Cops in civil uniform ‘made to wear’ saffron scarves: Sources
Digvijay Singh raked up another controversy when on Tuesday, during a roadshow organised by Computer Baba, the police personnel who were deployed in civil uniform were seen donning saffron scarves.
Police sources on condition of anonymity said that they were ‘made to wear’ rather ‘forced to wear’ the same. This was after Baba organised a ‘Hatyog’ Yagna at Bhopal's Saifia Ground to ensure Digvijaya’s victory pitted against BJP’s strong contender Sadhvi Pragya Singh Thakur in the 17th Lok Sabha elections. Bhopal goes to poll on May 12.
However, a senior police official denied any of his officers wearing saffron scarves and said that the scarves were worn by the volunteers.
