Nagpur: Janata Party President Subramanian
Swamy Thursday alleged that Team Anna was behaving like "Naxalites" as they were "not keen on solutions" and instead bent on dragging the issue of corruption.

"Though Anna Hazare is spreading the anti-corruption
movement and wants a strong Jan Lok Pal bill to tackle the
menace, his team members are behaving like Naxalites," Swamy
told newsmen, here today.

"Team Anna was not keen on solutions but dragging the
issue and was more interested in defaming the system," he
said.

He also targeted Kiran Bedi, without naming her, and said, "some Magsaysay award winners...are not the only intellectuals in the country to teach the rest."

On the ongoing spectrum issue, Swamy said he decided to
move the Supreme Court -- challenging the trial court order
which held that Home Minister P Chidmbaram did not indulge in
any criminal conspiracy in the 2G case and refused to make him
an accused in it -- as he was hopeful to get justice.

"The Lower Court judge could not understand the law of
Prevention of Corruption Act properly though it was 50 percent
in my favour. The spectrum case is not an IPC crime like rape
or murder..Chidambaram acted with a criminal mind. Hence, I
approached the apex court," Swamy told reporters.

He said that earlier also he received several setbacks in
lower courts but higher courts have given him justice.
Also, Swamy said that his next mission was to expose
alleged irregularities and huge corruption in Air India.

On UPA government, he said after Presidential elections
this year, it will collapse and mid-term elections are
imminent.

To a question, he ruled out the possibility of formation
of a Third Front and said, apparently referring to TMC, "You
see how political parties are behaving. They are the possible
constituents."
