As a step towards the formation of a political party, Team Anna disbanded itself and decided not to have any more talks with the government on Lokpal issue.
The dissolution of Anna Hazare’s team came three days after it ended its indefinite fast at Jantar Mantar here with plans for formation of a political alternative to fight the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
The announcement was made by Hazare in his blog but he did not clearly specify whether they were going to immediately announce formation of a party though he talked about the procedures for setting up the political alternative.
“The government is not ready to enact Jan Lokpal Bill. How long and how many times we will go on fast? Now people have asked us to leave fast and give an alternative. I also thought that the government is not going to curb corruption.”
“We are now stopping the activities of Team Anna today. Team Anna was formed to fight for Jan Lokpal. We have also decided not to have any more talks with the government. From today, there will be no Team Anna or Team Anna Core Committee,” Hazare said.
