BJP must thank Digvijay for decimating Congress: Ravi Shankar Prasad


October 27, 2011 - New Delhi

Reacting to Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh's onslaught, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the BJP must thank the latter for working to ensure the downfall of the Congress.

"I need to compliment Digvijay Singh for his most important plan, that of completely decimating Congress by his outspoken and almost shameless way in which he is trying to criticise, all those who are campaigning against the corruption of the UPA government," he told the media here.

"Good luck to him for his great plan, the more he speaks the more Congress loses its credibility," he added.

Prasad further said Singh was only helping the BJP's cause by making unjustified allegations against Team Anna.

Earlier in the day, Singh asserted that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) and BJP were trying to bring in spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in their campaign against the government.

Talking to reporters here, Singh also claimed that the RSS had earlier brought in yoga guru Baba Ramdev and social activist Anna Hazare in the campaign.

"I have always been saying from day one that all these are over all plans of the RSS, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) combine. They want to divert the attention of the people of the country. From the issue of involvement of Sangh activists in terror act in Malegaon, Ajmer dargah, Hyderabad, Samjhauta Express, so its overall plan to divert attention form corruption done by BJP members," he said.

Further criticising the BJP, Singh asked: "Why BJP did not register the case against Bangaru Laxman under the prevention of corruption act when he was caught taking money on tape."

"Why BJP MP was not sent to jail when caught on TV or camera taking bribe. Why case was not registered against Jaya Jaitley when she was caught on tape striking a deal with arms dealer in Defence Minister's house. BJP record on charges of corruption has been pathetic," he added.
