Ralegan Siddhi, Oct 30 (ANI): Civil society activists Arvind Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan and Kiran Bedi arrived here this morning to brief veteran social activist Anna Hazare on the deliberations of the core committee meeting.


Hazare, who is currently observing a vow of silence, could not attend the core committee meeting that was held in Uttar Pradesh's Ghaziabad city due to health problems.


"We will tell everything to Anna. We will work as Anna guides us to do. We have come here to take direction from him," said RTI crusader and Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal.


"We have come to share energy with Anna. We have come to take more blessings of Anna. We have come to tell Anna what happened yesterday (October 29)," added former IPS officer and another Hazare aide Kiran Bedi.


Amid a clamour for its revamp over allegations of financial mis-conduct by some key members, Team Anna on Saturday decided not to dissolve the core committee.


Kejriwal after the meeting said that there was no question of dissolving the core committee of Anna Hazare movement.


He, however, said that there was always scope for restructuring of the core committee.


Emphasising that the government is targeting it, Kejriwal said: "Core committee supports Team Anna's Hisar campaign but this does not mean we are against a party.


"The core committee appeals to the government to pass the Lokpal Bill in the winter session of Parliament. Otherwise we will follow a similar campaign - like we did in Hisar - in all five states going to the polls," he added


Team members Prashant Bhushan, Shanti Bhushan, Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Kiran Bedi were present at the meeting, while activist Medha Patkar and Santosh Hegde did not attend the meeting.


Earlier on Friday, Kumar Vishwas, one of the core committee members had highlighted the need to overhaul the core team fighting for the enactment of a tougher Lokpal Bill so as to prevent it from losing the masses' faith and support. (ANI)
