Digvijay Singh shocked to see his name in BPL list; demands apology

Panaji: On Saturday, AICC General Secretary Digvijay Singh claimed that he and his family were included in the list of Below Poverty Line (BPL) people by the Central and the State (Madhya Pradesh) governments.

He took to Twitter and wrote, “GOMP (Government of Madhya Pradesh) and GOI (Government of India) includes my name, my brother’s name, my son’s name in BPL! We all are income tax payees.”

In his next tweet, the 69-year-old wrote, “We have neither applied nor taken any benefit under BPL. This is a conspiracy against me and my family.”

Also, he demanded an apology and punishment for the guilty.

He said, “Those responsible should apologize and should be punished.”

Singh today headed for Goa to attend the committee meet of the local Congress Unit. The meet will see the veteran discussing important issues with the like-minded parties during the upcoming State Legislative assembly polls.
