Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh on Wednesday warned social activist Anna Hazare not to fast again else he may get the "same treatment" as yoga guru Baba Ramdev got recently.

Speaking to reporters here, Digvijay Singh said: "The constitutional system in this country is supreme and responsible to the people of the nation, but the four members of Anna team are not responsible to the people of the country."

He warned Anna Hazare against his proposed fast from Aug 16. "Anna saheb says he will again sit on fast. If he does so, he may get the same treatment as the other (Baba Ramdev) got recently."

The police had cracked down on Ramdev and his supporters in New Delhi's Ramlila Ground June 4, causing injury to several people. Ramdev was forced to continue his fast against corruption in Haridwar.

The Congress general secretary also questioned the Bharatiya Janata Party's supporting the corruption issue raised by civil society members.

"I want to ask BJP, they remained in power for six years. Did they make a single law against corruption?"
