Clarifying his stand on the issue that is now being seen as a rift within Team Anna, Kejriwal said on Twitter, "I had to leave fast venue bcoz I am very unwell. I told this to Anna and swamiji. It is wrong to say that I left in protest (sic)." He also added, "I have the greatest respect for swamiji."
Standing by his view on the need to name the corrupt ministers, Kejriwal said that he was ready to convince Ramdev on the need to name those involved in graft. He stated in his tweet, "This is a political battle and we will have to name and shame and demand severe action against corrupt people. I will personally speak to Swami Ramdev ji. I am sure I will be able to persuade him that naming is important."
Baba Ramdev in his speech had slighted Kejriwal in public, when he said, "Today, we thought that we will not take anybody's name. But Arvind took the names. Arvind Kejriwal should not have taken names. It could create controversy. Please don't see it as a personal attack. This fight is not against any individual."
