New Delhi: After Anna Hazare announced that
Congress is his target in the fight for a strong Lokpal, key
Team Anna members Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi today fired a
salvo at Sonia Gandhi, saying only a change in government will
help in getting a strong anti-corruption ombudsman.

"Getting Janlokpal sooner or later will not happen
without regime change. Time alone will tell when?" Bedi
tweeted.
Launching an attack on Gandhi, Kejriwal tweeted, "MPs do
not have the freedom to speak or vote against wishes of Party
High Command (PHC). Aren`t MPs bonded labors of PHC?" Kejriwal
tweeted in an apparent reference to the Congress President.

Bedi said, "we have witnessed the autocracy of High
Command. Are we seeing MPs representing will of their
constituencies who voted them to parliament?"
"High Command of the ruling party -- world`s largest
democracy. Remember when u vote next time on what/who you
want?" she said.

Their tweets came soon after Hazare said that he will
campaign against Congress, which he alleged cheated them the
maximum and that he found no reason to oppose any other party,
including BJP.

"Isn`t India a dictatorship of Party High Command
between 2 elections? Isn`t Indian democracy by the Party High
Command (PHC), of the PHC, for the PHC? Is it by the people,
of the people, for the people? Is india really a democracy?"
Kejriwal asked.

In another tweet, Kejriwal claimed BSP and SP walked
out of Parliament to support Congress yesterday. "Did Govt
again misuse CBI to get their support?" he asked.

Bedi added, "everytime party in power is in need of
votes it closes ranks with Mayawatiji and Mulayamji. Other
times they are on their own."
