Guwahati, Dec 12: Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi today flayed Team Anna members, alleging that they had political ambitions and their main purpose seemed to be to bring down the UPA government.
“I got a feeling by observing their (Team Anna's) statements and mode of protest that they have political ambitions...Their main purpose seems to be to oust the UPA regime. I do not understand why he is always criticising the Prime Minister, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi,” Gogoi told reporters here.
He said Hazare is not the first person in the country to fight corruption and there have been many before him who are remembered for their strong opposition to corruption.
“Anna is criticising the report of the parliamentary committee on Lokpal but he seems to forget that the committee comprises members from various political parties and not only the Congress,” Gogoi said.
Assam Lokpal bill would be placed in the assembly during the budget session, he said, adding “But it is impossible to totally wipe out corruption from all levels.”
