Speaking to reporters here, the India Against Corruption member said that she is blessed to be associated with Anna Hazare and added that the Gandhian is a motivation.

The former IPS officer said that the nation must debate and politicians must listen to people.

Team Anna on Saturday said that BJP leader Arun Jaitley, CPI(M) leader Brinda Karat and leaders from several other parties will be among those who will visit the fast site at Jantar Mantar to discuss Lokpal Bill.
