Lokpal bill: Govt harassing me, says Anna Hazare

first_imgA day after the civil society members of the Lokpal panel lashed out at the government for trying to kill the anti-corruption bill, Anna Hazare said he was being harassed by the government. He says the government is raising unnecessary issues regarding his Hind Swaraj Trust. A team from the charity commissioner’s office had visited Ralegan Siddhi on June 6. It had obtained a few records from the trust for inspection. The government team also recorded statements of the trustees in connection with allegations of financial irregularities. Hazare says the charity commissioner’s office was charging his trust with financial irregularities, only to harass him.  The anti-corruption activist, who is leading a campaign against the government, has dared the authorities to file a case against his trust. “We have submitted all papers to the charity commissioner office. If we are at fault, let them file a case against us. We are ready to fight the case, because we are clean,” said Hazare.  At a public Lokpal debate, conducted by Headlines Today on Thursday, Hazare said while the government was making all sorts of allegations against his team instead of engaging in a constructive discussion on the Lokpal bill, his trust was also not spared. However, the investigating agencies would not be able to find anything, because he had “no bank balance”, Hazare said.For more news on India, click here.For more news on Business, click here.For more news on Movies, click here.For more news on Sports, click here.last_img
