Kiran Bedi mocks Digvijay Singh over 'tube light' remarks on Team Anna
New Delhi, Nov. 4 (ANI): Commenting on Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh's latest tweet where in he described the members of veteran social activist Anna Hazare's team as 'tube light', former Indian Police Service officer and civil society activist Kiran Bedi on Friday mockingly said that the former possesses a very good dictionary, and added that it would be inappropriate to pose a challenge to it.
"Digvijay Singh has such a good dictionary and he has studied from such a good state and schools and colleges, how can we pose a challenge to his dictionary," said Bedi.
Singh had recently on a popular social networking website termed Hazare and his aides as 'tube light', as they reportedly agreed to Rahul Gandhi's proposal for constitutional status for the Lokpal Bill, which they were formerly opposed to.
Lauding Anna Hazare for breaking his 19-day long vow of silence, Bedi said that the veteran social activist would be briefed on the new developments that had taken place after their previous meeting with the Indian Parliamentary panel, which is examining the proposed anti-graft Lokpal Bill.
"Anna will be updated and we will prepare for the day ahead because Anna is going to leave the team today for the parliamentary committee (meeting). I think today is going to be a lot of question answers, so we are looking forward to a discussion because yesterday we offered all the amendments, so that has given time to the members of the parliament of the standing committee to now come back with clarifications and questions. So I am glad Anna is with us to offer alongside the questions and answers," she said.
Hazare broke his 'vow of silence' after paying tributes to Father of the Nation Mahatma Gandhi at the Rajghat earlier in the day.
After breaking his vow of silence, Anna Hazare, the 74-year-old anti-corruption crusader, said his 'maun vrat' was against the corrupt system, and not against any particular party.
Bedi further said that it would be important to see if the Parliament's Bill overrides or supports the Uttarakhand Lokayukta Bill.
"Whether the bill that has been passed by the Uttarakhand government, will it support it or will it dilute it? I think, these are the new challenges in front of the Standing Committee and the Parliament," she said.
The much-awaited Lokayukta Bill, which was passed in the Uttarakhand Assembly on Tuesday, would now be sent to governor Margaret Alva for her assent and, after that, it will be implemented in the state within 180 days. (ANI)
