Four days after the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) announced the withdrawal of Rs 2,000 notes from circulation, Congress Rajya Sabha member Digvijaya Singh targeted the central government.
He said that the government should first answer the question as to why the Rs 2,000 note was introduced?
When asked about the decision to withdraw notes of this denomination from circulation, Singh told reporters in Indore, “First they (the central government) should tell why they brought these notes?”
In a major decision ahead of the assembly elections to be held later this year, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government of Madhya Pradesh on Tuesday announced that all unauthorized colonies developed in the state will be regularized by December 31, 2022.
Singh, who was the chief minister of the state, termed this announcement as meaningless and said, “They (the state’s BJP government) have made such announcements thousands of times.” Where is the notification to regularize unauthorized colonies?
Union Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, during a recent program in Shivpuri, while expressing affinity to the audience, said that his heart beats for the local people.
During this, he also said with folded hands that he apologizes for the mistakes he may have made. The video of this statement of Scindia has been widely circulated on social media.
Taking a jibe at Scindia, Singh said, “It is good that he is apologizing for his mistakes after realizing them.”
Significantly, the then Kamal Nath-led government fell on March 20, 2020, due to the resignation of 22 rebel Congress MLAs from the Assembly under Scindia’s patronage and joining the BJP.
After this, the BJP returned to power in the state on March 23, 2020, under the leadership of Shivraj Singh Chauhan.
