New Delhi: BJP on Tuesday denounced statements of
Congress leader Digvijay Singh against it and Sangh Parivar
founthead RSS, saying his "jaundiced eye and desperation" were
making him see a patriotic organisation as one involved in
"What Digvijay Singh says the country does not pay
attention to. We do not even want to say where he should be
sent. This is an internal matter of the Congress. But he
should not taint the RSS, which is the biggest school of
patriotism in the country, as an organisation involved in
terror activities," BJP pokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.
He said the RSS had fought against Congress leaders who
had imposed an Emergency on the country.
Singh had attacked the BJP while taking on civil
society activist Anna Hazare.
"Anna Hazare is a respected figure. He and his team are
attacking the Congress as it has become synonymous with
corruption. Whether you say Congress or corruption, its all
the same," Javadekar said.
The BJP insisted that Singh should stop targeting the
party and the RSS.
"In his desperation, Singh is calling RSS and BJP
names.... He has a jaundiced eye. RSS has been involved in
character building. To attack it is untenable. We condemn his
utterances," Javadekar said.
