New Delhi: Congress leader Digvijay Singh
on Saturday took a swipe at Anna Hazare over his changing statements
on a political campaign against the party if Lokpal Bill was
not passed in the Winter Session of Parliament.

"Anna`s statements. Early October- Defeat Congress. Late
October -Defeat Corrupt Candidates. Early November -Defeat
Congress. Late November?," Singh commented on microblogging
site Twitter.

Singh had yesterday said Hazare was losing his
credibility because of his conflicting utterances on the
Lokpal issue claiming that the social activist`s campaign
against Congress in Uttar Pradesh will have "zero" impact.

"Anna is losing his credibility gradually by making such
statements. One day he says defeat Congress. The second day he
says I am not against any party but against corrupt candidate.
Next day he says, I am going to campaign against Congress. He
should make up his mind first and think before he says
something," Singh had said.

Singh`s recent public remarks including those on Twitter
came after Hazare`s declaration yesterday that he will
campaign against Congress in five states where Assembly
elections are due next year if UPA government fails to get
Jan Lokpal Bill passed in Winter Session of Parliament.

Singh maintains Hazare should silently wait till the
Winter Session, as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh himself has
assured him to bring the bill in the session.
