I don’t benefit, my NGO does: Kiran Bedi

ET Bureau Oct 21, 2011, 02.08am IST
NEW DELHI: Team Anna member Kiran Bedi — who has been accused of claiming full business class airfares from companies and institutions hosting her while travelling at 75% discount in economy class courtesy her gallantry award — has said she did not personally benefit from the measure and the money went to her NGO.
"Business class travel is part of the invitation/entitlement from the event organisers/corporates I'm asked to speak at,'' she told a news conference in the Capital on Thursday, after a newspaper reported in detail about her practice. "Travelling economy is a choice despite entitlement only to ensure that savings remain with the NGO. No personal gain here.'' Kiran Bedi claimed that she took these steps with the concurrence of her hosts. "I downgrade myself sometimes,'' she said, adding that her hosts tell her that how she chooses to spend the fare they assign to her ticket should be her personal decision.

Kiran Bedi maintained the savings accruing from the practice were deposited in the NGO she heads, India Vision Foundation. "Sorry to disappoint detractors trying real hard to find a smoking gun. However I accept this kind of coverage as a part of the challenges which being in public life poses,'' Bedi said.
Congress, which has been attacked by Team Anna, used the allegations to take a dig at Bedi. AICC General Secretary Digvijaya Singh said the charges were serious and merited probe. Law Minister Salman Khurshid, however, said, "I don't find myself equipped or able to pronounce judgement on anybody like the way judgement has been passed on many of us by the movement in which Kiran Bedi has a role. I don't think we should condemn anyone unheard," he said.Bedi said she had explained her stand to Anna Hazare, who is on a maun vrat. She said she had also spoken to another key member of Team Anna, Arvind Kejriwal, about the controversy.

इस जीत में मीडिया का बहुत बड़ा योगदान है: अन्ना

नई दिल्ली। अन्ना हजारे ने अनशन तोड़ने के बाद मीडिया को धन्यवाद दिया और कहा कि इस जीत में मीडिया का अहम योगदान है। मीडिया को लोकतंत्र का चौथा स्तंभ कहा जाता है और मीडिया ने इस आंदोलन को पूरी दुनिया में प्रसारित कर सिद्ध कर दिया। उन्होंने कहा कि लोकतंत्र का एक स्तंभ भी मजबूत हो तो देश में परिवर्तन लाया जा सकता है और परिवर्तन ऐसे ही आता है।
जंतर मंतर पर जीत की खुशी से सराबोर अन्ना ने कहा कि आजादी की दूसरी लड़ाई की ये शुरुआत है। इस आंदोलन से मुझे बहुत बड़ी शक्ति मिली है। उस शक्ति के आधार पर मैं देश में एक संगठन गठित करूंगा। जिसमें चारित्रिक लोगों का स्वागत होगा।

एडीटर्स गिल्ड की तरफ से तीन सवर्ण पत्रकार टी एन नैनन, कूमी कपूर और सुरेश बाफना आज लोकपाल बिल पर विचार करने वाली संसदीय समिति के सामने पेश हुए और कहां कि हमें लोकपाल के दायरे में नहीं आना है। हम जिसकी चाहे उसकी दुम उठाएंगे, और कोई हमारी दुम उठाए तो खबरदार!
Keep media out of lokpal purview, says Editors Guild
HT Correspondent, Hindustan Times
New Delhi, October 22, 2011

The Editors Guild of India on Friday favoured keeping the media out of the purview of the proposed anti-corruption watchdog, the Lokpal. A three-member team of the apex body of editors, which appeared before the parliamentary panel examining the Lokpal bill, stated that media in the
country was broadly a "private body" and could not be covered by the anti-corruption watchdog.   The Guild was represented by its president TN Ninan, general secretary Coomi Kapoor and treasurer Suresh Bafna in the meeting with the parliamentary standing committee on law and justice.
Many MPs cutting across party lines, including those in the committee, have been demanding bringing the media and NGOs under the ambit of the proposed Lokpal.
In the meeting, some members are understood to have told the Guild representatives that there is no demand to bring the "news content" under the Lokpal, but only the "business content", since media houses also buy assets likes land for their infrastructure.
Committee chairman Abhishek Singhvi is learnt to have stated that the Guild members put across their views "clearly and proactively."
As many as 21 other organisations and individuals were also invited to appear before the committee on Friday, to state their views on the Lokpal issue.
