Congress Member of Parliament PV Hanumanth Rao told reporters that “Rahul Gandhi is not even in the government and he is only the party general secretary. Hazare is attacking him for weakening the Lokpal Bill to help vested interests tarnish his image. Congressmen will not tolerate this.”
Launching attack on Anna Hazare and his team for criticising Congress general secretary Rahul Gandhi, Digvijaya Singh also said Anna Hazare was subsequent the game plan of the BJP and the Sangh Parivar.
“The BJP is supporting Anna Hazare to avert public attention from the fact that Sangh Parivar supporters have been arrested for terrorist activities,” Digvijaya said to reporters.
Asked for his response on the subject, Congress leader Satyavrat Chaturvedi said “His (Anna’s) word is not the one of Lord Brahma. Is he Satyawadi Harishchandra?, I do not agree with this.”
Prior, Congress had blamed Team Anna of increasing ‘unnecessary pressure’ on Parliament.
Congress General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi had said on Sunday that “This type of attempt is to bring unnecessary pressure on Parliament and democracy.”
