Digvijay accuses Hazare of provoking violence
Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Saturday accused Anna Hazare of provoking violence.
New Delhi: Congress general secretary
Digvijay Singh on Saturday accused Anna Hazare of provoking
violence, in an apparent reference to his reaction over the
attack on Union Minister Sharad Pawar.
In two of his posts on the microblogging site Twitter,
Singh said, "Anna "Gandhian" - Provokes Violence. Bedi"X Cop"-
Urges People to break Law Kejriwal"X IRS"- Returns Donations
"Shanti Bhushan "X Law Minister"- Promises to fix
Judges.Pranab Da How right you are ! Where is our Country
Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjee had condemned the
incident immediately, wondering "I don’t know where the
country is going".
In another tweet yesterday, Singh had wondered whether
there was a connect between the statement of BJP leader
Yashwant Sinha that rising prices could lead to violence and
Hazare`s remark of "only one slap" over the assault on Pawar.
"Strongly condemn cowardly attack on Sharad Pawarji.
Yashwant Sinha`s statement, this incident, Anna`s reaction. Is
there a connect?
"Never expected Anna to react the way he did to Sharad
Pawar incident. It certainly was not a Gandhian Reaction,"
Singh had said
In two more tweets, the AICC general secretary had
continued the argument.
"Tie up people and beat them up if they drink liquor,
send people to mental asylum whom you don`t agree, hang
people without trial.
"Are we moving into a Fascist Mode? Throw rose petals on
Police Officers accused in false encounter, beat up people
whom you don`t agree with," he had said.
