BHOPAL: Amid ongoing political tussle in Madhya Pradesh, senior Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Monday met state Governor Lalji Tandon, and termed it as a "courtesy" visit.

Talking to reporters after meeting the governor, Singh said he had known Tandon for the last many years and that they did not discuss politics.

Madhya Pradesh has been in a political turmoil since last Tuesday after 22 MLAs of the ruling Congress resigned. They are believed to be the loyalists of rebel Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia, who has since joined the BJP.
