New Delhi: Stepping up his attack on
Baba Ramdev, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Friday
alleged that RSS was behind the yoga guru`s indefinite fast
beginning tomorrow.

Frowning upon the protest action by the Baba, Singh
agreed with a questioner that the Yoga guru was playing
politics. "If you want to teach yoga, I have no problem, but
if you want to do politics, then join the fray".

Singh, who has been speaking against Ramdev despite a
virtual gag order by the party, alleged that it has been
crystal clear that the RSS volunteers were behind the Baba`s
protest action.

"Right from putting up the pandal to organise the
meetings, everywhere there is RSS," he told reporters.
Singh had yesterday dubbed Ramdev of being "more of a
businessman than a Sanyasi".

Singh also took a dig at KN Govindacharya for
choosing Ramdev for launching the anti-corruption campaign
saying that this was not expected from the RSS ideologue.

The Congress leader also sought to find faults with
the method of teaching yoga by Ramdev saying that several yoga
experts have expressed reservation on it.

However, Singh said his party was in consultation with
Baba Ramdev and he should "respect" the fact that so many
senior ministers were involved in hammering out a solution to
the issues raised by him.
