Anti Corruption Crusaders Gettting Threats: Team Anna

Ralegan-Siddhi: A few days after the Supreme Court lawyer and key member of Team Anna was attacked, Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal on Saturday said that the anti-corruption crusaders were now getting threats through calls and SMSes.

“Since Friday we have been getting these calls and messages from some unknown people who threaten to attack us and our office,” Arvind Kejriwal told the media.

“We believe that violence is not the solution. However, if some people feel that by attacking us they can solve the problems of corruption in the country, we shall offer ourselves to be beaten up by them,” Kejriwal said.

“I have discussed this issue with other Team Anna members and they have decided not to “retaliate” if such attacks happen,” he said adding that volunteers have been deployed outside various Team Anna office locations.
