New Delhi: Taking potshots at Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Sunday accused him of amassing crores of rupees for his NGO.
The Congress general secretary in charge of Uttar Pradesh said at Azamgarh that the Income Tax
department had served notice to Kejriwal way back in 2005.
Singh charged the former bureaucrat with not only flouting government service rules but also being involved in politics and collecting "crores" through his NGO.
Singh also drew a line between Yoga Guru Ramdev and Gandhian Anna Hazare, both of whom are engaged in anti-corruption campaigns.
"While Ramdev is a thug (cheat), Hazare is a social worker and that is why the government acted on his demands," Singh said.
Strongly reacting to Digvijay’s accusations, Kejriwal asked the Congress leader to have
an FIR lodged against him if he felt so instead of making "irresponsible statements".
"If Digvijay Singh feels I have swindled crores, why doesn`t his government register FIR against me and take legal action rather than making irresponsible statements," Kejriwal said.
