'Brand IAC' caught in tug-of-war between Kejriwal and Anna


Former Team Anna members
New Delhi, Sept 22: With the differences between Anna Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal becoming all too evident with every passing day, the latest matter to crop out of the row seems to be on who will patronise the brand 'India Against Corruption' (IAC).

Former cop and Anna Hazare supporter Kiran Bedi has thrown a spanner in the works by staking claim to brand IAC. Kejriwal supporters and others who are backing his political outing have also emerged saying that it was Kejriwal who had ideated and created the IAC movement. Bedi had also added that Hazare needed a bigger premise to house the IAC.

Bedi also stated that the search for the new office has already commenced in order to keep up the steam for a strong Lokpal. There were differences earlier among the Kejriwal and Hazare group when Hazare aides accused Kejriwal of "stealing" their Facebook page. There also reports that the new Team Anna is ready to take up a legal fight to reclaim the Facebook page.

Hazare aides have claimed that Kejriwal had hijacked the 'brand IAC' and have asked Hazare to request Kejriwal to give up all control of web and database properties along with the logo and name of IAC movement. They further stated that none of these properties actually belong to Kejriwal alone.
