However, Hazare dismissed all reports saying that some of the core group members of Team Anna could be booted out from the team. He confirmed that representatives all religious minorities, tribals, Dalits would be included in the team to strengthen the campaign against corruption.
The anti-corruption crusader said, "We will take all sections in the Core Committee, Dalits, Muslims, Adivasis and all others. Nobody should complain that they were not given a chance."
The news over the rejig in Team Anna popped up when crucial team members - Arvind Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi, Prashant Bhushan were targetted over several corruption allegations.
However, Anna did not spare the critics who have attacked Team Anna by saying, "...those who are threatened by the Lokpal movement are attacking his supporters and close aides and trying to break his team. They fear that their political career will be jeopardised if a strong Lokpal mechanism comes into effect."
"That committee was for two-and-a-half months. But the committee that we will form now will be for a much longer period," added Anna.
