New Delhi: BJP on Wednesday took on Digvijay Singh
for his remarks on RSS support for Anna Hazare`s movement,
saying it was a known fact and his harping on it proved that
the Congress leader was "unwell".

"Like the Mughal forces used to see Maratha king Shivaji
everywhere, he (Digvijay Singh) sees the RSS. Now he says he
has proof- as if this is rocket science- that RSS had
supported Anna Hazare`s fast. RSS had publicly supported
Hazare and there is no secrecy about it," BJP spokesperson
Prakash Javadekar said.

He maintained that there was nothing to hide and RSS
was not running away from owning this up.

"RSS did not support Hazare surreptitiously or covertly.
RSS has said on its web site that it supported Hazare,"
Javadekar said.

He said that Congress knows "RSS` strength and so is
worried about its support to Hazare".

"All we can say is Digvijay Singh get well soon. What
else can one say to a person who is unwell," Javadekar said.
Singh today wrote a second letter to Hazare in as many
days saying he was attaching proof that RSS had supported his
movement. He also told Hazare that people around him were
keeping him in the dark about such issues.

Hazare has publicly asked the voters of Hisar not to
vote for the Congress in the Lok Sabha by-polls to be held
tomorrow.
