New Delhi, Oct 13: Anna Hazare Thursday said there was no difference between Congress and the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) as both are misleading the people.
‘You have tried to link me with RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) and BJP (Bharatiya Janata Party). By showing the dispute between them (Congress and BJP), they are trying to mislead the people of this country,’ Hazare said in his letter to Congress leader Digvijay Singh.
‘There is no difference between BJP and Congress as both the parties are misleading the people. You think that by my anti-Congress campaign, the BJP will be benefited, but why is the Congress giving them (BJP) a chance,’ he asked.
The letter came in response to Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh’s letter Tuesday accusing Hazare of links with the RSS.
In his eight-page letter, written in Hindi, the 74-year-old crusader wondered whether the Congress leader was not aware his party was tainted as it has many corrupt people.
‘Today, many Congress leaders are in jail. Was your party unaware that they were corrupt? But it seems that the party was in the habit of carrying these corrupt people along. This is the reason corruption has widely spread in the country,’ he said.
‘In such a situation, there is no difference between Congress and any other party,’ he added.
‘There is a lack of willingness in the part of the party to bring the Jan Lokpal bill,’ he added.
