New Delhi: BJP on Saturday hit back at Digvijay Singh over his barbs at Narendra Modi and RSS, saying they reflected Congress` "frustration" over the Gujarat Chief Minister`s popularity.

"He may say whatever he wants to but why I should take his comments seriously, when his own party does not," Ravi Shankar Prasad, the party`s deputy leader in Rajya Sabha, said.

Taking a jibe at Singh, Prasad said that he was speaking out of frustration as opinion polls have shown Modi as the leading contender for the prime minister`s chair while Congress Vice-President Rahul Gandhi figured nowhere near him.
"People want Modi, they love him. He (Singh) may say whatever he wants to," Prasad said. Singh in a tweet had said, "BJP succumbs to threats of RSS and Ramdev and declare Modi as BJP`s PM candidate. Do we still call RSS as a Cultural Organisation?"
He said Modi had ditched all leaders, including LK Advani, who once supported.
