Ralegan Siddhi, Mar 28 (ANI): As parliamentarians across the political spectrum slammed Team Anna for using derogatory remarks against Members of Parliament, veteran social activist Ann Hazare on Wednesday said only 'pure people' have a right to sit in Parliament.
"Parliament is temple of democracy. Only pure people have a right to sit in Parliament," Hazare told media here.
"We do not speak against any political party or person. We are just fighting for the nation. The central government has been cheating us with false promises. They do not have clear intentions in bringing Lokpal Bill," he added.
On Arvind Kejriwal's charges against union ministers, Hazare said: "He (Arvind Kejriwal) has all the proof. The speaker should elect a committee and the allegations should be investigated. We are ready to face punishment if found guilty."
Kejriwal had on Sunday released a list of 14 ministers who, he claimed would be facing investigation under charges of corruption if a strong ombudsman bill is passed.e took the names of around 25 politicians, including ministers Sharad Pawar, S.M. Krishna, P.Chidambaram, Praful Patel, Kapil Sibal, Kamal Nath, Farooq Abdullah, Ajit Singh, Sri Prakash Jaiswal, Sushil Kumar Shinde, Vilasrao Deshmukh, M.K. Azhagiri and G.K. Vasan.
"If the Lokpal Bill comes into force, FIRs will be lodged against 14 ministers of the Union Government," he said.
"Who will punish people like them? Delhi Police or the CBI? No one knows because these people will never pass Lokpal Bill," Kejriwal said. (ANI)
