Lucknow: Senior Congress leader Digvijay
Singh on Sunday said Anna Hazare has decided to observe "maun
vrat" (vow of silence) so that he does not have to give a
reply to questions related to BS Yeddyurappa and team Anna
member Prashant Bhushan.
"It seems Anna Hazare has decided to observe maun vrat so
that he does not have to give a reply if any question is asked
about Yeddyurappa or Prashant Bhushan," Digvijay told
"Why is it so that while there is campaign against
Congress, nothing is being said against BJP. Why Anna Hazare
praises Gujarat CM Narendra Modi when Lokayukta has not been
appointed in his state for the last nine years," he said.
The Congress general secretary said he would look this
as an example of double standard.
"I am surprised why Anna is not accepting that he has
the support of RSS and its workers made arrangements during
his campaign," Digvijay said.
He said a senior-most RSS functionary wrote a letter
to Anna announcing his support to him.
"The RSS functionary wrote that he directed the workers
to support Anna`s campaign. He also issued directives for
supporting Baba Ramdev," the Congress leader said.
"On the one hand, they say not a single RSS worker was
present in the campaign while on the other Govindacharya said
20 per cent workers were of Sangh. Both the statements cannot
be right, we want to know which one is correct," he said.
The Congress leader said "if the civil society says its
campaign is non-political, then it does not need to
"In Hisar they opposed Congress and have announced to
do the same in UP. If civil society members are apolitical,
why a call to defeat a political party was given," he asked.
Digvijay said he has no objection if there was RSS
support to Anna "but why doesn`t he accept it".
"If he says he has no information about the RSS support
then why thanks were given to Gadkari from Team Anna`s dias?
Why Ram Madhav was allowed? Have any of the team Anna`s
members said whatever Govindacharya is saying is false," he
