Share post:


NEW DELHI: Swami Agnivesh, a close associate of Anna Hazare, was the target of the core Anna team which attacked him over a controversial video posted on ‘youtube’ where he is purportedly telling a person alleged to be a Union Minister that government act tough with the fasting Gandhian.

Agnivesh on his part claimed the video footage was “doctored and concoted” and part of a smear campaign against him and denied he was talking to Union Minister Kapil Sibal. The minister was involved in negotiations during the intitial stages of the stand-off between Team Anna and the Government.

Team Anna member Kiran Bedi alleged that Agnivesh has been caught on camera where is asking a person after addressing him as “Kapil”, “Maharaj aap inko itna kyu de rahe hai(Maharaj, why are you giving them so much?).

“Who’s Maharaj? whether it is Kapil Sibal on the other side. He said Sibal sahab, I heard that,” she said.

Bedi accused Agnivesh of being absolutely unethical. The core Anna Team and Agnivesh had developed differences during the course of Hazare’s fast.

Bedi told PTI that the footage has “shocked us all and we are very uncomfortable” with it. “Only he can answer this. He should own it or reject. However it leaves no doubt. It obviously tell us what happened.

He should tell us who is the person whom he mentioned in this,” she added.(PTI)
