Kejriwal to break ties with India Against Corruption soon

Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, Nov 24: Ties between Arvind Kejriwal and India Against Corruption (IAC) are going to end soon. Keeping his promise to his mentor Anna Hazare, Kejriwal would snap his ties with the organisation which he has been leading so far.

Kejriwal along with Prashant Bhushan and 30 other national executive members would decide his new political party name on Saturday, Nov 24. Kejriwal and Co would also finalise the symbol of the party on the same day and will announce the party name on Monday, Nov 26.

The social activist-turned-politician earlier had stated that he would not use IAC name during any of his movements as Anna had demanded to retain IAC with new Team Anna which is known as Team Anna 2.

The septuagenarian also restricted Kejriwal from using his name and image during his political activities. Anna and Kejriwal had parted their ways over the latter's decision to enter politics. However, Anna was not moved by his former aide's decision and put an end to their relation after disbanding Team Anna which had introduced a new wave of peace protest in the country with indefinite fast unto death demanding Lokpal Bill.

Kejriwal and his team would meet in New Delhi. He was quoted as saying, "The name (of the party) will be announced and its formal launching ceremony is on Monday at Jantar Mantar."

The RTI activist also said, "Work on the party's constitution is complete and it will be formally adopted on Nov 26. But we will announce and discuss this and other issues with our colleagues across the country on Saturday."

Meanwhile, Anna and his new team too would meet at his village Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra on Saturday. Kiran Bedi and former Indian Army chief VK Singh are expected to be present in the meeting.
