New Delhi: Firing yet another salvo at Team
Anna for campaigning against Congress in Hisar bypoll,
Digvijay Singh on Monday claimed that Anna Hazare is being "led up
the garden path" by people who were against "weaker section
"I am extremely sorry, Anna is being led up the garden
path by all those people who are basically opposed to the idea
of Congress, weaker section and reservation," the Congress
general secretary, who has been locked in a war of words with
Team Anna, told reporters here.
He claimed that Hazare aide Arvind Kejriwal has been known
for his anti-reservation policy.
When asked about Justice Santosh Hegde disapproving of
Hazare`s anti-Congress stance in the Hisar bypolls, he said,
"I am thankful to him. He should immediately distance himself
from Team Anna".
Asked for his reaction on the Gujarat High Court upholding
appointment of Lokayukta by Governor, Singh wondered if Hazare
who launched an indefinite hunger strike over the Jan Lokpal
issue had overlooked the failure of Chief Minister Narendra
Modi to appoint a Lokayukta for nine long years.
"When the Governor made the appointment on the advice of
Chief Justice, the Narendra Modi government opposed it tooth
"It shows his double standard," he said.
