On a day the Lokpal Bill drafting panel chief Pranab Mukherjee said the committe's work wouldn't be affected by controversies surrounding its members and justice Santosh Hegde, Karnataka lokayukta, reiterated his desire to quit the panel, social activist Anna Hazare decided to go to New Delhi to sort out the muddle.

Hazare will reach the Capital on Saturday and discuss with his associates the controversies surrounding the panel co-chair Shanti Bhushan and his son Prashant Bhushan.

Speaking to HT at his village Ralegan Siddi on Friday, Hazare sought to distance himself from the issue of the CD purportedly containing a conversation between Shanti Bhushan and Samajwadi Party chief Mulayam Singh Yadav and also the Noida land allotment case.

"Why don't you go and talk to them? How do you expect me to react?"

Asked if he had spoken to the Bhushans or Hegde, Hazare said, "I have not talked to anybody. I have stopped making comments on the issue."

When told that people wanted to know what he thought about the issue, he said, "I have no magic wand. It will be really better if you talk to them (the Bhushans and Hegde)".
