With Digvijay Singh claiming that Sri Sri Ravi Shankar could now be used by RSS to "divert attention" from rightwing terror after the agitations by Ramdev and Anna Hazare, the Art of Living guru on Thursday vowed to continue his fight against corruption.

"A law is necessary. However, a law alone cannot bring down corruption. A moral and spiritual wave has to be created. I have been speaking against corruption and will continue to fight against corruption," he said in a statement.

A spokesperson for the guru had yesterday said he administered oath to one lakh people to not to give or take bribe.

Ravi Shankar's statement came as a response to Singh's claim that the anti-corruption stir by Anna Hazare and Ramdev were part of an over-all plan of RSS-BJP to divert attention from Sangh's "terror links". He also warned Sri Sri Ravishankar that he too could be used by them.

The AICC general secretary said that while Ramdev and Anna Hazare were plan A and B of the Sangh-BJP, Sri Sri Ravishankar is Plan C and asked the latter to be "wary" of the two organisations.

Reacting to it, Ravi Shankar said, "People write so many things. I do not react to every comment. Everybody is entitled to his views."
