Antony denies Hazare objected his inclusion in Lok Pal panel

"This is totally false and baseless," Antony told a meet-the-press here when his reaction was sought on the reports in this regard.

"Who told you this. Did Anna Hazare telephone you to say this?," he asked the reporter who put the question.

Antony said there was no substance in CPI-M leader V S Achuthanandan's charge that he had been silent over the Adarsh scam.

"I ordered the CBI probe into Adarsh Flat scam without much fanfare about it. Those who found guilty in the investigation, would be punished," he said.

On Achuthanandan's jibe at him that he is a "pseudo idealist" and a "fake sanyasin", Antony quipped saying "first of all I am not a sanyasin but a family man with two children."
