Computer Baba, Digvijaya Singh's 3-day camp under scanner

ANI  |  Politics 

District Collector Bhopal has ordered an inquiry to investigate if permission was granted for the three-day camp being held by Namdas Tyagi, also known as Computer Baba, along with other saints.

Besides this, the official has sought a probe on the cost of the event as well as the role of Congress leader Digvijaya Singh.

Digvijaya had on Tuesday performed a 'havan' in the presence of Tyagi and other sadhus at a 'maha yagna' organised in Bhopal.

Tyagi said that the yagna was a form of 'Hat Yoga' to ensure Digvijaya's win in the Lok Sabha elections. He had also accused the BJP of "fooling" the community of seers by using the Ram Mandir issue as a political tool.

'Computer Baba' was appointed as a Minister of State (MoS) under the Shivraj Singh Chouhan government. However, he had openly rebelled against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) after being denied a ticket to contest elections held in Madhya Pradesh.

Bhopal will go to polls in the sixth phase of parliamentary elections on May 12, and counting of votes will take place on May 23.

In Bhopal, Digvijaya is contesting against BJP's Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur from Bhopal Lok Sabha seat.
