Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh, who is on 3,300 km Narmada Parikrama (circumabulation of the river Narmada), has entered Gujarat with his companions.
Singh started his journey, on foot, from the Brahman Ghat at Narsinghpur in Madhya Pradesh on September 30.
Talking to reporters after arriving at the Shoolpaneshwar temple near Sardar Sarovar dam at Kevadiya yesterday, Singh said he wouldn’t discuss politics.
He would be walking through 20 Assembly constituencies in poll-bound Gujarat, including tribal-dominated ones like Nandod, Dediapada, Jhagadia and Netrang where polling would be held on December 9.
The people of Gujarat know what is right and what is wrong and he hoped they would elect a government which believed in truth and not in false propaganda, the Congress leader said.
Singh also said that the Parikrama, which comes a year ahead of the polls in his home state, Madhya Pradesh, was a purely religious and spiritual exercise.
