New Delhi: With RSS claiming support to Anna Hazare's movement and the Gandhian denying links with it, Congress on Thursday called it a "cat and mouse game" and demanded that the truth behind the claims and counter claims about relationship between the two must come out.

"RSS is repeatedly saying that it supports Hazare. If Anna Hazare finds any contradiction in what RSS is saying or if he thinks RSS is not speaking the truth, why does not he say it in clear terms?”

"There is this cat and mouse game that is going. One organisation says, we are supporting, the other says are not taking support. The truth behind it must come out in public," party spokesperson Manish Tewari told reporters here.

The Congress spokesperson's remarks came after the RSS today said Anna Hazare's anti-corruption movement had its support and its activists were not barred from joining the campaign but the outfit noted it had no 'official' link with the Gandhian.

Reacting to RSS Chief Mohan Bhagwat's remarks in this regard, Hazare denied that RSS was supporting his movement.

"I have no relations with the RSS," he told reporters at his native Ralegan Sidhi village in Maharashtra while denying that RSS was supporting him.

"Let them say whatever they want. Yesterday Sonia Gandhi said something....They are just targeting me. The world knows who Anna is. What need is for me to be with them," he added.

Bhagwat's comments had come against the backdrop of Congress leader Digvijay Singh's allegation that Hazare has a nexus with BJP-RSS in the anti-corruption agitation.

The Congress spokesperson at the same time refused to comment on Hazare's other remarks or the counter remarks made on him by politicians including AICC general secretary Digvijay Singh, saying it is "not appropriate" to react to every comment of non-governmental organization.
