While two phases of the Lok Sabha elections remaining, political parties and their leaders are leaving no-stone-unturned to woo the voters. On Tuesday, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh performed a ‘pooja’ in the presence of Computer Baba. Digvijaya Singh was also accompanied by his wife.
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. Later, he was also seen campaigning for Congress leader Digvijaya Singh.
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”.
Earlier on November 23, 2018, a group of religious figures led by godman Computer Baba declared support to the Congress for November 28 Assembly elections in Madhya Pradesh.
It marked a radical change in the political stand of Swami Namdev Tyagi, popularly known as Computer Baba, who had been anointed as a minister of state by the BJP government. Computer Baba had organised `Narmade Sansad', a gathering of like-minded religious leaders from various states including Uttar Pradesh, here Friday to decide which party they should support in the polls.
"The saints will support the Congress. If Congress upholds dharma, we will go with them in future or else we will withdraw the support," he had said at the gathering.
In April, the BJP government in the state had accorded him the status of Minister of State along with five others by appointing him on a committee for conservation of the river Narmada.
