Bengaluru, 18 Mar, 2019: Madhya Pradesh’s Congress leader Digvijaya Singh came to Bengaluru to meet the rebel Congress MP and MLAs.
But he was allegedly stopped by the Karnataka police to meet with rebel Congress MP and MLAs. He said what prompted him to come to the city due to the messages from the families of the lawmakers who have been held “captive” in Bengaluru.
Protesting the police highhandedness, Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh sat on a dharna outside the Ramada hotel, where the rebel MP and MLAs are currently staying, in Bengaluru early Wednesday morning.
In a video clip, it can be seen how the police are trying to remove him from the spot as he resists being evicted. “I’m a Rajya Sabha candidate from Madhya Pradesh, voting is scheduled for March 26. My MLAs have been kept here, they want to speak to me, their phones have been snatched, police are not letting me speak to them saying there is a security threat to MLAs,” said Digvijaya Singh.
