Govt defaming Team Anna members: Bedi

india Updated: Nov 05, 2011 23:23 IST

Anna Hazare associate Kiran Bedi on Saturday alleged the government has no business except to look for opportunities for tarnishing the image of Team Anna members for its political gains in the coming elections.

She told reporters that Arvind Kejriwal paid the amount demanded by the income tax department and she was also dragged in a controversy of discounted air fare, which showed that the government "did not leave a chance to defame them".

Bedi claimed Hazare team members "have no stigma of corruption" on them but the government wanted to defame them.

Cricketer Asish Nehra, who also attended the function of Bedi's NGO, said Anna's object is right to fight corruption and he appreciated the work done by Team Anna members to eradicate corruption from the country.

Nehra also said punishment awarded to Pakistan cricketers Salman Bhatt and Mohd Aamer for spot-fixing was a lesson and stressed on the need to maintain honesty and integrity in good spirit of the game.
