Allotment of land to Asaram was a ‘mistake’: Digvijay
Congress leader Digvijay Singh has said he committed a ‘mistake’ by allotting land to Asaram Bapu, who is facing rape charges, during his tenure as chief minister and demanded that BJP government cancel the lease.
‘Allotment of land to Asaram Bapu was a mistake and I regret it,’ Digvijay, who has been accusing BJP leaders of ‘protecting’ the controversial self-style godman, said.
He was addressing a farmers’ meeting organised by the Congress at Susner in Shajapur district on Saturday.
Singh, who was chief minister of Madhya Pradesh from 1993 to 2003, had allotted land to Asaram for developing his ashram in Indore.
