Digvijaya slams BJP on Asaram Bapu issue

Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh Sunday accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of adopting double standards on crimes against women and maintaining silence on the case involving Asaram Bapu.

‘The attitude of the BJP is illustrative of double standards (practiced) by them. They cry hoarse on the issue where someone else is involved. But when one of them is involved, they keep quiet,’ Digvijaya Singh said.

The Congress leader also took a dig at Gujarat chief minister Narendra Modi.

‘If Narendra Modi wants the justice to be done... he should make public the judicial commission report on murder of two boys, who were living in Gujarat ashram of Asaram Bapu. Why has he not taken action against the culprits who are involved in this,’ he told a news channel here.

‘I think he (Modi) has become very conscious about his image,’ Digvijaya Singh added.

He questioned why BJP leader Sushma Swaraj, who was vocal on issue of crimes against women, was quiet on a minor girl's allegation of sexual assault against Asaram Bapu.
