Anna Hazare has invited Army Chief Gen V K Singh to join his team after his retirement to fight corruption.

"We will welcome Gen V K Singh, if he wants to involve in this national movement after retirement," Hazare was quoted as saying by his close aide Suresh Pathare in twitter.

Hazare's response came to a question yesterday while he was touring Maharashtra.

"Anna's invite to General VK is most appropriate. Imagine if ex-servicemen join Anna they can become a formidable voice against corruption," Team Anna member Kiran Bedi tweeted on Sunday.

This is the first time Team Anna is extending a direct invitation to Singh to join his movement.

Last month, Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal while extending support to Singh had said that the Army chief they were sure that he will take a decision on what he will do after retirement on May 31.
