New Delhi: Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Friday congratulated and welcomed Anna Hazare’s announcement that time has come to give a political alternative to the country.
Digvijay Singh said, “I congratulate Anna and his team for having expressed their belief in parliamentary process. I want that they should form political party, register it and field candidates in all Lok Sabha constituencies.”
He said that his sympathies are with Anna for having to abandon the fast owing to the worsening health condition of Arvind Kejriwal and others. He (Anna) had no other option, Singh quipped.
On Baba Ramdev, Singh said that as per his view the yoga guru must launch his Swabhiman Party and fight elections, adding Ramdev has no dearth of money to do so.
“…or even better, Ramdev with his money and Team Anna should join hands and fight elections,” he added.
