Hazare disbands Team Anna Members resent Decision taken without Consent

The team has been formally dissolved. "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 on Monday wrote on his blog.

However, reactions from key core committee members suggest the decision to dissolve Team Anna was not only taken without their consent but was also the opposite of what they'd been told in recent meetings. Some even say they were not even formally informed and only found out they were no longer working together through the media.

 Kiran Bedi, who regularly appeared alongside Hazare and Arvind Kejriwal during their most recent fast, said she was confused by Hazare's blog. "Read Anna's blog. Do not know what all it means," she tweeted, adding that she believed the movement was going to continue. "For we all had very useful preparatory meeting with Annaji wherein he gave useful guidance!"
Devinder Sharma, an agricultural activist and founding member of India Against Corruption said he found out about the decision from news channels. "This is not done. Even a small company formally thanks its board members," he tweeted angrily. 

Five core committee members voiced displeasure after Kerjiwal and Hazare said they would form a political party to carry on with their goals. Within hours of the announcement, civil activist Medha Patkar, former Karnataka Lokayukta Justice Santosh Hegde and Assamese activist Akhil Gogoi joined others in warning against the move, saying it could endanger all future civil society movements.For the moment, the new core committee announced by Hazare to explore the team's political options does not include any member who spoke out against recent decisions except Kiran Bedi.
