Slamming Digvijay Singh's remarks that anti-graft agitations by Anna Hazare and Ramdev were part of a plan of RSS-BJP to divert attention from rightwing terror, BJP on Thursday alleged that he was trying to "demonise" all those who were fighting against corruption.


"I compliment Digvijay Singh for his important plan of almost shameless way of demonising all those who are fighting against corruption. Good luck to him. The more he speaks, more the Congress will lose its credibility," party spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad said here.

Expressing similar sentiments, BJP Vice-President Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said Singh's comments will prove to be a "hit wicket" for the Congress.

"Digvijay Singh's hit list will prove to be hit wicket for Congress. It is unfortunate that he is issuing hit lists like terrorists, for those who are fighting against corruption and black money," Naqvi said.

He said instead of fighting against corruption, Congress is targeting those who are trying to get rid of corruption.

"Congress should concentrate on fighting against corruption. This will help country and help Congress too little bit," he said.

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 spiritual guru to be "wary" of the two organisations.

Singh remarked on the microblogging site Twitter "Plan A, B and C are of Sangh/ BJP to divert the minds of the people from their involvement in terror activities to corruption."
