Hitting out at Digvijaya Singh for calling yoga guru Baba Ramdev an agent of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS), BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain on Saturday said the Congress general secretary has no right to make such a comment as he is not a party spokesperson.

"He (Digvijay) must tell whose agent is he and who has made him the agent. He is not the spokesperson of the Congress, so how is he making such comments?" the Bharatiya Janata Party leader asked.

Hussain went on to term Singh as the general secretary of Congress president Sonia Gandhi.

Singh earlier in the day questioned Ramdev's "strong affiliations with RSS".

"The foot soldiers in the fast are from the RSS. It is evident that he (Ramdev) is piggybacking on the RSS," he said.
