Trolled on social media for not going ahead with a ‘Samadhi’ after the defeat of Congress’ Lok Sabha candidate from Bhopal Digvijaya Singh as promised, Swami Vairagyanand has submitted an application to the collector of Bhopal seeking permission to immolate himself on Sunday. Congress candidate Digvijaya Singh lost to BJP’s Pragya Thakur by a margin of about 3.60 lakh votes. During the election campaign Swami Vairagyanand predicted Singh’s victory and said he would perform a hawan with chillies for his victory. After Digvijaya Singh’s defeat Swami Vairagyanand was trolled on social media for his false prediction and backing out from his resolve. Another seer, Computer Baba aka Namdev Das Tyagi also performed religious rituals and held a road show in Bhopal, attended the Congress candidate on both occasions.
