New Delhi, Aug 27: In initial reactions to Parliament recommending forwarding Anna Hazare's demands on Lokpal bill to Standing Committee, Team Anna member Kiran Bedi tonight said they were “very grateful” for the reconciliation in the largest interest of the country.
Bedi told PTI, “We are very grateful to the reconciliation in the largest interest of the country.” “Lets proceed now to build a honest India. Let each citizen now to vow neither to bribe not ask for. We should be vigilant here after,” she said thanking all those who fought alongside.
Terming it as a “win-win” situation for both sides, another Team Anna member Medha Patkar said while there was no surrender of Parliament supremacy, there was also victory of people's power.
However, she still termed it the development as “part betrayal” as this was not something which was agreed during a meeting between Team Anna and Law Minister Salman Khurshid.
“But I will not like to say (these things) now at this historic time when people's power is at its peak,” she said. PTI
