Anna should be grateful to RSS

Continuing his tirade against Gandhian Anna Hazare and his team members, AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday made a tongue-in-cheek remark by branding the anti-graft crusader “ungrateful” for not giving credit to the RSS despite getting support from the saffron outfit.

In his latest post on the micro-blogging site Twitter, Mr Singh said, “Baba Ramdev is being more honest about the support of RSS to his campaign. Haven’t understood why Anna is denying. Ungrateful?”
Later talking to reporters, Mr Singh reiterated his accusation that Mr Hazare has total support of the RSS. “Baba Ramdev has accepted that Anna was aware of this (RSS support), so Anna should also accept this,” he added.

When asked what made him to believe that Mr Hazare is “ungrateful” Mr Singh alleged: “Anna has total support of the RSS, then why does not he accept that.”

On Baba Ramdev’s allegations that government is not serious about bringing back black money, the Congress leader said, “First he should explain where did he get the... money from.”

On Saturday, Mr Singh had launched a frontal attack on spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravishankar.
for releasing a book written by BJP president Nitin Gadkari. He had also charged that the BJP’s support to key Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal in his spat with Swami Agnivesh proved him right that the BJP and the RSS were supporting Mr Kejriwal.
Team-a strong, no one can break it: anna
Mumbai, OCT. 30
Clearing the air over allegations of cracks in the team, Gandhian Anna Hazare on Sunday said, “Team Anna is very strong and nobody can break it. Some persons in the Congress are trying to malign the image of our team members. By slinging mud on few people, there will be no impact whatsoever on this people’s agitation. The fight of the team will continue until the Jan Lokpal Bill is passed.”

Commenting about the Hisar bypolls, Mr Hazare stated that the Congress party is worried about the results. He further stated that the movement in Hisar was done to show the Congress that if the Jan Lokpal Bill would not be passed in the coming Winter Session, people would continue to vent their anger in a similar manner. He said the Congress should complete its responsibilities as they are ruling in the Centre or else he would tour the five states where polls are to be conducted after the Winter Session.

He stated that there are misconceptions regarding the money spent and the donations procured for people’s agitation. “From the total donation money, we received `40 lakh from unrecognised sources through bank transactions. We asked the bank to return the money.”

We stopped collecting donations after the Ramlila agitation. All these things point out that the agitation is not for minting money.
