Putting all speculations to rest, prominent member of Team Anna, Arvind Kejriwal today said that lawyer Prashant Bhushan is still a part of the core team. He said that there is a conspiracy against Team Anna.
Earlier, Anna Hazare said Team Anna was not in agreement with Bhushan's views and that J&K was an integral part of India.
“Kashmir is an integral part of India. Bhushan has given his personal opinion and Team Anna is not in agreement with the views,” Hazare told mediapersons.
Hazare pointed out that he had visited some of the most sensitive areas of the state without any security, since “Kashmir belongs to my country and nobody can stop us from moving freely in the state”.
He said for the cause of Kashmir, he was ready to do anything. “Sir kata sakte hain, par jhuka sakte nahin,” he said.
“I am ready to sacrifice my life anytime for Kashmir as it belongs to India and will always remain with my country,” Hazare asserted.
Bhushan, who has been campaigning with Hazare against corruption, had favoured a plebiscite in Kashmir. He was bashed up in his chamber in Supreme Court in Delhi Wednesday by a youth of the rightwing Sri Ram Sene for this statement.
"Team Anna was formed only for the Janlokpal Bill, corruption-free India and right to reject, recall, decentralisation. We don't talk about anything other than this," Hazare said.
Significantly, Hazare’s views came in the wake of Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray’s statement in Thursday's Dopahar Ka Saamna in which he lauded the attacks on Bhushan.
