Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Hits Back at Digvijaya
NEW DELHI: Congress leader Digvijaya Singh denounced Sri Sri Ravi Shankar as a BJP-RSS agent, prompting the spiritual guru to ask the politician to join his Art of Living course.

Saying he could not respond to everything stated about him, Ravi Shankar suggested in Bangalore that Digvijaya Singh could join Art of Living, a group that offers various courses to achieve better quality life.

"People write a lot of things about everyone, I cannot respond to all of them," Ravi Shankar said.

"I will continue to work against corruption. I am not afraid of anyone," he added.

Ravi Shankar's comments followed Digvijaya Singh's comments earlier Thursday that Ravi Shankar was "Plan C" of the BJP-RSS combine in order to divert public attention from its "terror links".

He identified the other "plans" of the Bharatiya Janata Party and its ideological mentor Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh as yoga guru Baba Ramdev as well as anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare.

"I have been saying from day one, that all this is a part of the overall plan BJP-RSS combine," Digvijaya Singh said, referring to the anti-corruption campaigns by the three that have shaken the government and the Congress party.

"They want to divert the attention of people of this country from the issue of involvement of Sangh activists in terror," he said.

"Therefore, there is an overall plan. Plan A Baba Ramdev, Plan B Anna and Plan C Sri Sri Ravi Shankar Maharaj," he added.

In a separate statement, Ravi Shankar said while legislation was needed to combat corruption, "a law alone cannot bring down corruption. A moral and spiritual wave has to be created".

He said he has been speaking against corruption and would continue to do so. "Even yesterday (Wednesday), (I) administered oath to one lakh people to not give or take bribe," the Ari of Living founder added.

Digvijaya Singh said that while the Congress had taken steps to control corruption, the BJP had not done much.

"UPA (United Progressive Alliance) government has taken all possible steps," he said, referring to the Right to Information Act and the jailing of allegedly corrupt politicians, officials and company executives.

"Why did BJP not register a case against Bangaru Laxman when he was caught taking money on tape? Why a case was not registered against Jaya Jaitley when she was caught on tape striking a deal with an arms dealer in defence minister's house?" he asked.

The BJP hit back.

"Digvijaya Singh may make any plan he likes, he will only destroy the reputation of Congress in the country," BJP leader Ravishankar Prasad said.

"The country is angry over black money and corruption. Whoever speaks against it, whether Baba Ramdev or Annaji or civil society, he (Digvijaya) goes against all of them and says all kinds of things," he said.

1: HUM SUB CHOR HAI

Sri Sri Sri Ravi Shankar who is talking about corruption must understand this is also corruption when he wants to run his own enterprise raking in billions similar to the one run by Baba Ram Dev raking in billions under his control. In 2006 both Sri Sri & Baba Ram Dev were asked a very simple question in writing when both talk about uplifting the unfortunate in the society why they are not working together? Both talk about simple living & corruption free society why both are living a super luxurious life with access to most expansive and luxurious gadgets.
As far as Anna Hazare is concerned he is under the control of domestic pets of CIA like Bedi, Kejriwal, Bhushans etc. That is also corruption.
Then Digvijay singh referring to inaction by BJP government under Atal Bihari against Jaya Jaitley & Defense Minister George Fernandez for Rs 400 crore kickback in $1150 crore Barack Missiles from a terrorist state Israel is forgetting that it was Congress regime of Manmohan Singh who failed to prosecute all of them including Atal Bihari Bajpai for failure to act. Rather congress Defense Minister Parnab Mukherjee ridiculed APJ Kalam for not favoring purchase of Barack Misilles to save their common master Israel. The terrorist state of Israel is the only country in the world who can give 45 percent kick back to Indian politicians in defense deals. 25 percent to ruling party, 15 percent to main opposition and 5 percent to Anil Ambanis Samajwadi Party. A tiny country of less than 6 mil is supplying more than 50 percent of defense needs of India with sub standard products and at the same time selling most modern defense technology to Indias hostile neighbor China after stealing from their colony United States of Israel. At the same time they are supporting free Arms to Pakistan through their colony USI another hostile neighbor of India who is getting help from China also.
