VHP defends Baba Ramdev, attacks Digvijay Singh

Allahabad: VHP on Friday criticised Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh for his recent remarks on yoga guru Baba Ramdev asking him to come clean on the source of funding for his activities.

"The Congress party has never acknowledged the contributions of Hindu saints towards preserving the nation`s moral fabric. Digvijay Singh`s recent remarks against Baba Ramdev are yet another instance of showing disrespect to Hindu saints and their contributions," VHP international president Ashok Singhal told reporters here.

He was reacting to Singh`s recent comments where he had said that before launching any anti-corruption campaign, the Yoga guru must prove that he himself was not in possession of black money.

Accusing Ramdev of targeting the Congress, Singh said, "He (Ramdev) must understand that we are also as much against blackmoney as he claims to be. My only request to him is that he should be fair.
