Yet again, Digvijay hints at RSS-Sri Sri Ravishankar nexus

October 29, 2011 15:16 IST

Congress leader Digvijay Singh on Saturday fired a fresh salvo at Sri Sri Ravishankar, suggesting a nexus between the spiritual leader and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh after he released a book containing speeches of Bharatiya Janata Party President Nitin Gadkari.

"Sri Sriji releases Nitin Gadkariji's book. Advaniji and Suresh Soniji of RSS on the dais. Sri Sri Ji ko Jai Ho," Singhi tweeted on Saturday.

Ravishankar had released the book here on October 8 with a call to "spiritualise" politics. The book titled Vikas Ke Path was released in the presence of L K Advani with RSS leaders sharing the dais.

This is the second time that Singh had posted his comments on the microblogging site Twitter suggesting relations between RSS and Sri Sri.

On Thursday, the Congress leader had alleged that the anti-corruption stir by Anna Hazare and Ramdev were part of an over-all plan of RSS-BJP to divert attention from Sangh's "terror links" and warned Sri Sri Ravishankar that he too could be used by them.

The All India Congress Committee general secretary said that while Ramdev and Hazare were plan A and B of the Sangh-BJP, Sri Sri Ravishankar is Plan C and asked the spiritual guru to be "wary" of the two organisations.

Singh remarked on the micro-blogging site Twitter "Plan A, B and C are of Sangh/ BJP to divert the minds of the people from their involvement in terror activities to corruption. Plan A -- Baba Ramdev. Crashed. Plan B -- Anna? Plan C -- Sri Sri Ravi Shankar soon to start his campaign".

In another post on the same day he had, "I hold Sri Ravi Shankarji in high esteem and have done a course in the Art of Living as CM MP in 2001. He should be wary of Sangh/ BJP."

Reacting to it, Sri Sri had said, "People write so many things. I do not react to every comment. Everybody is entitled to his views."
