“Jan Lok Pal activist Anna Hazare's “peace of mind" has been ruined by his own team. If he accepts this, his mind will be pure," said Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray in newspaper Saamna on Thursday.
“Keeping his vow of silence, Mr. Hazare has declared that a gang of four in the Union Cabinet has launched a malicious campaign against his aides. Mr. Anna's parallel government is doing somersaults. By its flip-flops it is trying to deceive people. Controversies surrounding the honest, intellectual and able friends of Anna Hazare are exploding like a row of firecrackers," said Thackeray.
He also said that if Prashant Bhushan's “traitorous" comment irked common men, Team Anna had no right to blame someone else for it. He also called Kiran Bedi a “volley of lies and deceit".
“If A Raja and Suresh Kalmadi say that they would return the money, would it fit within the ambit of the Jan Lokpal," the Sena chief asked.
Talking about Swami Agnivesh, he said that Agnivesh had also questioned the books of the non-government organisation run by Manish Sisodia and Arvind Kejriwal.
He further said that Anna Hazare and his team, hence, should not blame the "gang of four". “Anna's peace of mind is destroyed by his own people," he said.
