New Delhi: A day after Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi became the BJP's campaign committee chief despite stiff resistance from LK Advani, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh said that the veteran leader did not get his due.

"He (Advani) was a man who took the tally of BJP from two in 1984 to 182. If this person has demanded some more time and asked to wait for a while, or demanded setting up of two committees including one headed by former BJP president Nitin Gadkari, what was the problem…," Singh said.

"He (Modi) has never been a threat for the party (Congress). We don't take him seriously. We fight elections on the basis of ideology, not personalities," Digvijay Singh said, when asked whether the Lok Sabha elections would see a Rahul Gandhi-versus-Narendra Modi fight.

"We (Congress) fight elections on the basis of principles and not personalities," Singh said.

Digvijay cautions Rajnath Singh against Modi

Digvijay Singh also cautioned BJP president Rajnath Singh against the Gujarat Chief Minister, saying Modi has always "chopped off" the hands which promoted him.

"It is clear that Modi has always chopped off the hands which promoted him. That is why we would like to caution Rajnath Singh," Singh said.
