Bhopal: Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Uma Bharti on Sunday hit out at Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh for his remarks on the police action against Baba Ramdev, saying he had turned into a “spokesman” for those having black money.
Digvijay had called the yoga guru a “fraud” and justified the post-midnight crackdown on Ramdev and his followers at Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan.
She said it appeared that from being a general secretary of the Congress, Singh had turned into a “spokesman” for those having black money.
“Those having black money should be happy for having Singh as their new spokesman,” Bharti said here.
She also said that action against Ramdev would not end the issue of black money.
“The government is living in a fool’s paradise if it thinks that by arresting Baba Ramdev, it can sort out the problem of black money in the country,” the former BJP leader said.
