He further added that he respects the BSP chief and is in favour of the Congress-BSP alliance. 

Senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Wednesday reacted to BSP chief Mayawati calling him a BJP agent stating that he has been "one of the bitterest critics of PM Modi."

"Please ask her, as far as I am concerned, I had been one of the bitterest critics of Modi ji, Amit Shah ji, BJP and the RSS. Rahul Gandhi is our Congress chief, we follow his directions," Singh noted.

He further added that he respects the BSP chief and is in favour of the Congress-BSP alliance.

"I've already made it clear that I respect Mayawati ji and have been in favour of Congress-BSP alliance from the beginning. In Chhattisgarh, there were talks for alliance but she didn't go for it. In MP too there were talks of an alliance, she declared 22 candidates," he added.

BSP chief Mayawati, earlier in the day, announced that her party will contest assembly elections without any alliance in Madhya Pradesh and Rajasthan. 

"Digvijaya Singh, who is also a BJP agent, is giving statements that Mayawati ji has a lot of pressure from Centre so she doesn’t want this alliance. This is baseless," the BSP chief added. 

She also added that she feels that "Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi's intentions for Congress-BSP alliance are honest, however, some Congress leaders are sabotaging this."
