Team Anna behaving like Naxalites: Swamy

Press Trust of India  |  Nagpur 

Janata Party President Subramanian Swamy today alleged that was behaving like "Naxalites" as they were "not keen on solutions" and instead bent on dragging the issue of corruption.

"Though Anna Hazare is spreading the anti-corruption movement and wants a strong to tackle the menace, his team members are  behaving like Naxalites," Swamy told newsmen, here today.

"was not keen on solutions but dragging the issue and was more interested in defaming the system," he said.

He also targeted Kiran Bedi, without naming her, and said, "some Magsaysay award winners...Are not the only intellectuals in the country to teach the rest."

On the ongoing spectrum issue, Swamy said he decided to move the -- challenging the trial court order which held that Home Minister P Chidmbaram did not indulge in any criminal conspiracy in the 2G case and refused to make him an accused in it -- and was hopeful of getting justice.

He said that earlier also he received several setbacks in lower courts but higher courts have given him justice.

Also, Swamy said that his next mission was to expose alleged irregularities and huge corruption in Air India.

On UPA government, he said after Presidential elections this year, it will collapse and mid-term elections are imminent.

To a question, he ruled out the possibility of formation of a Third Front and said, apparently referring to TMC, "You see how political parties are behaving. They are the possible constituents."
