Ghaziabad: Facing allegations of financial
misconduct, Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said that
he will quit the anti-graft movement if "corruption of even Rs
10 is proved" against him.
On the day the movement`s audit report for six months
starting April was released, Kejriwal also dared the Congress
and the BJP to make public information about all the donations
received by the parties.
Claiming that allegations were levelled against him and
other Team Anna members to weaken the movement, he said, "I
challenge those making the allegations, our accounts are on
the web site, if they prove corruption of even Rs 10, I will
leave the movement and surrender for being punished."
Speaking to reporters at the office of India Against
Corruption, he said, "Congress had recently made public funds
received by it. If the party wants to maintain a clean image,
it should release information about all the money received by
it from other sources".
He also asked the opposition BJP to follow suit.
Kejriwal`s statement came even as Congress leader Digvijay
Singh targeted him again.
"For Anna`s Super Team. Na Khata na Bahi. Jo Kejriwal
kahe woh sahi!" (No accounts, no books, whatever Kejriwal says
is right), Singh said on a popular micro-blogging website.
The AICC general secretary was apparently reacting to
allegations against Kejriwal of siphoning off Rs 80 lakh from
India Against Corruption to his trust and Team Anna`s decision
to return Rs 42.55 lakh to donors who "did not provide their
complete details and their sources of funding".
