Khargone(MP): Slamming BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi for his "toilets first and temples later" remark, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh said here today that this has exposed the difference in the BJP leader's words and deeds.
Referring to Modi as "daadiwale baba" (bearded man) while addressing the Congress Satta Parivartan rally at Mandleshwar near here, the Congress General Secretary said, "Earlier he used to talk about constructing a temple, but now he is talking about making toilets. This has exposed the difference in the BJP leader's words and deeds".
Criticising Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for claiming that no development took place when he (Digvijay) was the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh from 1993 to 2003, the Congress challenged him to an open debate on the issue at any forum of his choice.
Singh also announced that if the Congress comes back to power after the November 25 Madhya Pradesh assembly election, it will waive off farmers' loans upto Rs 51,000, provide free power connections to water pumps for agriculture and take back cases against farmers who were jailed after failing to pay electricity bills.
