However, around half a dozen BJP workers spoke to IANS after the meeting was over, they were disappointed by state’s top leadership.
They were annoyed with lectures given by senior leaders. “Nothing was new to learn in the meeting as most of our senior leaders reiterated the same as what we are hearing for last several years,” a Rewa-based BJP workers told IANS on condition of anonymity. Few others present there agreed with him.
Interestingly, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh was one of points of discussion in the BJP’s state working committee meeting. Sources told IANS that Digvijaya’s name was mentioned sever times, not just for criticism but on a positive note as well.
According to sources, MP BJP unit has decided to corner the Congress by highlighting the negatives of Digvijaya Singh’s government in Madhya Pradesh from 1993-2003. A senior BJP leader while speaking on the occasion also advised BJP workers that they should learn commitment and determination for the party from Digvijaya Singh, who despite being a senior leader has been working relentlessly for his party.
Notably, two-time Chief Minister and Rajya Sabha MP Digvijaya Singh has been travelling across Madhya Pradesh for meeting Congress workers and reviewing the party’s preparations at district and booth levels for the assembly elections. Meanwhile, he is also preparing plans to corner BJP’s top leaders in their respective assembly constituencies during the elections.
