Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Wednesday drew parallels between the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and German dictator Adolf Hitler and alleged that the BJP was destroying India just as Hitler was destroying Germany.
Speaking to Twitter, the congressman said: “The final phase of the elections has arrived. Now everyone at BJP will say, “Hinduism is in danger, vote for BJP to save it.” The BJP is doing the same thing Hitler did before. BJP destroys India just like Hitler destroyed Germany. “
The allegations came ahead of by-elections in three Assembly constituencies in Madhya Pradesh – Prithvipur, Raigaon (SC) and Jobat (ST) in Madhya Pradesh – which were due to take place on October 30.
According to the electoral commission, the counting of the votes and the announcement of the results will take place on November 2.
