Crores of rupees being spent to malign Team Anna?


Anna Hazare
New Delhi, Nov 25: Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare alleged that crores are being spent by the government to put Jan Lokpal at threat and said that his activists would keep fighting for the same and reply to those seeking "cheap publicity".

Hazare, in his blog posted that "crores of rupees have been spent" to launch a campaign against his team by those who did not support his movement.

"Who is controlling from behind the faces who are all doing this? From where the funds are coming for such activities? There are many such questions," he said.

He further said that allegations were being repeated every now and then through different mediums, which he felt was being done purposely to garner one's attention away from the Jan Lokpal Bill.

"As we are fighting for the larger interest of the country, we have now decided not to respond to such accusations as those working against me and my team wants cheap publicity," he said.

He also said that his team was keeping a tab on the winter session of Parliament as the government had assured that the Jan Lokpal Bill will be passed in the session.

"This is not only important for us but also for those crores of Indians who had came to support...At any cost, our attention should not be diverted and so we have to be alert. For that, I and my colleagues are united," he said.

Anna's comment after Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar was slapped by a youth in Delhi over rampant corruption and food inflation had stirred controversy when he said, "bas ek hi" (only one) over the slapgate issue.

Later clarifying his stand, he said that his comment was portrayed in the wrong light, as it was a spontaneous reaction adding he was ready to apologise for the same.
