Anna Hazare plans to convene a
meeting of like-minded people by this month-end to put
together a team and draw up a road-map for anti-graft crusade,
former Karnataka Lokayukta Santosh Hegde said here today.
Hegde, part of erstwhile Team Anna which was disbanded by the social activist recently, said Hazare told him about the plan when he met him during his week-long stay here for naturopathy treatment.
"He (Hazare) is going to call a meeting of all like-minded people by the end of this month and he will work out a strategy based on views expressed there (the meeting)," Hegde, a former Supreme Court judge, told PTI here today. "It will draw up a road-map for the future," he added.
"I think he will include more people (compared to erstwhile Team Anna)," he said.
Asked if members of the erstwhile team would be part of the new one, Hegde said: "Must be, why would he (Hazare) exclude (them). That's what he told me," and added: "the new team may have different outlook."
On whether the new team's movement would be apolitical, he said, "That will be decided (at the meeting). That's an issue that's already there with people having different opinions about that."
