Team Anna to Send Notices to 14 Union Ministers
Team Anna today decided to send notices to 14 Union Ministers, whom they had named as "corrupt", seeking their responses to the allegations before going ahead with agitation seeking legal action against them.

This was decided at a meeting of Team Anna's Core Committee, attended by Anna Hazare and other prominent members.

"We have decided to send notices to 14 Union Ministers facing serious allegations and whom we have named during our March 25 agitation. We will wait for their responses and after a week we will call a press meet to put in public domain the evidences against them," lawyer Prashant Bhushan said.

He also said Hazare's national tour will begin next month from Maharashtra.

It was also decided that Core Committee members will lead protests in their own states for an effective Lokayukta, he said.

Activist Kiran Bedi said they expect the government to pass a strong Lokpal Bill when Parliament resumes its business after the recess next week.

This is more significant than dharna and Fast,With so many Legal Brains in the Team this was long pending.

Given Bhushan"s record in 2G expose in the Supreme Court,this will send the 14 to spin.

This action by Civil society should get legal sanctity from the Courts,if that happens no obviously Corrupt Neta will escape the Long arm of Law.

We have so many like BSY,Kamat,Vilas rao,Rane and Bhujbal who have abused office for gain.Wonder when these guys will face Team Anna.
