Team Anna member Kiran Bedi attacks PM
New Delhi: Team Anna member Kiran Bedi today invoked Mahabharata to attack Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in the alleged irregularities in the coal block allocation.
"PMO clears Prime Minister. Did Dhritarashtra in Mahabharata not support Kauravas even after they attempted to disrobe Draupadi? Indian genes/culture? or?," Bedi tweeted.
She said Team Anna is focussed on the party in power at the Centre because it alone can give an effective central law not opposition.
Her remarks came after Prime Ministers Office wrote a letter to Anna Hazarre rejecting their demands for setting up a Special Investigation Team to probe corruption allegations against Singh and his 14 Cabinet colleagues and setting up special fast-track courts for trying MPs accused of corruption.
Bedi had said yesterday that the letter to Hazare was "wishy-washy". "PMO`s letter to Anna ji on allegations made on PM and 14 ministers is absolutely wishy-washy," she had said.
After the PMO`s letter, Team Anna has said it will go ahead with the indefinite fast from July 25 as planned.
