Ghaziabad: Team Anna members should refrain
from "levelling charges" against each other and not let
anything fracture their unity, yoga guru Ramdev said on Sunday.

"They should not indulge in levelling charges against
each other and they must keep away from any controversial act
because the government has one motto -- to defame all those
who speak against it," Ramdev said here.

His statement comes against the backdrop of growing
clamour for revamp in the Team Anna`s core committee after key
member Kumar Vishwas shot off a letter to Hazare demanding its
suspension.

The core committee met without Hazare yesterday following
a series of allegations against key members Arvind Kejriwal
and Kiran Bedi as well as the resignations of two prominent
activists Rajinder Singh and PV Rajagopal citing the
political turn taken by Hazare`s anti-corruption movement.

Team Anna today announced that it will formulate a
Constitution for its anti-corruption movement and revamp the
Core Committee after that.

Ramdev also made an appeal to the public to continue
fighting against corruption and black money.

"Black money of Indians deposited in banks in Switzerland,
Singapore and other countries has been siphoned off to
different banks in Britain and America for fear that their
names will be unearthed," he alleged.

In Noida for a two-day Yoga seminar, he demanded that
politicians, including mayors, MLAs, MPs, heads of political
parties and former and present ministers, bureaucrats, and
corporates declare their properties and assets.

"The government must adopt a procedure to bring back the
black money stashed abroad and for it the government must use
the anti-corruption and money laundering acts," he said.

On a question about property owned by him, Ramdev said
that he has not a "single paisa in his own name."

The government must act to curb corruption and black money
rather than create "troubles" for those who raise the voice
against black money and corruption, he said.

"I have full faith in Indian judiciary and justice will
be done with Balakrishna," he said on a question about his
close aide.
