Amid the political crisis in Rajasthan, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has advised party’s former president to be more active in Parliament and more accessible to people.
In a tweet posted on Sunday (August 02), Singh said Rahul was different and wanted to do politics differently and the party should allow him to do so. However, as advised by NCP leader Sharad Pawar, Rahul should go around India, Singh said in the tweet.
I agree. He is different and wants to do politics differently. We should allow him to do so but then we also would like him to be more active in Parliament and more accessible to people. As advised by Sharad Pawar he should go around India. “Yatras” are important to connect. https://t.co/6fJQbD47ZB

In reply to the tweet, Congress whip in Loksabha Manickam Tagore said Rahul had taken nearly 100 padyatras (marches). He added that Singh himself had seen Rahul taking on Amit Shah and Narendra Modi in the Parliament.
“I think if who occupies high positions in party truly stand with him and not criticise behind his back we won’t be in opposition for long,” he said in the tweet.
Earlier, Singh had urged Rajasthan Governor Kalraj Mishra to accept the state cabinet’s “constitutional” demand for convening a special session of the Legislative Assembly.
Singh said, “I request the governor to accept the constitutional demand of the state government (in Rajasthan) to call the session. The governor has also taken the oath in the name of constitution”.
