The Karyakarta Mahakumbh has been in news for more than one reasons. While the trend of BJP charging its workers money to fund rallies is presented by the media as a bad practice. Which we obviously wonder why! Because such little amount is not causing a hole in anybody’s pocket really.
Digvijaya Singh has brought the rally into the focus of social media by raising the controversial burqa issue. According to Digvijaya Singh, a rich businessman based in Indore, MP has spent a whopping amount to procure burqas for the Bhopal rally. He implies that BJP is targetting muslims by categorically projecting itself as a muslim-friendly party.

Digvijaya Singh’s accusation that BJP was faking support of muslims led to sharp reactions on social media while the supplier of the burqa denied of having struck any such deal.
