In an attempt to take a pot shot at Prime Minister Narendra Modi, senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Friday courted controversy as he posted a disparaging post on the social media, suggesting that the PM Modi’s achievement was to be able to fool the people of the country.
Digvijaya Singh lifted a meme made by someone against PM Modi and posted the picture on his Twitter account.
The meme represents the supporters of PM Modi as ‘Bhakts’, continues to say that making fool of others and making fools follow him are the only achievements of Modi.
The meme posted by Digvijaya read, “Mere do achievements 1.) Bhakton ko Ch** banaya 2.) Ch*** ko Bhakt banaya.”
Digvijaya Singh — despite understanding the derogatory nature of the picture — while posting the abusive meme also said that he couldn’t help but post it.
“Not mine but couldn’t help posting it. My apologies to the person concerned. He is the best in the art of fooling!” This quote is an apparent jab at Prime Minister Modi.

The always so vocal Congress leader Digvijaya Singh was recently in the line of fire for his reacting to the bail granted to 2008 Malegaon blast main accused Lt Col Prasad Shrikant Purohit.
Accused the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) government, Digvijay said that the saffron party was “trying to protect all accused connected with RSS.”
“Col. Purohit gets Bail. It was expected as the present BJP government is protecting all the accused connected with RSS in all bomb blast cases,” he said.
Speaking further he also said, “NIA Chief has been given two extensions to ensure their acquittal. He may now be further rewarded for a suitable post retirement position.”
The Supreme Court on August 21, granted bail to Purohit, the main accused in the 2008 Malegaon blast which killed seven people after he had spent nine years in prison.
