Digvijaya Singh tweets picture of Rajnath Singh's alleged meeting with Malegaon blast accused

New Delhi: Sticking to his claim that Rajnath Singh had met Pragya Thakur, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Saturday posted on Twitter a photo purportedly showing the Malegaon blast case accused seated beside the Home Minister and Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan.

"Do you recognise the two BJP leaders with Pragya Thakur? Would Rajnath ji and Shivraj ji please respond?," the Congress General Secretary said in a series of tweets along with the photograph. However, it was not clear when the purported photograph was taken.

Digvijaya's reaction came after BJP termed as "baseless" his claim that Rajnath Singh had met Pragya Thakur in 2008, when the BJP was in opposition.

The Congress leader, who has in the past too made similar claims which Rajnath Singh had then denied, raked up the issue after BJP targeted him over a 2012 video showing him praising controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, who has come under government scrutiny after reports emerged that terrorists involved in Dhaka attack were inspired by him.

Taking a dig over the video issue, Digvijay tweeted "Four-year-old issue of my sharing the stage with Zakir Naik who doesn't have a case against him played on the National Media for more than 3 days! Double standards."

"Modi Bhakts and Sanghi elements in Media have always been very kind and considerate towards me. Thanks for free Publicity and keeping me in news Dig out some more such cases. Put your full Team to find everything against Digvijaya (sic) !", he said in a series of tweets.

Digvijaya also raked up the issue of journalist Ved Pratap Vaidik meeting JuD chief Hafiz Sayeed in Pakistan by posting a photo of the meeting.
