Stepping up to target Anna Hazare and his team, Congress leader Digvijay Singh reportedly announced that the campaigner was a “mask of RSS like yoga guru Ramdev” and was purposely creating distractions in the issue of Sangh members’ arrest.
According to Singh, the Lokpal matter was brought up simply “to divert the attention of the people from the arrests of various RSS activists in connection with terrorism and others in corruption cases.”
He added: “They (BJP and RSS) formulated this plan. First they made Baba Ramdev as its mask and them Anna.”
The general secretary of Congress states, “I respect Anna Hazare as he is Gandhian but, unfortunately, he is surrounded by wrong people.”
Later he added: “Kejrewal is still a government employee. Government has not accepted his resignation. He is still an officer of Indian Revenue Service (IRS).
Moreover, Sing openly incensed: “Has a government employee right to open campaigning? Has he the right to collect donation? If 40 lakh employees cannot do it, how can he (Kejrewal) do it… has respected Team Anna and invited them to the drafting committee but it was opposition which had problem with it, not us.”
While in response to Digvijay’s remarks, Hazare says: “I have said this earlier also that people like Singh should be put in ‘Yeravada’ (mental asylum)”
