Congress not afraid of Anna's threats: Digvijay Singh

Anna Hazare-Digvijay Singh
Rampur (UP), Nov 2: A day after Anna Hazare threatened to launch another hunger strike if a strong Jan Lokpal Bill is not passed in the Parliament's Winter Session, Congress leader Digvijay Singh today (Nov 2) said his party is not afraid of the Gandhian's threats.

"Congress is neither bothered, nor afraid of Anna's threat to resume his fast on the last day of Parliament's Winter Session if the government fails to get a strong Jan Lokpal Bill passed by then," he said at a religious function in Sambhal town of Moradabad district, around 70 km from here.

Digvijay said Anna team's claim that they have the support of over one crore people on Jan Lokpal bill issue is "unfounded, hollow and fictitious". Replying to a query on 'gupt daan (secret donations)' to NGO India Against Corruption run by Arvind Kejriwal during Anna's hunger strike in Delhi, Singh said sarcastically, "Na khata na bahi, jo Kejriwal kahe wahi sahi (There is no account book. Whatever Kejriwal says, is correct and unquestionable)."
