Dump most of Team Anna, join us: Subramanian Swamy tells Hazare

May 30, 2012 13:52 IST

With Team Anna under attack for levelling allegations against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Janata Party chief Subramanian Swamy on Wednesday asked Anna Hazare to leave the group, which is in the grip of "Naxalite minded crazies" and join him and Ramdev in the fight against graft.

"Team Anna has always been in the grip of Naxalite minded crazies. It is time Anna Hazare dump most of Team Anna and join the Action Committee Against Corruption in India and Ramdev for a nationalist approach to fighting corruption," Swamy said.

He said Team Anna has accused Dr Singh of corruption and want him to be prosecuted but alleged that they have not specified under which section of Prevention of Corruption Act is he prima facie guilty.

He alleged that the "glib accusations" appear to derail the legal steps to bring the corrupt to book, which the ACACI was undertaking.

Last Saturday, Team Anna had brought the prime minister under the line of fire, levelling corruption allegations against him and seeking an independent probe by the Special Investigation Team comprising three prominent retired judges.
