Accusing the government of trying to defame Team Anna with charges that would not stick, he told ‘Seedhi Baat’ programme in Aaj Tak that “there’s a scheme to separate Anna Hazare from Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant Bhushan.
“The government is expenses crores of rupees for this. Stories are being planted in the media,” Kejriwal was quoted as saying in a statement issued by the channel.
He has said that Team Anna was target Congress because no other party could assure a strong Lokpal Bill at the Centre. “After the pledge given by the Prime Minister and Sonia Gandhi, we are convinced that there will be a strong Lokpal at the Centre. When this will happen, I don’t know,” he said.
On the allegations leveled by him that government was tapping phones of Team Anna members, he said that they were not going to file an FIR because it was not a problem for us. “Government can go on tapping our phones, following us, excavating up our power lines,” he said.
