New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Digvijay
Singh on Thursday took a jibe at Ramdev, who today disclosed details
of his business empire worth over Rs 1,100 crore, saying that
the Yoga Guru should declare his assets correctly.
"Let him declare the assets but you should remind him
that he does it correctly," Singh told reporters when his
attention was drawn to Ramdev`s move.
Ramdev, who is on an indefinite hunger strike against
black money and corruption at Haridwar after being evicted
from Delhi, today made public details of his business empire
worth over Rs 1,100 crore, claiming everything was in order.
The AICC general secretary, who has been attacking
the Yoga Guru ever since he launched his fast against black
money, said that he was indeed sad to see four ministers
including Pranab Mukherjee going to airport to meet the Yoga
Clarifying his remarks made to a TV channel yesterday,
he said, "I had not said that he (Mukherjee) committed a
mistake. I had said I was pained and not that he committed a
mistake by going there."
Singh had told the channel that he felt "very sad and
unhappy that Pranab Da went there" and that "he (Mukherjee)
virtually staked his political career" with that step.
Party spokesperson Jayanthi Natarajan, parried
questions on Singh`s statements and her refrain was that
"Government will answer and explain for whatever action it has
taken or regarding the strategy."
On certain statements by Anna Hazare and other civil
society representatives dubbing the government as "liars,
conspirators and cheats", she said, "We totally reject it.
This is absolutely unacceptable."
