Senior Congress leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh today sought apology from those who allegedly got his and his family member’s name included in the list of Below Poverty Line (BPL) people.

Digvijay Singh today claimed that he and his family members were included in the list of Below Poverty Line (BPL) people by the Central and State (MP) governments.

"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," Singh tweeted Saturday morning before heading for Goa where he is scheduled to attend the coordination committee meeting of the local Congress unit.

The 69-year-old politician tweeted "we have neither applied nor taken any benefit under BPL. This is conspiracy against me and my family."

"Those responsible should apologise and should be punished," Singh further tweeted.
