New Delhi : Anna Hazare Monday said he will restructure his core committee, giving representation to all sections of society.

The anti-corruption activist also slammed the government for trying to divide the team. Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh, meanwhile, attacked Hazare, saying he was overestimating the Jan Lokpal bill.

“We will take all sections in the core committee… Dalits, Muslims, Adivasis and all others. Nobody should complain that they were not given a chance,” Hazare said in his village.

The restructuring comes after there were personal attacks on some key members, including Arvind Kejriwal, Kiran Bedi and Prashant Bhushan.

“Even youth will be represented. Youth’s power in the committee is extremely necessary. Youths from different communities will be picked up for the committee,” Hazare added.

He also hit out at the United Progressive Alliance government, blaming them for trying to sabotage the movement.

“Do any enquiry on Anna and his team, we have nothing to be afraid. These people are about to lose power and they will lose their job, how will they like it… they will try to divide us,” he said.

Digvijay Singh continued his attack on Hazare.

“I think he is overestimating the Jan Lokpal bill. Corruption can only be removed if there is a comprehensive strategy by the judiciary, bureaucracy, police and government,” the Congress leader told reporters in Delhi.

“Just passing the law will not help any one. Corruption will not be removed only by Lokpal,” he said.
