Bhopal, Congress leader and erstwhile Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijaya Singh shall try his fortune from Bhopal parliamentary constituency, Chief Minister Kamal Nath – also the party’s state President – averred on Saturday.
“The high command arrived at a decision of this nature on Friday,” he told the press here.
Mr Singh held this state’s reins for a decade since 1993 and earlier represented Rajgarh in the Lok Sabha.
Bhopal is nothing short of a saffron citadel with Mr Alok Sanjar having emerged victorious in 2014. The Bharatiya Janata Party, which has controlled the voting area for almost the past three decades, is yet to announce its candidate.
