Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Tuesday performed a ‘pooja’ in the presence of Computer Baba and other Sadhus ahead of the Bhopal constituency Lok Sabha Elections. As per reports, Computer Baba, who was granted the status of a minister in BJP government, was already at a venue where he is camping along with thousands of sadhus to undertake Hat Yog.
However, Digvijaya Singh's election campaign has turned ugly as the Sadhus have given out a statement that 'they were unaware about the campaign and don't have anything to do with the party'. Talking to Republic TV, one of the Sadhu said:
"Computer Baba ne humko bulaya aur bole ke sab Mahatma Log aao bhandara hai. Yahan pata chal raha hai ke Congress party ke paksh mai bolna hai aur Digvijaya Singh ko jitana hai. Lekin humko toh party se kuch lena dena nahi hai chahe BJP aaye ya Congress. Hum toh ghumne firne wale Mahatma hai. Dakshina 100 -5000 hai. Dekho kitna mil jaye. Abhi kuch nahi diya. Abhi subha nashta karvaya hai aur dekho khana mile na mile. Aane jane ka milna baaki hai. Vaise 2000 rupeye tak ka andaaz hai humko. Hum prachar ke liye nahi aaye. Yeh toh dhoka hai. Jo party humare hit ke liye karege aur dharam ke lkiye karege humn usko vote karenge".
(Computer Baba called us and all the Mahatma for Bhandara. We came here and got to know that we have to talk in favour of Congress. But we have nothing to do with the party, Congress or BJP. We live life of gypsies. We get about 100-5000 as dakshina. Let's see how much we get. As of now, we have nothing. This is betrayal. We will vote for those who will work for us)
Another one said:
"Hum computer baba ke liye aaye hai. Hum prachar ke liye nahi aaye. Pata nahi baaki kya ho raha hai".
(We are here for computer Baba. We are not here for any campaign. I have no ide4a what is going on.)
Earlier, talking to the media, Computer Baba said:
“BJP sarkaar 5 saal mein Ram Mandir bhi nahi bana paayi. Ab Ram Mandir nahi toh Modi nahi”.
