Team Anna dissolution was waiting to happen: BJP

BJP said it is not surprised at Anna Hazare`s decision to disband his team, saying this was waiting to happen.



New Delhi: BJP on Monday said it is not surprised at Anna Hazare`s decision to disband his team, saying this was waiting to happen.

"I think this had to happen. Now that Team Anna has withdrawn the agitation and the fast has ended, the team has been disbanded. Team Anna is now going to enter politics," BJP spokesperson Prakash Javadekar said.

However, he did not appear very optimistic about the prospects of Team Anna in the political arena.

"There are more than 500 parties and some of them are represented in Parliament as well. But everybody has a right to form a party and to contest elections," Javadekar said.

He maintained BJP has been fighting the menace of corruption for a long time and is in favour of a strong and effective Lokpal, an issue around which Hazare`s movement was built.
"We want the government to bring and pass the Lokpal Bill in this session of Parliament," Javadekar said.
