Indore: Congress National Secretary Sajjan Singh Verma today questioned the Congress high command's decision to nominate party General Secretary Digvijay Singh for the Rajya Sabha seat from Madhya Pradesh.

“As per my understanding, the party's high command's decision to nominate Digvijay for the Rajya Sabha seat from Madhya Pradesh is improper. He (Digvijay) has the capacity to win Lok Sabha polls from Indore, Sagar and Vidisha seats,” Verma told reporters here.

Describing Digvijay as an “encyclopaedia” of the Congress, the 61-year-old Congress MP from Dewas-Shajapur seat said, “when 86-years-old BJP leader L K Advani wants to contest Lok Sabha polls, then he (Digvijay) should also have adopted a similar approach”.

Verma said that instead of Singh, the party should have nominated youth leaders like the Congress party president Arun Yadav and All India Mahila Congress President Shobha Ojha to the Upper House of the Parliament from Madhya Pradesh.
