Digvijay Singh’s tweet
Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh wrote in a tweet, what is happening in Bengal regarding Panchayat elections is scary, I have been a fan of Mamta Banerjee’s patience and determination but what is happening cannot be tolerated. We know you faced similar situation bravely in CPM rule, but what is happening now is not good for our democracy.
What is happening in the panchayat elections in Bengal is appalling. I have been an admirer of Mamta’s grit and determination but what is happening is inexcusable. We know you faced similar situation bravely in CPM rule but what is happening now is not good for our democracy.
