"We are happy that Lokayukta is coming to Gujarat after
11 years. But we are also surprised that Anna fails to see
corruption in Gujarat. Anna had praised Narendra Modi. Now
everything is becoming clear.
"Modi, who is the hero of BJP, himself wants to cover up
corruption and hence did not allow the setting up of a
Lokayukta in the state," Digvijay Singh said in Lucknow.
He chose the occasion to repeat his allegation that Anna,
Baba Ramdev and Sri Sri Ravishankar are working at the
behest of BJP and RSS.
"They fail to see corruption in the BJP-ruled states.
They see it only in Congress-ruled ones," he said.
Singh, who is the AICC general secretary in-charge
for Uttar Pradesh, said Team Anna has also not spoken a single
word against "corruption" in Mayawati-ruled UP.
AICC in-charge for Gujarat Mohan Prakash, without naming
Anna or his team said, "those who have been speaking in favour
of setting up of Lokpal and Lokayukta have remained silent so
far on the controversy regarding the Gujarat Lokayukta".
New Delhi: Congress on Wednesday targeted Anna
Hazare questioning his "silence" on the Gujarat High Court
verdict on Lokayukta and the alleged corruption in the
Narendra Modi-ruled state.
