Hitting back at BJP for targeting him over sharing dais with controversial Islamic preacher Zakir Naik, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh today raked up the issue of BJP leader Rajnath Singh's alleged meeting with 2008 Malegaon blast accused Pragya Thakur.
He also posed a question to the ruling party, wondering what it would say about Sri Sri Ravi Shankar sharing the stage with Zakir Naik.
"I am being criticised for sharing stage with Zakir Naik but what about Rajnath Singh ji meeting bomb blast accused Pragya Thakur ?"
"Pragya is an accused in bomb blast. Is there a case against Zakir Naik as yet? What about Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji sharing stage with Zakir ?" he said in a series of tweets.
The Congress leader has in the past too alleged that Rajnath Singh had met Pragya Thakur in jail when BJP was in the opposition. Rajnath Singh, who is now the Union Home Minister, had then denied meeting her.
Digvijaya Singh is being targeted by the BJP after surfacing of a 2012 video showing him praising Zakir Naik, who has come under government scrutiny after reports emerged that terrorists involved in Dhaka attack were inspired by him.
