Bhopal: In a shocking remark, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has hurled love jihad slur against Union Minister Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Syed Shahnawaz Hussain.

"If a Muslim boy marries a Hindu girl it is love jihad. In Prime Minister Narendra Modis Cabinet, Naqvi has married a Hindu woman, BJP leader Hussains partner is also Hindu..is this also a love jihad," Singh asked.

"They (BJP) have no agenda,no issues to discuss, other than raising Hindu-Muslim. They only want to spread hatred and instigate people in the name of Hindus and Muslims. We oppose this," the senior Congress leader said.

Notably, just a few days back, another senior Congress leader and Madhya Pradesh chief minister Kamal Nath had made an objectionable comment against Imarti Devi by using the word "item" against the BJP candidate from Dabra constituency for the upcoming by-elections to the Madhya Pradesh Assembly.

While campaigning in Dabra area in Gwalior district on October 18, Nath had said: Wo kya hai main uska naam kyun lun aapko mujhe satark karna chahiye tha kya item hai (Who is she Whats her name? You all should have warned me what an item!).

Notably, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said it was unfortunate that Nath made the item jibe against Madhya Pradesh's Dalit woman Minister Imarti Devi. "Kamal Nathji is from my party, but personally I don't like the type of language that he used; I don't appreciate it, regardless of who he is. It is unfortunate," Gandhi had said.

The upcoming Madhya Pradesh bye-elections, scheduled to be held on November 3, are a litmus test for both the BJP and the Congress. In an attempt to save the BJP government from falling, incumbent Chief Minister Shivraj Sinh Chouhan has to prove majority in the 243-member MP Assembly. At present BJP has 107 MLAs.

Congress had suffered a huge set back after Jyotiraditya and 22 other Congress MLAs resigned from the party and joined the saffron unit, which had led to the fall of the Kamal Nath government. The grand old party has 88 legislatures and needs to win 28 seats to come back to power.

The Madhya Pradesh by-polls were necessitated following the resignation of Scindia and other Congress MLAs.
