Bhopal: Veteran Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Digvijaya Singh claimed that one of the two accused arrested for smuggling marijuana in Satna district was ‘associated’ with Hindu right-wing outfit Bajrang Dal.
The Congress leader, as per a report by IANS, said arrested person Sundaram Tiwari, who was arrested by Railway Protection Force (RPF) on Sunday with 10 kg cannabis at Uchehra railway station under Satna district, “is an office-bearer of Bajrang Dal”.
Digvijaya has shared some photographs of Sundaram Tiwari, 21, with Madhya Pradesh BJP President V.D. Sharma on his official Twitter handle.
The Congress leader has also tagged RSS head Mohan Bhagwat and Narendra Modi, seeking an answer from them.
“Bajrang Dal’s Panna district co-convenor Sundaram Tiwari has been caught by Railway police for smuggling ganja. Is smuggling of cannabis a is a cultural act? Chief of RSS and Bajrang Dal should give reply on this matter,” Digvijaya’s social media post read.
Further, he also hit out at Modi saying the latter has “misused the name Lord Bajrang Bali for such people”.
