Hazare blames "gang of four" for allegations against Team Anna

Social activist Anna Hazare today defended former Indian Police Service (IPS) officer Kiran Bedi, a key member of his team that is campaigning for an anti-corruption Lokpal in the country, against allegations of "air travel corruption" and blamed a "gang of four" in the ruling establishment for this kind of "character assassination".

"Who are these people? Those are the very same people who are not in favor of Janlokpal Bill," the 74-year-old Gandhian wrote in his blog.

He noted that Ms Bedi, who has been accused of inflating air travel bills submitted to organisations which invite her for lectures and other events, had made it clear that the Government could conduct an inquiry by one of its agencies to establish whether she had used the money for her own benefit.
