New Delhi, Oct 21: Taking a dig at Team Anna member Kiran Bedi who is facing fresh controversy, top CPI leader A B Bardhan today (Oct 21) wondered what will happen if those involved in corruption defend their actions on the pretext of helping their organisations.

"Ask her, she is serving inflated bills...We are not in the habit of serving inflated bills," CPI General Secretary Bardhan, who along with his party colleagues is sitting on a 24-hour fast here demanding a strong Lokpal, said.

He was responding to allegations that the former IPS officer Bedi was overcharging companies and institutions by inflating her travel expenses. She is also accused of availing discounts using her gallantry medal.

Bedi defended herself, saying that the money went to India Vision Foundation, run by her, and there was no personal gain it it.

"(Imagine) anybody who is indulging in corruption propagating this (defence)," Bardhan told reporters.
