Ghaziabad: Stung with criticism that Anna movement is an Anti-Congress move led by Saffron powerbrokers, Team Anna’s Core Committee decided recently that the movement should not target a single political party in the future.
However, sources said activist Medha Patkar and some others argued that the movement should not target Congress alone on the Lokpal issue. Patkar did not attend the meeting but sent a note in this regard.
Arvind Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan and other members attended the deliberations during which they discussed the future course of action, including “short term and long term strategy” of the movement.
Sources said the members who attended the meeting were of the view that Team Anna should not target any single party.
Bhushan said some prominent members could not attend the meeting and they will discuss today’s deliberations with Hazare and others.
“We discussed the pros and cons of various suggestions. We discussed the future programmes. We discussed how to build the campaign. No decision has been taken as Anna was not here as well as some other members,” Bhushan said.
