Anna Hazare may get ‘Ramdev treatment’ if he fasts: Digvijay

via PTI published on June 22, 2011

JABALPUR (MP): In a veiled warning to Anna Hazare for his proposed fast, Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Wednesday indicated that the Gandhian might be meted out the same treatment, depending upon the prevailing situation at that time, as yoga guru Ramdev was given at Ramlila ground.

“If Anna goes on a fast in New Delhi, he will also be meted out the treatment depending upon the prevailing situation at that time,” Singh said without mentioning the crackdown on Ramdev’s protest at Ramlila grounds recently.

According to Singh, the younger supporters of the anti-corruption crusader “flatter” him to fast without considering his old age.

“His (Hazare’s) supporters flatter him and make him sit on a fast. Instead of Anna, his young supporters should go on the fast,” Singh told reporters in an informal chat here after returning from Jabera of Damoh district.

Asserting that the parliamentary form of system was always supreme, Singh said that the government was accountable to people rather than to Anna and his team.

“Though Anna was a Gandhian, his supporters weren’t the same,” he said.

Taking a jibe at the RSS, he said that he was a better Hindu and follows the tenets of Hinduism much more religiously than the so-called Hindu organisations.
