Congress leader Digvijay Singh has said that members of Bajrang Dal and BJP spying for Pakistani secret service ISI was a matter of concern and attention needed to be paid on this phenomenon.
In a video shared by news agency ANI, Singh was heard saying, “Bajrang Dal, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) are taking money from ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence). Attention should be paid to this. Let me tell you one more thing. Non-Muslims are spying for Pakistan’s ISI more than Muslims. This should be understood.”

Singh’s comments came a week after the Madhya Pradesh anti-terror squad arrested five persons in Satna district on the charge of helping ISI in terror funding through Chinese Box-enabled espionage. They were identified as Balram Singh, Sunil Singh, Bhagvendra Singh and Shubham Tiwari. The identity of the last accused was not known.
A report by Deccan Herald said that Pakistani handlers used Chinese Sim box – enabled fake telephone exchanges to cheat Indian citizens through various frauds including phone lottery. The money thus procured would be deposited in bank accounts of Indian nationals on a monthly rent ranging between Rs 2,000 and Rs 5,000.
Reacting to Singh’s statement, Chouhan said, “He gives controversial statements to stay in news. He and his leaders speak Pakistan’s language. Pakistan quotes Rahul Gandhi. As far as BJP-RSS is concerned, the entire world, the entire country knows their patriotism.”
Earlier, one Dhruv Saxena, a local BJP leader, too was arrested during the government of Shivraj Singh Chouhan, for his links with the ISI. Chouhan was defeated by Congress in the last assembly polls.
