Country will never accept Narendra Modi: Digvijaya Singh

Indore: Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh has said that the country will never accept Gujarat Chief Minister and BJP's possible prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi as he cannot keep the nation united.
"A person, who, because of his personal ambitions, broke his own alliance and created a controversy in his own party can neither keep the nation united, nor the people will ever accept him," Singh said here Thursday night during a programme held by an association of Employees' Provident Fund ORganisation (EPFO).
Modi was not an issue for the Congress, Digvijay pointed out while saying that his party was not fighting against any individual, but the ideology of spreading communalism.
BJP had always been working for religious polarisation in the country, Digvijay said and also alleged that the party was also behind the recent communal violence in Muzaffarnagar.
The Congress leader, who has been charged with giving government land to self-styled godman Asaram Bapu in Indore in 1998 when he was the state Chief Minister, distanced himself from the controversial preacher and said that his only guru was Shankaracharya Swaroopanand Saraswati. He said that in 1998, all political parties had recommended that land be alloted to Asaram since none of them were aware of his character and what he would do in future.
The 72-year-old godman is presently in judicial custody after being arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a 16-year-old girl at his ashram. Digvijay said the lease given to the trust owned by Asaram should be cancelled and the land be taken back.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
