Guna (MP): Continuing his tirade against
Yoga guru Baba Ramdev, Congress general secretary Digvijay
Singh on Sunday asked Baba to name the person who had secretly
donated him a helicopter.

Singh also accused Baba Ramdev of turning the black money
received as donations, into white.

"Baba, who is demanding that the names of the people
with black money should be made public, should name the person
who had secretly donated a helicopter to him," Singh told
reporters at his hometown in Raghogarh last evening.

"Baba is bringing the secret donations (black money)
under the tax free category, making it white, and accumulating
huge capital," Singh alleged.
"Baba was in the business of turning black money into
white. It was against the Centre`s Prevention of Money
Laundering Act," he said demanding an inquiry into it.

Taking a potshot at Baba, he wondered from where the
figure of Rs 400 lakh crore black money stashed abroad has
cropped up.
"Slowly and gradually, things are becoming clear, which
is why, the RSS and BJP have started distancing themselves
from Baba," he said.

"Baba himself stated that the government had agreed to 99
per cent of his demands, which is why he is continuing his
fast," he said.

Singh said that Ramdev`s fast wasn`t a satyagraha, but a
`Nautanki` in Ramlila ground in Delhi.
