- Digvijaya Singh questioned BJP effort's towards development
- He pointed to accident in Varanasi where two pillars of a flyover fell
- Mr Singh then said, "My apologies... My fault I didn't check up"
His tweet on Saturday questioned the BJP effort's towards development and citizens' safety. He further pointed to the mishap in Varanasi where two pillars of a flyover collapsed, killing 18 people.
Fact checking website AltNews debunked his claim and pointed out the error to Mr Singh on Twitter. It pointed out that it was an old image of a damaged metro pillar in Pakistan and not Bhopal.
