Sharad Yadav slams Team Anna
New Delhi, Aug 4 (ANI): National Democratic Alliance (NDA) Convenor and chief of Janata Dal-united (JD-U) Sharad Yadav, on Saturday, slammed veteran anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare and his aides for painting all lawmakers in the same colour.
Interacting with mediapersons here, Yadav said, "How can they say that there is no honest person in the parliament? What kind of an allegation is this? By what authority do they say this? They are abusing the federal structure. Why will anyone believe what they are saying? If they want to cleanse the parliament from the bad elements then they are free to do it. No one is objecting to that and no one is stopping them. If by taking this step they can achieve success then our wishes are with them."
On the ninth day of the agitation of Team Anna, Hazare, in a surprise move, announced that he and his associates Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai, would call off their fast on Friday.
He announced to provide a political alternative to people in the next 2014 national polls to achieve their aim to get Lokpal Bill passed which would help to root out corruption in the country.
Hazare's team had demanded the setting up of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) of retired judges of Supreme and High Courts, to probe charges of corruption against 15 cabinet ministers, including the Prime Minister.
They had sought the transferring of cases against political party leaders, which are being probed by the federal agency, the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to the SIT. (ANI)
