Everyone in the world seemingly has an opinion about Bitcoin these days. Indian Congress General Secretary Digvijaya Singh stated how terrorist flock to digital currencies such as Bitcoin. Moreover, he also affirmed the demonetization effort in India will not affect local terrorist activity. Very unusual statements from an individual who is still under investigation by the police.
For people unfamiliar with the name Digvijaya Singh, he is involved in an ongoing scam investigation. Together with several other individuals, he is accused of a recruitment scam which took place a while ago. At that time, Singh was the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh. Singh even appeared in court in February of 2016.
Fast forward to today and this person is the Congress General Secretary. It is not uncommon for political figures to make promotion, regardless of how checkered their past may have been. But what is worth noting is how Singh has a clear opinion on Bitcoin and terrorism. In fact, he is very eager to link both together, without providing any evidence whatsoever.
