Singh has often attacked Hazare and his team for being
close to the BJP and RSS. He had charged that Hazare's fast at
Ramlila grounds was run with RSS support, a contention denied
by the Gandhian but accepted by the Sangh fountainhead.
"What nexus between BJP and Team Anna? I am an avowed
supporter of the Janlokpal Bill- and yet have never met or
spoken to Kejriwal, Bedi, Anna," Gandhi said on Twitter while
hitting out at Singh.
"Like every Indian, I am just fed up with corruption and
the inability of the system to combat it. Digvijayaji should
stop tilting at the windmills," he said.
Gandhi seems to have used this phrase- which means
attacking imaginary enemies, or fighting unwinnable or futile
battles- to drive home his point that Singh is needlessly
creating a controversy where none exists.
Though Gandhi maintains that he has never met Hazare, he
had visited Ramlila grounds when the Gandhian was on his fast
for a Jan Lokpal Bill.
BJP has stated in Parliament that it fully supports the
Jan Lokpal Bill.
New Delhi: BJP leader Varun Gandhi today hit
out at Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh for his
comments that there is a nexus between his party and Team
Anna, saying he should "stop tilting at the windmills".
