With bill giving Constitutional status to Lokpal defeated in Lok Sabha, Digvijaya Singh on Wednesday took potshots at BJP and Team Anna, asking Anna Hazare whether his colleagues would stage a dharna in front of LK Advani's residence pleading the BJP not to oppose it in Rajya Sabha.

"BJP opposes Constitutional Amendment for giving strength to Lokpal and Lokayukts in the States where 95% corruption takes place.

"No reaction against BJP from Team Anna. Now BJP would again try to defeat Lokpal Bill in Rajya Sabha. Would like to see Team Anna's reaction", he said in a tweet.

He predicted that despite the BJP defeating the bill, "Anna won't speak a word against BJP/RSS", adding Team Anna and "their foul mouthed Tweeple" would still hurl abuses at Congress, Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress Presdient Sonia Gandhi.

The reason being "Team Anna a front for BJP/RSS", he alleged.

"Would Anna force BJP and do a dharna in front of Advaniji's residence and tell them not to oppose Lokpal Bill in Rajya Sabha ?" he asked.

Congratulating the Prime Minister and Congress President for getting Lokpal Bill passed, he told the social activist, "Anna please for God's sake break your fast and prove me wrong."

Taking a dig at Team Anna's influence, he tweeted: "Media claimed Anna has the support of 120 crore people. Where are they? Would Media pl correct their estimates?"

He also tweeted the attendance in support of Anna as: "Hyderabad Dharna chowk -150: Kolkata Mahajati Sadan Complex -80 people. Mumbai: MMRDA ground-3000.Bangalore- Freedom Park- 150.Ahmedabad Income Tax circle 50. Delhi Ramlila Ground App 1000."

"Where are the lakhs registered for Jail Bharo?" Singh, a known critic of the social activist, asked.
