Don't get involved with RSS: Digvijay warns Sri Sri Ravi Shankar


October 27, 2011 - New Delhi

Asserting that Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) was trying to bring in spiritual guru Sri Sri Ravi Shankar in their campaign against the government, Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Thursday urged the latter not to get involved in this.

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.

"First they brought Baba Ramdev, and when he was exposed they came with Anna. We have heard now they are trying to bring Sri Sri Ravi Shankar ji," said Digvijay.

"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.

He further said that UPA government has taken all positive steps against issues of corruption under the leadership of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Prime Minister Dr. Manmohan Singh to check corruption.

"Right to Information Act was brought by us, Money Laundering Act was done by us...We have taken action against corrupt people," he added.

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

Digvijay has earlier tweeted that it is now Sri Sri Ravi Shanker's turn to launch campaign against the government. Campaign against Congress by Baba Ramdev had crashed as it failed to appeal to people. Referring to Anna Hazare's campaign he raised a question mark without saying whether it failed or succeeded.

He tweeted: "Plan A - Baba Ramdev. Crashed. Plan B- Anna ?. Plan C - Sri Sri Ravi Shankar soon to start his campaign.
