Hours after senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh's election campaign turned ugly after Sadhus present at the venue gave out a statement that 'they were unaware about the campaign', BJP's Bhopal candidate Sadhvi Pragya, who is contesting against Singh in Bhopal, spoke to Republic TV and said that 'Sadhus are being traded'.
"Nichit roop se yeh toh hoga hi ke adharam par chalne wale log satya se dartey hai. Yeh kalikal hai, isme sadhu santo ka durupyog kar lete hai. unka bhi vyapar kar lete hai. Yeh hai bhagva ko aatank kehne wale log aur Hindutva ko aatank kehne wale log, Naari ka apman karne wale lo, Rashtra ka apman karne wale log aur aatankvadi ka samman karne wale log. Yeh sabka sahara vahi lete hai jo andar se nahi hota hai. Mai sadhu hoon apne anand mai jeete hoon baaki jisko jaisa karna hai vaisa kare. Satya kuch aur bhi hai. Jhoot bolke bualaya gaya hai. Paise dekar bhi bulaya gaya hai. Mera paas iska praman hai. Ek report toh yeh bhi hai ke jo madir mai baitne wale bikhari hote hai unko bhagva pehna kar ke lekar gaye. Unse jab pucha toh bole hum koi sadhu sanyasi hai. Sadho ke saath anaye Congress hi kar sakti hai. Jisko jo lagta hai karna chahye. Matdata jawab detga. Congress ka charitra samne aaraha hai. Desh jawab dega."
(Those who don't follow Dharam are the ones who are scared of the truth. This is Kalyug where Sahu-Saints are being misused. They are being traded. They are those who call 'Saffron terror', who call Hindutava terror, who disrespect women, who disrespect Nation and respect the terrorists. Only those who are empty inside resorts to these tactics. I am a Sadhu and live a life of Happiness. The truth is more vast. They lied to call the Sadhus. They were offered money. I have proof. There is a news report that says that beggers outside temple were made to wear saffron. When these people were questioned it was revealed that they are not Sadhu-Saints. Only Congress can do injustice with Sadhus. The voter will answer them. Congress'character is out in public and the Nation will answer.)
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.
Earlier, while talking to Republic TV, 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)
