Senior Congress leader Digvijaya Singh on Sunday said Anna Hazare has decided to observe "maun vrat" (vow of silence) so that he does not have to give a reply to questions related to BS Yeddyurappa and team Anna member Prashant Bhushan.
"It seems Anna Hazare has decided to observe maun vrat so that he does not have to give a reply if any question is asked about Yeddyurappa or Prashant Bhushan," Digvijaya said.
"Why is it so that while there is campaign against Congress, nothing is being said against BJP. Why Anna Hazare praises Gujarat CM Narendra Modi when Lokayukta has not been appointed in his state for the last nine years," he said. The Congress general secretary said he would look this as an example of double standard.
"I am surprised why Anna is not accepting that he has the support of RSS and its workers made arrangements during his campaign," Digvijaya said.
He said a senior-most RSS functionary wrote a letter to Anna announcing his support to him.
"The RSS functionary wrote that he directed the workers to support Anna's campaign. He also issued directives for supporting Baba Ramdev," the Congress leader said.
"On the one hand, they say not a single RSS worker was present in the campaign while on the other Govindacharya said 20% workers were of Sangh. Both the statements cannot be right, we want to know which one is correct," he said.
