Digvijay Singh praises Anna Hazare

bhopal Updated: Sep 10, 2011 14:42 IST

Gandhian Anna Hazare's crusade against corruption has augured well for the nation and has also led to some changes in the RSS, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh has said.

"Because of (Hazare's) crusade, RSS activists, who earlier used to sport black caps, have now switched over to wearing the white Gandhi caps," he told reporters in Bhopal on Friday evening.

"Not only that, workers of the Nagpur-headquartered Sangh fountainhead are now carrying the tri-colour instead of the saffron flag," the senior Congressman said.

About LK Advani's proposed yatra against corruption, Singh said the veteran BJP leader should first take steps to contain graft in the saffron party-ruled states, including Madhya Pradesh.

He also claimed that there has been a decline in terrorist activities ever since P Chidambaram took over as Union home minister in late 2008.

Later, Singh, along with state Congress president Kantilal Bhuria, called on new Madhya Pradesh governor Ram Naresh Yadav and wished him a successful tenure in Raj Bhavan.
