Rampur (UP): A day after Anna Hazare
threatened to launch another hunger strike if a strong Jan
Lokpal Bill is not passed in the Parliament`s Winter Session,
Congress leader Digvijay Singh today said his party is not
afraid of the Gandhian`s threats.

"Congress is neither bothered, nor afraid of Anna`s
threat to resume his fast on the last day of Parliament`s
Winter Session if the government fails to get a strong Jan
Lokpal Bill passed by then," he said at a religious function
in Sambhal town of Moradabad district, around 70 km from here.
Digvijay said Anna team`s claim that they have the
support of over one crore people on Jan Lokpal bill issue is
"unfounded, hollow and fictitious".
Replying to a query on `gupt daan (secret donations)` to
NGO India Against Corruption run by Arvind Kejriwal during
Anna`s hunger strike in Delhi, Singh said sarcastically, "Na
khata na bahi, jo Kejriwal kahe wahi sahi (There is no account
book. Whatever Kejriwal says, is correct and unquestionable)."
