Only Women Over 40 Are Influenced By Modi, Not Girls Who Wear Jeans: Digvijaya Singh

Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh kicked up another controversy by claiming that women over 40 to 50 years of age are more influenced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

He made the remarks at a Jan Jagran camp in Bhopal while addressing the Congress workers.

In a purported video, Singh is heard saying who are impressed by PM Modi and who are not. Singh said, “Priyanka Gandhi Vadra said something interesting; women who are 40 to 50 years old are slightly more influenced by PM Modi, but girls who wear jeans and keep mobiles are not affected.”

The BJP objected to Digvijaya Singh’s statement about PM Modi, saying the Congress leader “has lost his mental balance”.

BJP MLA Rameshwar Sharma said, “Digvijaya Singh has lost his mental balance with his age. He has this low level of thinking about women. Digvijaya Singh is now passing through a phase of madness. I ask Sonia Gandhi why such a person is kept in the party? This is the same Digvijay Singh who had called Meenakshi Natarajan, a former Congress MP, as Tanch Mal. Women are worshipable and revered, doing politics in their name does not suit.”

On Saturday, Digvijaya Singh had targeted Sarvakar, claiming that he never considered a cow as ‘maata’ and had no problem with consuming beef.

“Veer Savarkar, in his book, said that Hinduism has nothing to do with Hindutva. He never considered cow as ‘maata’ and had no problem in consuming beef,” Digvijaya Singh said at a Congress event in Bhopal.

Union Minister Pralhad Joshi slammed Digvijaya Singh for his remark on Veer Savarkar. “Digvijaya Singh made a very irresponsible statement. Now that he doesn’t have any major role in Congress party’s decision making, he’s saying all this to be in the limelight. It’s utter rubbish.”
