Hyderabad: Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh today took potshots at BJP's chief ministerial candidate in Delhi Kiran Bedi, wondering how she joined a party which she had “attacked just a year ago”.
The AICC general secretary in-charge of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh affairs sought to know whether the IPS officer-turned-politician had “realised the truth about BJP in just one year”.
Bedi, who was a key member of the Anna Hazare-led movement for a strong Lokpal Bill, joined the saffron outfit last week.Stating that Congress had undertaken several infrastructure projects like metro rail, development of roads and welfare of slum-dwellers during its 15-year rule in the national capital, Singh hoped his party would put up a good show in the February 7 elections.
He alleged that the NDA government at the Centre and TRS administration in Telangana were not passing on the benefit of low international oil prices to the consumers. The TRS government has caused burden on the people by imposing additional VAT on petrol and diesel, he charged.
Singh took exception to the TRS encouraging alleged defections into the ruling party. The Congress veteran said his party would deal as per the law the alleged defection of its MLAs.Singh interacted with party leaders and others in Telangana and AP during his visit.
