New Delhi: Activist Medha Patkar on Monday came
out in support of Arvind Kejriwal, who is facing allegations
of diverting donations for Team Anna to his trust, saying that
the truth will come out once the audit is completed.
"I don`t go with allegations against Arvind Kejriwal.
Swami Agnivesh himself has told me that he has not levelled
any allegations but only referring to questions raised by some
quarters," Patkar said.
Her comments came against the backdrop of allegations
that Kejriwal deposited donations collected for Hazare
agitation in a trust run by him from which the names of major
team members were missing.
She said there cannot be "any doubts or questions" about
it as the special audit is on and it will be made public soon.
"Any doubts if anybody has should be raised after the
special audit," he said.
On Congress leader Digvijay Singh`s allegation that BJP`s
defence of Kejriwal had exposed their links, she said, "Swami
has always been unhappy about the decision making process (of
Team Anna)... but Singh should not link this with BJP`s
She said opposition parties "always take advantage of
whatever happens in the country, especially something that
is anti-establishment and anti-Centre".
Former colleagues Agnivesh and Rajinder Singh had found
fault with Kejriwal over depositing donations collected for
Hazare agitation in a trust run by him from which the names of
major team members were missing.
Dismissing Agnivesh`s allegations, Team Anna said the
activist might be levelling such accusations "out of anger" as
he was removed from the team following the surfacing of a
video clip which purportedly showed him asking a person to
deal strongly with Hazare.
