Digvijaya Singh also questioned the involvement of the party's leaders such as Ashutosh Tiwari, Narottam Mishra and even Union Home Minister Amit Shah in aiding the 20 plus Congress MLAs to escape to Bengaluru. "Ashutosh Tiwari was in that chartered flight, we also have the information that the three charters that went to Banglaore, were arranged by the BJP. We want to know why Banglore is always used by the BJP? Why the Banglore government protects them? This is a conspiracy to topple the Kamal Nath Government because he took action against the mafia in the state. Narottam Mishra is involved, Amit Shah ji is involved, BJP is involved in this," he said.
