Digvijay targets Anna for changing statements on campaign

Digvijay Singh
New Delhi, Nov 5: Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Saturday took a swipe at Anna Hazare over his changing statements on a political campaign against the party if Lokpal Bill was not passed in the Winter Session of Parliament.

"Anna's statements. Early October- Defeat Congress. Late October -Defeat Corrupt Candidates. Early November -Defeat Congress. Late November?," Singh commented on microblogging site Twitter.

Singh had yesterday said Hazare was losing his credibility because of his conflicting utterances on the Lokpal issue claiming that the social activist's campaign against Congress in Uttar Pradesh will have "zero" impact.

"Anna is losing his credibility gradually by making such statements. One day he says defeat Congress. The second day he says I am not against any party but against corrupt candidate. Next day he says, I am going to campaign against Congress. He should make up his mind first and think before he says something," Singh had said.

Singh's recent public remarks including those on Twitter came after Hazare's declaration yesterday that he will campaign against Congress in five states where Assembly elections are due next year if UPA government fails to get Jan Lokpal Bill passed in Winter Session of Parliament.

Singh maintains Hazare should silently wait till the Winter Session, as Prime Minister Manmohan Singh himself has assured him to bring the bill in the session.
