Team Anna met here on Sunday to discuss its future course of action amidst their resentment against yoga guru Ramdev’s “one-up manship” despite both groups deciding to support each other in their fights.
Mr. Hazare was present at the meeting which was also attended by other prominent members, including Arvind Kejriwal, Shanti Bhushan, Prashant Bhushan and Kiran Bedi.
The meeting came against the backdrop of Team Anna expressing its disagreement in the way in which Mr. Hazare was forced to address a press meet along with Baba Ramdev after both had discussions.
Sources said a section in Team Anna is not in favour of any joint struggle with Baba Ramdev, whom they feel has a “credibility crisis” as he is facing cases, though they are not averse to supporting his agitations.
Team Anna also discussed its future course of action as government is likely to bring the Lokpal Bill in Rajya Sabha.
At the press conference in Gurgaon two days ago, Mr. Hazare and Baba Ramdev announced a series of agitations starting from May 1 followed by a joint fast at Jantar Mantar on June 3.
On May 1, Mr. Hazare will start his agitation from Shirdi while Baba Ramdev will embark on an yatra from Durg in Chhattisgarh.
After an on-and-off relationship for about an year, Mr. Hazare had announced last month that both Team Anna and Ramdev will support each other and will participate in each other’s agitations against corruption. PTI
