Hang us if that helps, says Bedi

“There is obviously a pattern to defame every member of Team Anna. It has been systematic from day one,” said former IPS officer Bedi, who is facing allegations of overcharging institutions by inflating her travel expenses.

“Team Anna is paying a personal cost for raising national concerns on rampant corruption and voter awareness to ensure the passing of the Jan Lokpal Bill in Parliament,” Bedi said.

Her response came as another activist Arvind Kejriwal was accused of depositing the donations for the Hazare campaign for a strong Lokpal in a private trust run by him.

Noting that people are aware of the machinations of the detractors, she said it only underscores the need to stay focussed on the Winter Session of Parliament and ensure that the Jan Lokpal Bill is enacted.

“It is evident why reputed persons shy away from speaking up. Which leaves civil society without independent voices. This serves the vested interests,” she added.
