Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh, who earlier joined hands with Islamist and anti-Bharat forces to pin blame on Hindus and RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) for the deadly 26/11 Mumbai attacks orchestrated by Pakistani terrorists, has now come up with a new theory. According to Singh, the violence witnessed during the so-called farmers’ tractor rally on Republic Day was actually started by government officials to malign farmers.
"The farmers have handed over 15 people who started the violence yesterday. They have been found to have govt identity cards. Now you only understand who is in the govt. This was an act of concerted conspiracy to malign a peaceful movement," says Congress leader Digvijaya Singh https://t.co/Jb0Haes3kt

Speaking to the media, Singh said that tractor rallies were conducted from three places Singhu, Tikri, and Ghazipur borders. While Singhu and Tikri rallies were peaceful, violence erupted at the Ghazipur border rally which was one of the designated sites and permitted by police authorities to carry out the rallies. Singh further alleged that there was trouble at the Ghazipur site only because the police refused to let protestors carry out their rally despite having given permission for the same.
He then went on to say that the protestors were demanding that the police remove barricades which the latter refused leading to an argument between the two sides following which the police began lathicharging and throwing tear gas shells at the protestors.
Singh also opined that those who have been protesting peacefully for the last two months cannot be violent. Singh then put forward the allegation that the so-called farmers have caught 15 people who have been handed over to the police. According to Singh, those caught were said to be possessing government identity cards. He said that the entire violence was planned and executed by the government so as to blame the alleged farmers.
Singh also said that as the government wanted to show a peaceful agitation in a bad and negative light, it resorted to such tactics whereby it could blame the protestors. This was Singh’s “RSS ki saazish” (Conspiracy by RSS) moment with respect to the farmers’ protest. Congress has always been anti-Hindu is well known and that it harbors a deep-seated hatred for RSS & BJP is nothing new but that Singh would make alleged government employees scapegoats in an attempt to blame PM Modi and put out unverified facts is not surprising either, it is something Congress is well-known for.
It is not that Singh would not know this but he only needs to have looked at the sequence of events since the past couple of months when the alleged farmers laid siege to the Singhu border culminating in the R-Day violence. Raising death chants for the country’s Prime Minister does not fall under the ‘peaceful’ category by any stretch of the imagination.
“December 3 ko meeting hai, agar hal koi hua toh thik hai nahin toh…aap jaante nahin…hamare shaheed Udham Singh ne goro ko Canada me jake thoka…Indira thok di…Modi ki chhati mein…(If the meeting scheduled on December 3 doesn’t find a solution…you know…our martyr Udham Singh had hit the whites in Canada….we had killed Indira…we will riddle Modi’s chest),” the protestor threatened.
Death chants for the PM have been heard in at least two different videos from the protests – here and in the one below where a child can be seen leading the death chants against both the PM and Haryana CM ML Khattar
“Modi teri kabr khudegi, aaj nahin to kal khudegi…Khattar teri kabr khudegi, aaj nahin to kal khudegi…..Modi mar gaya, hai hai (Modi’s grave will be dug, if not today then tomorrow…Khattar’s grave will be dug, if not today then tomorrow…death to Modi),” the child chanted with the crowd following him.
Just as Shaheen Baug protestors used children to raise anti-Modi slogans so did the alleged farmers. These farmers had even vandalized a Patanjali store at the Delhi-Haryana border while raising slogans of “Raj karega Khalsa” (the Khalsa will rule).
Earlier violence was witnessed across Punjab where farmers damaged more than 1300 Jio towers. The protestors also destroyed the Ram Mandir and Kedarnath Mandir tableaux in a clear Hindudveshi act. Farmer leader Rakesh Tikait’s Hindudveshi speech was a give away that these protests were less about the farm laws and more about Hindudvesh. digressedunleashedIt is also important to point out here that unlike what Singh said the farmers from the routes allotted to them by the Delhi police and also violence on the police using swords which led the police to use tear gas shells and lathicharging.
Digvijay Singh may well want to twist the narrative to raise sarkar ki saazish like RSS ki saazish but that may fall flat just like the saffron terror bogey the Congress tried to raise in an attempt to vilify Hindus.
