Mumbai: The Shiv Sena on Friday accused Team
Anna members of "playing" with the life of the Gandhian for
their vested interests and asked them to sit on fast instead.
"(Kiran) Bedi and others have personal disputes with the
government, and for these disputes, these people are playing
with Hazare`s life," Shiv Sena chief Bal Thackeray said in the
editorial of the party mouthpiece `Saamana`.

"Though, Bedi was in the police department for a long
time, no government made her the Delhi police commissioner.
One should go into the reasons for this," the editorial said.

"Let (Arvind) Kejriwal, Bedi, (Manish) Sisodiya fast for
next 10-12 days, let their bodies feel the brunt of the fast.
If these people are going to have meals twice a day and snacks
four times a day and still continue with their anti-corruption
stir, it is a betrayal of Hazare," the Sena chief said.
Thackeray had recently written to Hazare, appealing him
to end his fast for the Jan Lokpal Bill.

Thackeray`s grandson Aditya met Hazare in Delhi and
conveyed the support of the "whole Shiv Sena family" for his
cause.
