Bangalore: Continuing with his praise of Arvind Kejriwal, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh today asked civil society leaders “hurling abuses” at political parties and their leaders to learn from the Aam Aadmi Party leader to join politics to enact laws.

“Those (civil society leaders) who sit in their homes and hurl abuses on political parties and their leaders should learn from Kejriwal to form a political party (first) and (then) make whatever laws they want to,” he told reporters after Congress party's coordination committee meeting here.  Singh's comments come close on the heels of his praising Kejriwal when he said that BJP's Prime Ministerial candidate Narendra Modi should learn austerity and humility from the AAP leader.

Singh said people critical about laws should realise the importance of forming a political party and contesting elections as Kejriwal did.

“People who wanted to make laws by hitting the roads at last have come to realise the necessity for entering the State Secretariat to enact laws. Therefore I had welcomed them when they formed a party,” he added.
