Krishna to write to PM on Team Anna charges
New Delhi, May 31 (IANS) Rebutting charges hurled at him by Team Anna, External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna said Thursday he will write to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh to reject all the "motivated allegations" against him.
Krishna, however, remained non-commital on filing a defamation suit against Team Anna, saying he reserved the right to react in an appropriate manner if anybody made personal allegations against him.
"I will reply in detail to all these motivated allegations in a letter to the prime minister," Krishna told reporters here.
He was reacting to Team Anna's charges that Krishna, during his tenure as Karnataka chief minister, dereserved five forest blocks, comprising at least 10,000 hectares, for mining by private companies against the suggestions of the state forest secretary and forest minister.
"It is highly improper for the members of Team Anna to accuse me of something that is untrue. The matter is before the Supreme Court and the truth will come out soon," he said.
Krishna also asserted that he was not afraid of any probe and underlined that N. Santosh Hedge, the then Lokayukta of Karantaka, conducted a detailed investigation and exonerated him of all the allegations. Subsequently, the high court quashed the allegations, he said.
"I have no reservation for any kind of inquiry against me," he said. He, however, added that it was highly improper of anyone to ask for another investigation.
