Bhopal: Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh yesterday lashed out at yoga guru Baba Ramdev calling him a "money launderer".
"Those who could not believe when I said Ramdev is a thug, are grudgingly admiring me now! :) Ramdev is money launderer," Digvijay said in a tweet.
The Congress leader's criticism comes in the wake of the yoga guru facing embarrassment after he was caught warning Mahant Chandnath, BJP candidate from Alwar in Rajasthan, not to talk about money when the mics were on.
Moments before the conference, Chandnath had told Ramdev that he was facing problems in bringing money there, to which Ramdev had reacted and warned him not to talk about money when the microphones were on.
He had murmured, "Stop talking here. Are you a fool?"
Meanwhile, Singh's allegations were dismissed by Ved Prakash Vedic, one of Ramdev's close confidants and a member of his team.
"I request him to kindly provide the nation proof about money laundering by Ramdev. The ruling politicians are being great practitioners of the art of money laundering," he said.
Vedic said by levelling unsubstantiated allegations against Ramdev, Singh has put his own credibility at stake.
