Jaipur: In a bid to weaken the stand of Civil Society and slander the image of its members, Union Minister and party in-charge of Rajasthan Mukul Wasnik has joined the bandwagon of Digvijay Singh hurling diatribe at Satyagraha movement of Team Anna.

Addressing a meeting held in Jaipur on Wednesday, Wasnik took a dig at Anna Hazare for his movement against corruption and said, “Satyagraha is meant for cowards and not for braves.”
 
In a democracy nobody has right to impose his views on others, but the members of Civil Society are doing so, he added.

“The government has already prepared the draft on Lokpal and would table it in Parliament. But the procedure of Bill cannot be expedited in fear of Anna’s further fasting,” he added.

Wasnik slammed the members of Civil Society for issuing disparaging remarks against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and Congress President Sonia Gandhi. “We will not tolerate this and will not spare them,” he added.

Attacking Baba Ramdev, Congress spokesman Shakeel Ahmed said the yoga guru should first give reply regarding his black money stashed away abroad. “Ramdev is part of the BJP conspiracy to mislead people and defame the Congress party.  The BJP should stop its attempts to create political instability in the country,” he added.
