New Delhi, Oct 10: Firing yet another salvo at Team Anna for campaigning against Congress in Hisar bypoll, Digvijay Singh today claimed that Anna Hazare is being “led up the garden path” by people who were against “weaker section and reservation.”
“I am extremely sorry, Anna is being led up the garden path by all those people who are basically opposed to the idea of Congress, weaker section and reservation,” the Congress general secretary, who has been locked in a war of words with Team Anna, told reporters here.
He claimed that Hazare aide Arvind Kejriwal has been known for his anti-reservation policy.
When asked about Justice Santosh Hegde disapproving of Hazare's anti-Congress stance in the Hisar bypolls, he said, “I am thankful to him. He should immediately distance himself from Team Anna”.
Asked for his reaction on the Gujarat High Court upholding appointment of Lokayukta by Governor, Singh wondered if Hazare who launched an indefinite hunger strike over the Jan Lokpal issue had overlooked the failure of Chief Minister Narendra Modi to appoint a Lokayukta for nine long years.
“When the Governor made the appointment on the advice of Chief Justice, the Narendra Modi government opposed it tooth and nail.
“It shows his double standard,” he said. PTI
