Addressing an election rally in Madhya Pradesh’s Bhopal, the Congress candidate from the same Lok Sabha constituency asked the crowd if anyone got the ‘promised Rs 15 lakh’ into their bank accounts? (Prime Minister Narendra Modi is believed to have promised to deposit Rs 15 lakhs in accounts of every Indian post demonetisation)
To this, a man raised his hand and was then called up on the stage. On being prodded to tell the gathering about getting Rs 15 lakh into his account, he exclaimed, “Modi ji did surgical strikes and killed terrorists,” he was pushed away before he could say anything more.
A seemingly perturbed Digvijaya Singh then took to the mic and asked him again if he got those ‘promised’ Rs 15 lakh. He further asked him if he is employed and mocked him when he said that he indeed got the money in his bank account.
