Anna Hazare’s Call Off Fast(latest), Media Attack-Start the Music.
of his/’Kejriwal’s followers were involved in a scuffle with the Media on Monday.
In fact while we were driving yesterday.I was telling my son that Anna Hazare will find a novel reason to quit the fast.
A false Messiah,that too self-appointed,can only breed anarchy.
If he were sincere he should resolve that unless his followers behave properly he shall continue his fast unto death and not an excuse to end it.
Look at the bad blood between Anna and Kejriwal and where is the joker in the pack, Kiran Bedi?
Good that the Media has realised that he no longer gets them TRP and stopped ‘telecast Live’ his antics.
New Delhi, Jul 31: Anna Hazare was upset over the scuffle between his supporters and media personnel at Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on Monday, Jul 30. The Gandhian was so upset with his team and other supporters that he threatened to end the protest.
However, a crucial Team Anna member, Arvind Kejriwal, who has been continuing his fast protest for the last six days, on Tuesday, Jul 31 apologised to media for “misbehaviour” of their supporters.
Despite Kejriwal’s apology, it seems that the anti-graft crusader was not convinced and announcedthat he will call off the protest if his supporters and aides continue to misbehave with the media. The septuagenarian also urged his team and supporters to desist from any confrontation with mediapersons.
The incident took place around 10 pm, when Hazare supporters entered into an argument with the mediapersons. A team Anna member’s allegation that the media was not projecting the protest in the right light led to the scuffle.
Key Team Anna member Kumar Vishwas condemned the incident and said the scuffle should not have taken place. Meanwhile, the Broadcast Editors’ Association (BEA) has condemned the incident and demanded an apology from Team Anna.
Following the scuffle, BEA on Tuesday issued a press release where it claimed, “The Broadcast Editors’ Association strongly condemns attack on media by Anna supporters. The BEA believes that this is an interference in the functioning of media. The media is discharging its legitimate duty of covering the agitation in a fair manner. The BEA seeks an immediate apology from Team Anna for the misbehaviour by its supporters.”
Along with Kejriwal, the Gandhian crusader also started his fast and continued his protest for the third day on Tuesday. This time the team demanded an independent probe by Special Investigation Team (SIT) against 14 Union Cabinet ministers including Manmohan Singh. Team Anna, however, spared Pranab Mukherjee as he is protected by immunity from facing legal action after becoming the President of India.

Anna Hazare’s fight against Corruption,though well-intentioned, is not Right, the way he goes about it.
Any one who muster crowd and media support can resort to this to defy or enact a Law in their interests.
