New Delhi: Key Team Anna member and noted RTI activist Arvind Kejriwal will on Friday head to Ralegaon Siddhi to hold discussions with Anna Hazare over the recent attack on his supporters and noted lawyer Prashant Bhushan.
As per reports, Kejriwal is highly upset over the manner in which key Team Anna members are being targeted and has blamed the police machinery of remaining a silent onlooker in such cases.
Speaking to a private TV news channel, Kejriwal said that the growing attacks on Anna’s supporters raise many questions. He stated that these incidents point to a foul play by the police as they have failed to prevent these unfortunate incidents.
“Were there some directions from the top?," he was quoted as saying.
"By beating our men they are not helping the nation," he added.
Team Anna members have voiced their concerns for bringing a special new law with tougher penalty to deal with sponsored violence in view of attacks on Prashant Bhushan and the Gandhian’s supporters in police presence.
Five supporters of Anna Hazare were on Thursday attacked by some workers of the Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena outside the Patiala House court here.
The incident took place a day after Anna Hazare’s close associate and lawyer Prashant Bhushan was attacked inside his chamber in the Supreme Court by three youths allegedly belonging to Sri Ram Sene and Bhagat Singh Kranti Sena for his allegedly provocative remarks on Kashmir.
