Man hurls shoe at Team Anna in Doon, arrested

Dehradun, January 21
A man has been arrested for hurling a shoe at Team Anna during its maiden meeting here today. The shoe, however, did not reach the podium. The man has been identified as Kisan Lal, a tea shop owner at Premnagar.
Meanwhile, flaying the incident, Congress spokesperson Surendra Kumar said although the party never supported such acts, now Team Anna should also understand that its reputation was on a downslide.
He also questioned Team Anna’s silence over the BJP’s “involvement” in corruption cases in Uttarakhand.
Addressing a gathering, Team Anna members ---Arvind Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi, Manish Sisodia, Kumar Vishwas and Sanjay Singh --- asked the people of the state to seek an explanation from political parties as to why the Lokpal had not been approved by Parliament.
They also urged the people to stand against corruption. However, at the same time, they maintained that the Uttarakhand’s Lokayukta Act was the best in the country and quite close to Anna’s Lokpal Bill.
Trying to maintain a distance from both the BJP and the Congress in poll-bound Uttarakhand, Kumar Vishwas categorically said their struggle was against corruption and not against any political party.
