Putting all blame on the media, Roy stated, "I did not say that Anna Hazare was being ill advised. It was what a newspaper reported. Newspapers have said many things, the media twist our words, misrepresents us, calls me an NAC member when I speak as a NCPRI member. You can say what you like but I did not say that."
Meanwhile, Roy also informed that the third version of the Lokpal Bill has been submitted on Sunday, Aug 21. "The NAC is not connected nor associated with the Lokpal Bill. What I am saying concerns my campaign and my campaign, as a member of the NCPRI, has been drafting legislation for the last many years relating to corruption and accountability structure," said the NAC member.
Earlier Roy was quoted as saying that Anna was being ill-advised over the Jan Lokpal movement which evoked nation-wide protest.
