Ramdev and Anna are 'masks' of RSS and Sangh Parivar: Cong

Dubbing Ramdev and Anna Hazare as 'masks' of destabilising forces, Congress on Tuesday alleged a conspiracy of national subversion has been undertaken jointly by the forces of right reaction and left anarchism.

"Over the past 10 months, there have been systematic attempts to undermine the stability of the government", party spokesman Manish Tewari told reporters.

He said the forces of right reaction and forces of left anarchism have come together in the conspiracy of subversion.

This, he said, was happpening because of four reasons--nervousness of Sangh Parivar after the investigations in Samjhauta Express pointed fingers towards people associated with RSS and mounting evidence against Narendra Modi in the 2002 Gujarat riots.

The two other reasons were "desperation" of BJP's Prime Minister in waiting and the attempt by the Left ideology to derive mileage from the situation.

"Are we going to allow stability of the government and basic structure of the Constitution to be compromised ?" he asked.

Talking separately, AICC general secretary B K Hariprasad accused veteran L K Advani of "outsourcing" opposition role to Hazare and Ramdev after losing in two elections and said the senior BJP leader was an "old man in a hurry" to become PM.

Launching a blistering attack on Hazare, the Congress leader said he is a "mask of RSS and Sangh Parivar" and said he was no better than Ramdev. "It is not their satyagraha but the Agrah for Satta (demand for power)," he said.
