November 13, 2003 17:15 IST
Announcing his decision to file a defamation suit against Bharatiya Janata Party leader Uma Bharti on Monday for her 'repeated and baseless' charges against him, Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijay Singh said personal allegations levelled by BJP leaders amounted to a poll code violation.

"I take strong exception to Uma Bharti's wild, baseless, unrestrained and repeated corruption charges against me," Singh told reporters in Bhopal on Thursday.
He, however, declined to specify the amount he will claim from the sanyasin. "You will come to know on Monday," he said.
Singh refuted Uma Bharti's claim that lokayukta's recommendations for action against ministers of his cabinet are gathering dust. "There is not a single instance of indicted ministers going scot-free," he said.
Claiming that Congress will win 125 to 135 assembly seats in the state, Singh said elections are won on the basis of people's faith and confidence.
