Congress still open for merger with TRS: Digvijay Singh

New Delhi: On the women's day, Congress leader Digvijay Singh sought to attack Narendra Modi on the personal front, saying how can the Gujarat chief minister look after the nation if he cannot "respect and take care of his wife".

"I want to ask him if there is slightest respect for women in his heart, why does he leave blank the column where his wife's name should be written in the election form. Why Gujarat's 'who's who' does not mention his wife's name.

"Why does not Modi say so if he is not married or he has left her? Poor Jashodaben (Modi's reported wife) lives in a rented accommodation. Why does not he get a bungalow for her and provide her the facilities, when he has become such a big man. How somebody, who cannot respect and take care of his wife, will look after the nation?" Singh asked.

Singh also dismissed the threat of RSS to initiate legal action against Rahul Gandhi for his remarks blaming the Sangh for the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi.

"Whatever he (Rahul) has said is correct. It is their (RSS) ideology that killed Mahatma Gandhi... We will prove that Mahatma Gandhi was assassinated due to their ideology. Gandhi ji was killed due to their provocative statements and whisper campaign. We have been fighting this ideology and will keep fighting."
