Reacting to Singh's statement, BJP leader Shivraj Singh Chouhan said that he make such controversial statements to stay in news.
Earlier on Saturday, Digvijaya said Prime Minister Narendra Modi was worried about Fit India while the economy is facing a slump.
He also said Congress president Sonia Gandhi will take a call on appointing a new Madhya Pradesh Congress chief, a post currently held by Chief Minister Kamal Nath.
“The economy is in bad shape. The government itself is saying GDP is falling. The condition has reached to such an extent that government has to take money from Reserve Bank of India. But the Prime Minister Modi is worried about Fit India,” he told reporters.
