New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Digvijay
Singh on Tuesday accused Anna Hazare of indulging in politics
instead of fighting corruption and attacked him for burning
copies of the government bill on Lokpal a few days back.
Justifying the detention of Hazare, the AICC General
Secretary said there are provisions of taking preventive steps
in law if the administration feels that law and order can go
out of control in a certain situation.
"Who gave him (Hazare) the right to burn copies of the
bill which has been tabled in Parliament? Was this
constitutional? The thing is that he is not fighting against
corruption but doing politics," Singh said.
He also appealed to Hazare that instead of observing a
fast over the issue, the civil rights activist should go
before the Standing Committee to put across his views.
As far as the public movement is concerned, they should
convince MPs to bring the bill they want in Lok Sabha, he
