Digvijay wants Ramdev's properties probed

"Probe should conducted into the properties of Baba Ramdev and action should be taken against him under the Prevention of Money Laundering Act," Singh, who arrived here to take part in the Jebera assembly by-poll campaign in neighbouring Damoh district, told reporters.

"I don't consider Ramdev as a saint. I also don't consider his close associate Balkrishana as Acharya," he said.

Asserting Congress' seriousness on wiping out corruption, he said both the Right to Information Act (RTI) and the Prevention of Money Laundering Act were introduced during the party regime, and that the discussion on the Lokpal Bill is also going on under the same government.

Singh also demanded a probe into the properties of Madhya Pradesh Assembly Speaker Ishwardas Rohani, as he alleged that Rohani not only possessed "black money", but also has accounts in the "foreign banks".

The Congress leader also criticised the state Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan for re-inducting Ajay Bishnoi into the ministry, "despite the fact that he was removed from the Cabinet on the allegations of corruption against him."

Singh also claimed that during his ten-year tenure as the MP Chief Minister, stern measures were taken against the corrupt.
