Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh today alleged that the anti-corruption campaigns by Ramdev and Anna Hazare were "Plan A and B" of the RSS-BJP's overall plan to divert attention from "their involvement in terror activities". He added that Art of Living guru Sri Sri Ravishankar was "Plan C".
Singh first tweeted: "Plan A, B and C are of Sangh/ BJP to divert the minds of the people from their involvement in terror activities to corruption."
He later explained to mediapersons that Plan A was Ramdev, Plan B was Hazare and Plan C is Sri Sri Ravishankar. He said this was all part of the RSS-BJP's plan to "divert" attention from the Sangh activists' involvement in terror activities in Malegaon, Modasa, Hyderabad, Ajmer Sharif and Samjhauta Express.
"I hold Sri Ravishankarji in high esteem and have done a course in the Art of Living as Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister in 2001. He should be wary of the Sangh-BJP," he tweeted.
Speaking to The Indian Express later, he said: "Didn't you get press releases from Art of Living everyday when Anna was on fast? Don't you see the connection?"
Responding to his statement, Ravishankar said he would continue his fight against corruption. "People write so many things. I do not react to every comment. Everybody is entitled to his views," he said.
Singh also asked why the BJP had not taken action against Bangaru Laxman under the Prevention of Corruption Act when he was "caught taking money on tape".
Meanwhile, BJP spokesperson Ravi Shankar Prasad hit back at Singh's "shameless way of demonising all those who are fighting against corruption".
