Digvijaya Singh, senior Congress leader, challenged India’s Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Home Minister Rajnath Singh and the Chief Minister of Maharashtra Devendra Fadnavis to take action against him in the Elgar Parishad case.
His words came in response to Pune police’ statement regarding the seizure of a letter in connection to the Elgar Parishad case, which apparently had his phone number mentioned. Written by an alleged Naxal operative, the letter is dated September 25 2017.
Through Rajya Sabha’s portal, Mr Singh argued that his mobile number has been in the public domain and is known by thousands of people. He further added that he had stopped using that number for four years now.
Singh said, “If Digvijaya Singh is involved in any anti-national activity, then Modiji, Rajnathji and Fadnavisji are free to take action. Show the courage to take action”.
As reported by PTI, Shivaji Bodkha – Pune joint commissioner said, “As of now, the Pune police are not investigating any case against any politician, the focus now is on the arrested activists and activities of the banned organisation”.
According to the Pune police, several numbers were found in letters acquired during raids. No summons for questioning have been issued in the connection.
