Jaipur, Oct 28: Anna Hazare has deviated from his objective and his team is full of arrogant people in which there is no room for good human beings, a former member of the Core Committee of the Gandhian's team today alleged.


Before launching his campaign against corruption, Anna Hazare had decided not to let it become political but in Hisar Lok Sabha bypoll, he supported a “corrupt” candidate, former Team Anna Core Committee member Rajendra Singh alleged.

“I was in Nairobi when Hazare decided to support a political candidate in Hisar and I immediately parted ways with Team Anna as I did not want to become part of a power brokering process,” he told reporters here.

He said he and P G Rajgopal dissociated themselves from Hazare's movement as it had “deviated from its objective”. “We thought the campaign will also raise public issues related to water and land but it did not do it,” Singh said.

The popular and media support to Hazare's anti-corruption campaign in Delhi had gone to the head of his aides and made them arrogant, he claimed.

Describing Kiran Bedi and Arvind Kejriwal as the most arrogant members of Team Anna, he said being former bureaucrats they are in the habit of throwing their weight about and imposing themselves on others.

Singh also said it was wrong to think that he had opted out of Team Anna out of fear of the Government.
