Digvijay has sympathy for Prabhat Jha, outgoing state BJP head

Digvijay Singh

Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh today expressed 'sympathy' for Prabhat Jha, who has been denied a second term as Madhya Pradesh BJP president, and said BJP high command should clarify why Jha was being removed.

"Only three days ago, Jha was confident he would be elected again as state BJP president. In such circumstances, my sympathy is with him," Digvijay said here.

On Narendra Singh Tomar, who is likely to be Jha's successor, the Congress leader said, "Tomar is not some new person. He has also held this post earlier, but BJP should give clarification as to why Jha was being removed."

Congress would win the next year's Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh, Digvijay asserted.

He also reiterated that Congress would be declaring its candidates well in advance, as in Uttar Pradesh, so that the candidates could have sufficient time for electioneering.

As to his own plans, Digivijay said he would contest the 2014 Lok Sabha elections from wherever the party asks him to.

Singh had decided to stay away from elections for 10 years after the Congress's defeat in 2003 Assembly elections.
