No ‘Ramdev like treatment for Anna’: Digivijay

Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Thursday did a volte-face saying he never meant that Hazare would also be given the same treatment that had been meted out to Baba Ramdev.



Bhopal: Congress leader Digvijay Singh
Thursday denied that Anna Hazare would be given a treatment
similar to yoga guru Ramdev if he goes on fast unto death from
August 16 on the Lokpal issue.

"I am surprised and pained at reports in today`s
newspapers which quoted me as saying that the treatment given
to Ramdev would also be meted out to Anna Hazare," the
Congress General Secretary said.

Singh said that during his interaction with reporters
yesterday in Jabalpur what he said was that the Congress had
nothing to do with the manner in which either Hazare or
Ramdev be treated.

He said Congress had nothing to do with how the two
were treated as it is always decided by the local
administration after assessing the prevailing situation at
that moment.

The outspoken leader maintained that if there was a
need for holding a fast, the younger activists of civil
society like Arvind Kejriwal or Prashant Bhushan should do it
instead of Hazare.
