Congress leader Digvijay Singh informed that he decided to go on Narmada Parikrama since 1997 and 1998. But now, got opportunity to fulfill his wish. He said, various speculations are being made in political corridors over consequences from different angles. He declared, during Yatra, he would not accept welcome garland and appealed workers not to install banners or flex. He refuted the rumour of begging for meals during the Yatra and said he would stay with his friends and well-wishers.


Declaring himself a committed loyalist of Congress party and its leadership, Digvijay Singh declared his fight against anti-Congress ideology and he would remain loyal to the Gandhi-Nehru family. Lambasting the Chief Minister, Shivraj Singh Chouhan for his recent Namami Devi Narmada Yatra, he termed it an event studded with cine-stars, celebrities and was completed like an entertainment event.

He said, like Prime Minister, the Chief Minister, of Madhya Pradesh has learnt to organise an event every month. Criticizing the Bharatiya Janata Party Union Government at the Centre, Digvijay Singh said the Government and BJP have lost their agenda. In past three years, only policies opposed by them have been executed and failed.

In demonetisation, all the claims made by the Government have failed, while dragging the nation to huge losses. After that, without assessing the change in tax regime and making proper mechanism, the Goods and Services Tax (GST) has been introduced.


Due to lack of proper mindset of citizens and proper arrangements for bringing seachange in tax regime, the GST has failed to serve its purpose. This is having an adverse impact on the GDP rate. Even the top leaders of BJP, including noted economist Murli Manohar Joshi, in his article, pointed out the losses due to demonetisation and GST.


He lastly criticized the Government of Madhya Pradesh and said, it has failed on all fronts. He said, State is having huge debt in the form of overdraft and every citizen of this state is having debt of Rs 21,000 and Government has no answers on use of such big money. He said, Madhya Pradesh has become safe haven for corruption and misuse of power.
