Gujarat model only for corporates: Digvijaya Singh

New Delhi, April 9 (IANS) The Gujarat model of development has only benefited corporates, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh said on Saturday.

“There is no concept of social justice in the Gujarat model. Only the rich and big corporate houses have benefited from it. It has not done anything for the Dalits and people from lower castes,” Digvijaya Singh said at a seminar to celebrate the 125th birth anniversary of Babasaheb B.R. Ambedkar.

He said there was a difference of opinion among his ‘own’ men regarding reservation.

“While (Narendra) Modi says reservation would never be removed, his own people in the RSS were against it. Modi himself is from RSS, how can he disagree with their views?” the Congress leader said.

Targeting RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat, he said his politics was only limited to a ‘special class’.

“The RSS’ politics is only limited to Brahmanvad and Hindutva. They are not concerned about development of Dalits,” he added.

Earlier in the day, former Rajasthan chief minister Ashok Gehlot said the central government was misleading the youth of the country.

“They never believed in the ideas of Ambedkar and Mahatma Gandhi. In fact, Gandhi ji was killed by an RSS member. However, today they are celebrating Gandhi and Ambedkar for political dividends,” he said.
