Team Anna meets amid demands for revamp

Team Anna
Ghaziabad (UP), Oct 29: Amid a clamour for its revamp over allegations of financial conduct by some key members, the core committee of Team Anna on Saturday met here with Kiran Bedi asserting that there were no differences within the movement.

Hazare, who is on a vow of silence from October 16, is not attending the meeting which comes against the backdrop of a series of allegations against key members Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi as well as resignation of two prominent activists Rajinder Singh and P V Rajagopal citing the political turn taken by Hazare's anti-corruption movement.

Prashant Bhushan, Shanti Bhushan, Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Bedi are attending the meeting. Activist Medha Patkar and Santosh Hegde are not attending the meeting.

Key member Kumar Vishwas, who had shot off a letter to Hazare demanding suspension of the core committee and its expansion, is not attending the meeting as he has left for Tokyo.

Ahead of the meeting, Bedi said there are no differences in the movement and they all want the Jan Lokpal Bill passed in the Winter Session of Parliament.

"We are not afraid for fighting for our rights. We will definitely fight for the Jan Lokpal Bill. We are not going to be deterred by the attacks launched on us. We will continue our work," she said.

With two key member Patkar and Kumar Vishwas demanding "overhaul" of the Core Committee, journalist Raju Parulekar, who is Hazare's official blogger, had said yesterday that the core committee of Team Anna will be expanded soon.

He, however, declined to go into details of when and how the revamp will take place
