Kiran Bedi urges "credible" people from government to come for dialogue

New Delhi, July 30 (ANI): As Team Anna's indefinite hunger strike entered its sixth day, close confidante of Anna Hazare and former top cop, Kiran Bedi, on Monday called on the Central government to come forward for dialogue.

Interacting with reporters at Jantar Mantar here, Bedi asked for a trustworthy representative of the government to step up in order to end the discord.

"Dialogue with whom? We would love to have a dialogue but dialogue with which credible people? We have had a letter from the Prime Minister and it remains un-honoured, we have resolution of the parliament, which remains unimplemented, dialogue with whom? We want trustworthy faces to come, why don't they come and show us," Bedi said.

Hazare began his indefinite fast against corruption on Sunday by joining Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia and Gopal Rai - who have been fasting since July 25.

Team Anna has demanded the setting up of a Special Investigation Team (SIT) of retired judges of Supreme and High Courts, to probe charges of corruption against 15 cabinet ministers, including the Prime Minister.

They have also sought the transferring of cases against political party chiefs, which are being probed by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) to the SIT, in addition to setting up fast track courts to dispose of cases against lawmakers within six months. (ANI)
