Congress, Govt hit out at `corrupt` Anna

Zeenews Bureau

New Delhi: The UPA government and Congress on Sunday launched a two-pronged attack against Team Anna, calling Anna Hazare corrupt and accusing him of misleading the people of India.

Addressing a press conference here, Union ministers Kapil Sibal and Ambika Soni lashed out at Anna Hazare for attacking Prime Minister Manmohan Singh in a letter.

Soni said, “In the 64 years since independence no one has spoken like this against any prime minister, not even the opposition”.


Anna is corrupt: Congress

Earlier, addressing a separate press conference in the national capital Congress spokesperson Manish Tewari called Anna Hazare corrupt and non-transparent.

Tewari said Anna Hazare is himself involved in corruption, adding people linked to the activist are facing serious charges of corruption including extortion, land grabbing and black mailing.

In its sharpest attack ever against Team Anna, the Congress spokesperson called the civil society group “A-Company”.

Tewari said Hazare has crossed all the limits of mannerism and has violated basic courtesy.

Going into specifics, Tewari said four organisations linked to Anna Hazare have been probed for corruption.

Reiterating his earlier remarks, Tewari said Justice PB Sawant Committee had found Anna guilty of involvement in a graft case.

It should be noted that the Maharashtra state government had instituted a Commission of Inquiry under Justice Sawant in September 2003 to inquire into the allegations of corruption and maladministration against several people, including Anna Hazare.

01)  Its shocking to note that only now Manish Tiwari is talking of  corruption of Anna Hazare, that has been in the public domain since 2005!

02) Why the Congress Government has't so far initiated prosecution against Anna??

03) I am giving below the findings of the said Commission, for the readers to read and decide for themselves on the issue:-

"Three trusts headed by Anna Hazare were also indicted in the P. B. Sawant commission report. Indian Rupee symbol.svg220,000 (US$4,910) spent by the Hind Swaraj Trust for Anna Hazare's birthday celebrations was concluded by the commission as illegal and amounting to a corrupt practice,[47][48]though Abhay Firodia, an industrialist subsequently donated Indian Rupee symbol.svg248,000 (US$5,530) to the trust for that purpose.[49] The setting apart of 11 acres of its land by the trust in favour of the Zilla Parishad without obtaining permission from the charity commissioner was concluded as a case of maladministration. The commission also concluded that the maintenance of accounts of the Bhrashtachar Virodhi Janandolan Trustafter 10 November 2001 had not been according to the rules and Indian Rupee symbol.svg46,374 (US$1,030) spent by the Sant Yadavbaba Shikshan Prasarak Mandal Trust for renovating a temple was in contravention to its object of imparting secular education.[47][48]"

Full report of the Commission is at,

04) When we supported Ramdev, with all his skeletons in the name of his numerous trusts and companies why can't we support Anna Hazare despite his own shortcomings - as he is presently fighting for welfare of all of us and of our future generations?

05) Finally, the Congress spokespersons had better realise that by throwing mud on someone who is fighting for the good of all, they own credibility is not going to enhance!!!

  1. According to Congress ANNA is Corrupt, then MAHATMA GANDHI must be most Corrupt because ANNA walks on Gandhian's way of life. Delhi Police and Congress has HIJACKED New Delhi.
