Who donated you a helicopter, Digvijay asks Ramdev



Firing a fresh salvo, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh has dubbed as "drama" Ramdev's nine-day-old fast and said there was no need for any further talks with the yoga guru since most of his demands had been met.

"I am very happy that this nautanki (drama) has now come to an end. Government has accepted most of his demands, so there is no need to talk," Singh told reporters in Bhopal.

Maintaining that there was no need for him to go on a hunger strike, he said, "Now, we should get on and have faith in the government which is really sincere about unearthing black money."

"Baba, who is demanding that the names of the people with black money should be made public, should name the person who had secretly donated a helicopter to him," Singh told media persons at his hometown in Raghogarh on Saturday evening.

"Baba is bringing the secret donations (black money) under the tax free category, making it white, and accumulating huge capital," Singh alleged.

"Baba was in the business of turning black money into white. It was against the Centre's Prevention of Money Laundering Act," he said demanding an inquiry into it.

Taking a potshot at Baba, he wondered from where the figure of Rs 400 lakh crore black money stashed abroad has cropped up.

"Slowly and gradually, things are becoming clear, which is why, the RSS and BJP have started distancing themselves from Baba," he said.

"Baba himself stated that the government had agreed to 99 per cent of his demands, which is why he is continuing his fast," he said.

Singh said that Ramdev's fast wasn't a satyagraha, but a 'Nautanki' in Ramlila ground in Delhi.
