One of the major criticism of Team Anna has been the Team’s silence over corruption charges against non-Congress politicians. Kiran Bedi, a member of Team Anna, spoke to Karan Thapar on CNN-IBN regarding the Team’s anti-Congress image.
When Thapar asked why they don’t target Yeddyurappa, former BJP cheif minister of Karnataka, who is accused of being involved in a mining scam, Bedi said, “Yeddyurappa is not sitting in the Parliament.”
“Karnataka doesn’t give me the Jan Lokpal Bill. The Parliament and Congress gives me the Jan Lokpal Bill,”
The focus is to get the Bill passed by the Parliament, Bedi added.
On Team Anna‘s anti-Congress pro-BJP image, Bedi said, “If BJP would have been in the centre, we would have equally not spared them.”
