Cong, BJP in spat over Ramdev attacker's pic

A day after black ink was poured at Ramdev’s face, Congress and BJP on Sunday found themselves in a difficult situation with private TV channels airing pictures of his attacker Kamran Siddiqui purportedly in the company of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit and Rajnath Singh.

Dikshit is yet to react to the picture while the former BJP chief said he does not know when it was taken.

However, the Yoga guru himself was quick to blame the Congress, saying, “Chief Minister of Delhi is seen in a photo with him.

And, news stories are circulating on the Internet about this, some explanation they (Cong) must give,” Ramdev told a TV channel referring to Dikshit’s picture with Siddiqui. Rajnath Singh also had to answer questions as photographs of him along with Siddiqui appeared on TV.

“I don’t know when that picture was taken, I don’t have any information about it,” Rajnath Singh said. It was BJP leader Shahnawaz Hussain who rose to Singh’s defence.
