Ghaziabad: Anna Hazare associate Kiran Bedi
on Saturday alleged the government has no business except to look
for opportunities for tarnishing the image of Team Anna
members for its political gains in the coming elections.

She told reporters here that Arvind Kejriwal paid the
amount demanded by the income tax department and she was also
dragged in a controversy of discounted air fare, which showed
that the government "did not leave a chance to defame them".

Bedi claimed Hazare team members "have no stigma of
corruption" on them but the government wanted to defame them.

Cricketer Asish Nehra, who also attended the function of
Bedi`s NGO, said Anna`s object is right to fight corruption
and he appreciated the work done by Team Anna members to
eradicate corruption from the country.

Nehra also said punishment awarded to Pakistan
cricketers Salman Bhatt and Mohd Aamer for spot-fixing was a
lesson and stressed on the need to maintain honesty and
integrity in good spirit of the game.
