planting stories in media to separate Anna Hazare from him and
other prominent team members Kiran Bedi and Prashant Bhushan.

with charges that would not stick, he told a news channel that "there`s a conspiracy to separate
Anna Hazare from Kiran Bedi, Arvind Kejriwal and Prashant
"The government is spending crores of rupees for this.
Stories are being planted in the media," Kejriwal was quoted
as saying in a statement issued by the channel.
He said Team Anna was targeting Congress because no other
party could assure a strong Lokpal Bill at the Centre. "After
the assurance given by the Prime Minister and Sonia Gandhi, we
are confident that there will be a strong Lokpal at the
Centre. When this will happen, I don`t know," he said.
On the allegations levelled by him that government was
tapping phones of Team Anna members, he said they were not
going to file an FIR because it was not a problem for us.
"Government can go on tapping our phones, following
us...digging up our power lines," he said.
