Earlier in Jun, the anti-corruption activists had alleged that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and 14 members of his cabinet including Pranab, the then Finance Minister, are corrupt. Team Anna had sought a probe by a Special Investigation Team into the charges.
"The Prime Minister is corrupt... now we have a corrupt President as well," Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal told reporters in New Delhi yesterday.
Kejriwal and his colleagues will launch an indefinite joint fast on Jul 25 at Jantar Mantar to press their demand for a strong Lokpal. They are also planning to condemn the government's alleged failure to tackle corruption. Yesterday, Team Anna organised a car and bike rally to garner support for their agitation.
