Aruna disapproves privilege motion against Bedi

Aruna Roy disapproved the move to bring breach of privilege motion against Kiran Bedi for her controversial remarks about Parliamentarians.



Jaipur: Social activist Aruna Roy on Saturday
disapproved the move to bring breach of privilege motion
against Kiran Bedi for her controversial remarks about
Parliamentarians during Anna Hazare`s anti-corruption
movement.

"I agree that such comments (by Bedi) are not
acceptable, but I disapprove the move to bring privilege
motion on the entire matter. There are other legal ways to
deal with such cases," she told reporters here.

On Income Tax department`s notice to Anna`s aide Arvind
Kejriwal to pay dues, Roy said the matter was not a current
one and the department should have taken the step to serve him
notice in 2007.

The activist said she would meet the Parliament`s
Standing Committee going into Lokpal issue on September 7 and
apprise it about the approach of National Campaign for
Peoples` Right to Information (NCPRI), with which she is
associated, towards anti-corruption and grievance
redressing structure.
