Medha, Anna wont attend core committee meet

medha-patkarNew Delhi: Medha Patkar said she will not be attending Saturday’s Core Committee meeting, which Mr. Hazare and Justice Santosh Hegde have also decided to skip. “I don’t think there is a difference of opinion. The only thing is a bit of overhauling is certainly becoming necessary because there are a number of allegations and Core Committee members are being targeted,” she said. she reiterated all memebers are with the movement.“The movement does not mean only Core Committee,” she asserted.

When asked about Justice Santosh Hegde’s remarks on allegations faced by Team Anna members that “it’s a nice churning and ‘manthan’ is going on”, Ms. Patkar said he was not giving any opinion against the Committee or the movement.“He has the right to give his own frank opinion whether it is with respect to any allegation or otherwise,” she said.

Anna Hazare  will not attend the meeting as he has extended his “maun vrat” or vow of silence.
