Phoned Anna several times, but could not talk: Bedi

Written by | January 19, 2015 | 0

New Delhi: Kiran Bedi, who recently joined Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Sunday said she had tried several times to talk to Anna Hazare over the phone but was not able to do so as the anti- corruption crusader was either “sleeping or taking rest”.

Bedi, a former IPS officer and member of Hazare’s core team when he was leading his anti-corruption campaign, was reacting to reports that the latter was unhappy over her failure to inform him about her move to join BJP.

Bedi said she would call him again on Monday.

“I called Anna-ji on the telephone; sometimes he was sleeping and sometimes he was taking rest. I tried calling Anna-ji yesterday and will again call him tomorrow,” Bedi told the media when asked about the reports that Hazare was unhappy with her.

Bedi said she knows what Hazare would say to her and added that he would “smile”.
