Reportedly, former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Digvijaya Singh will contest from Bhopal in the upcoming elections. Bhopal has been BJP's bastion since decades as the saffron party hasn't lost parliamentary polls from there since 1989.
Earlier, CM Kamal Nath said that Singh should contest from the "toughest" seat in the state.
Singh's candidature was finalized by Congress' Central Election Committee, a top leader said.
"To accept challenges is my habit. I won from Raghogarh despite the Janata Party wave in 1977. I am ready to contest the Lok Sabha elections from wherever my leader Rahul Gandhi Ji says," Singh had added.
