Team Anna reiterates demand for probe against Pranab

Team Anna reiterated its demand for an investigation into alleged graft charges against United Progressive Alliance (UPA) presidential candidate Pranab Mukherjee.



New Delhi: Team Anna Friday reiterated its demand for an investigation into alleged graft charges against United Progressive Alliance (UPA) presidential candidate Pranab Mukherjee, saying a person facing so many serious charges would bring disrepute to the top post.

In a five-page letter to Mukherjee, Team Anna said: "A person aspiring to be the President of India should be above board. You would agree that a person facing so many serious charges would bring disrepute to the position of president if he were not absolved of all these charges before being appointed on that post. Therefore, we demand independent investigations into all these charges before you are considered for this position," said the letter signed by seven Team Anna members.

The letter comes after Mukherjee slammed Team Anna for the "unfair" and "motivated" graft allegations against him.
He had termed the allegations "false, self-seeking, malafide and made with ulterior motive and lacking any form of responsibility".
