digvijaya Singh has frequently spoken against the Baba and his attempts to force the government to launch a mission to recover crores of black money from foreign bank accounts.
The government was engaged in fraught negotiations with the Baba for most of last week. But the talks between the government and the Baba crashed on Saturday night with both sides citing betrayal.
