Master Strategist Digvijaya Singh sets out for 6 month 3300 km spiritual padayatra

NEW DELHI: AICC general secretary Digvijaya Singh has decided to embark on a six-month padayatra of almost 3,300 km to perform Narmada Parikrama. The route crisscrosses many parts of Madhya Pradesh and some areas bordering Gujarat.

Singh said it was strictly a "nonpolitical" and "completely religious and spiritual" endeavour which he had wanted to undertake since 1997 but could not as he was pre-occupied with political engagements. However, he is convinced the time has come to finally perform the Parikrama, a scared ritual for pious Hindus in which thousands of people participate, making it among the biggest holy congregations around the banks of the Narmada. As per plan, Singh is to begin his padayatra on September 30.

"Yes on the advise of my guru, I have decided to undertake a padayatra for performing the Narmada Parikrama this time. It is a strictly spiritual endeavour, something I wanted to perform for a very long time but could not," Singh said when contacted by ET.

Singh being the tallest Congress leader from MP, it’s anybody’s guess whether the six month padayatra will turn into a mass-contact programme. Singh, a vocal critic of Modi government and BJP-RSS, is constantly targeted by Sangh Parivar supporters.

As per rules of the Parikrama, anybody undertaking it should complete the entire route even though s/he is permitted to take occasional breaks at certain points provided the person will resume the yatra from the same point.

Incidentally, the yatra route covers over 110 assembly segments in Madhya Pradesh and another 20 seats in neighbouring Gujarat...

As Singh is widely perceived to command the largest support base among MP Congress leaders, his support is seen as crucial for any leader who aspires to lead the party to elections by uniting the faction ridden state Congress.

Leaving aside the present CM of MP (Chouhan), Digvijaya has been the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh for the longest time ever (since the creation of modern India). Digvijaya was CM of MP for two full terms (10 years). Prior to Digvijaya no CM of MP had accomplished this feat.

You mean being appointed CM of MP for two full terms by the High Command is a Master Strategy! Many of us call it Dynasty Boot Licking. Any faithful Dog of the Dynasty can be made to sit on any Throne by the High Command.

it is a sad fact of life but the fact is that both the BJP and the Congress have a high command. The high command of the Congress is the Gandhi family, and of the BJP is the RSS.

it would be churlish to begrudge Digvijaya some credit for taking on and defeating the BJP when he won his second term as CM of MP (the first time anyone had become CM of MP for a second term which would last a full five years).
