New Delhi, Jun 25: The meeting on Friday, Jun 24 between LK Advani and Team Anna revealed that their anti-corruption crusade is bereft of both politics and ideology.

The Anna team is beating up support for their version of the Lokpal Bill before the all-party meeting on July 2.

For this, the crusaders are willing to overlook the political colour of the support, as it was evident from Anna's endorsement of Narendra Modi's leadership qualities.

Hence, on Thursday, Jun 23 Prakash Karat, CPM general secretary was met by them who knocked Advani's door on Friday, Jun 24.

Though the leader of the pack, Hazare, was not present to grace the occasion, Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejriwal and Manish Sisodia compensated for his absence. A press statement issued later said 'India Against Corruption' will make a formal presentation to the BJP brass once Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley are back in town.

The group had a brief discussion on various lokpall bill joint drafting committee meetings and the differences between the government and the civil society representatives on the panel, as the BJP leaders were out.

"The meeting was positive. Advani told us that the country needs an effective Lokpal. He requested us to make a detailed presentation before senior BJP leaders," Bedi said.
