New Delhi: Congress on Sunday saw "BJP
conspiracy" in Ramdev`s supporters throwing black ink on Sonia
Gandhi`s poster outside the AICC headquarters and accused the
Opposition party of resorting to such "desperate" tactics on
seeing its "certain defeat" in polls in five states.
"...prima facie, the facts that are here make it clear
that it is the handiwork of our political opponents including
not only BJP but also the other peripheral elements, which are
trying to promote BJP`s agenda.
"It`s clear that our political opponents have lost cool
and become desperate as they have no confusion about their
imminent defeat in the Assembly polls in the five states but
they should have fought politically not this way," party
spokesperson Abhishek Singhvi told reporters here.
He was reacting at the AICC briefing soon after a group
of protesters sloganeering in favour of Ramdev shouted slogans
against Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Digvijay Singh after
throwing black ink on the Congress President`s poster outside
the party headquarters.
"This is a very unfortunate conspiracy," Singhvi said
accusing the BJP of doing "cheap politics" out of "utter
frustration" and thereby undermining democratic polity.
He said Congress has seen far bigger forces in the past
trying in far more obstructive manner to do such things but
the party has always emerged successful.
Some people under the banner of Yuva Bharat Kisan
Panchayat gathered outside the Congress headquarters at 24,
Akbar Road to protest the recent attack on yoga guru Ramdev
here and threw ink on Sonia`s poster.
On Saturday, Kamran Siddiqui, who runs an NGO, had thrown
black ink on Ramdev during a press conference when the yoga
guru evaded his question on Batla House encounter.
