Guna(MP), May 15 : Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh today took a jibe at yoga guru Baba Ramdev saying that he should abandon his plan to go on a hunger-strike against corruption before it causes him embarrassment.
“Many people turned up to persuade Anna Hazare to give up his fast but it is possible that no one might come to the aid of Ramdev. It will be better if he doesn't observe the fast,” Singh told reporters here.
On the petrol price hike, Singh said the BJP-led NDA government in 2002 had decided to free the petroleum products from the state control so that the international price governs it and the current government is just continuing the policy of NDA.
The UPA government hasn't freed cooking gas, diesel and kerosene from the state's control keeping in mind the poor, he said adding that subsidiary was being given on these petroleum products.
On Congress president Sonia Gandhi's invitation to AIADMK chief J Jayalalitha for a tea party, Singh said it was just a courtesy gesture and too much should not be read into it. PTI
