Cong unimpressed with Digvijay`s letter to Hazare
Congress disapproved of the latest letter written by Digvijay Singh to Anna Hazare, saying it was not required after PM Manmohan Singh wrote to him.
New Delhi: Congress on Wednesday disapproved of the
latest letter written by Digvijay Singh to Anna Hazare, saying
it was not required after Prime Minister Manmohan Singh wrote
to the Gandhian.
"After the Prime Minister`s letter to Hazare, I don`t
think it was required to sent any communication to him
(Hazare)," party general Secretary Janardhan Dwivedi told
Dwivedi, who is the chief of AICC media department, said.
"The whole country knows that RSS and BJP have repeatedly
said that they are with Anna and they are making certain
arrangement" for their campaign.
A senior leader, who declined to be identified, said what
was important "are the issues and not individuals".
Digvijay, who had yesterday questioned Anna Hazare on why
he was not attacking the BJP, today shot off a second letter
to Hazare raising the issue of RSS support to the activist and
cautioned him that those around him were keeping him in dark.
He also enclosed a letter from RSS general secretary
Suresh (Bhayya) Joshi to him, extending "full support" in his
battle against corruption.
The Prime Minister had yesterday declared government`s
commitment to a strong Lokpal and wrote to Hazare saying that
the Gandhian`s demand for `Right to Reject` provision in
electoral law needs political consensus.
