Digvijaya miffed over Sanjay Singh Masani joining Congress

November 08, 2018 12:13

Just when the Congress party appeared to get things under control in Madhya Pradesh, a new set of issues have cropped up. Former chief minister Digvijaya Singh is unhappy he was against Sanjay Singh Masani (brother-in-law of Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan) joining the Congress, but nobody seemed to bother about his argument. 

Singh's point was that the move would damage the party's image because Congress leaders have, in the past, accused Masani of corruption. Digvijaya also alleged that Masani had no political stature his only achievement was he was the brother of the CM's wife (Sadhna Singh). The backstory is that Masani had sought a ticket from the Waraseoni (Balaghat) seat but Chouhan had turned down the request the reason why Masani quit the Bharatiya Janata Party.
