Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh on Friday accused anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare's campaign against graft to be biased in favour of the opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
"Why is Team Anna keeping mum on corruption in the BJP-ruled states like Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Jharkhand and Gujarat. Why is only the Congress being blamed for corruption?" Singh said in his third "open letter" to Hazare.
Hazare, who heads the India Against Corruption (IAC) movement, has led two nationwide hunger strike campaigns this year that forced the Centre to act on graft and recently campaigned in by-polls in Haryana against the ruling Congress alleging that the party was stalling anti-corruption reforms.
Taking on the the septuagenarian self-styled Gandhian activist, Singh reiterated that anti-Congress stance of Hazare benefited the BJP and proved that he had links to the right-wing party's ideological parent the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
