Ghaziabad:Team Anna members should refrain from "levelling charges" against each other and not let anything fracture their unity, yoga guru Ramdev said on Sunday.
"They should not indulge in levelling charges against each other and they must keep away from any controversial act because the government has one motto -- to defame all those who speak against it," Ramdev said here.

His statement comes against the backdrop of growing clamour for revamp in the Team Anna's core committee after key member Kumar Vishwas shot off a letter to Hazare demanding its suspension.

The core committee met without Hazare yesterday following a series of allegations against key members Arvind Kejriwal and Kiran Bedi as well as the resignations of two prominent activists Rajinder Singh and P V Rajagopal citing the political turn taken by Hazare's anti-corruption movement.

Team Anna today announced that it will formulate a Constitution for its anti-corruption movement and revamp the core committee after that.

Ramdev also made an appeal to the public to continue fighting against corruption and blackmoney.

"Blackmoney of Indians deposited in banks in Switzerland, Singapore and other countries has been siphoned off to different banks in Britain and America for fear that their names will be unearthed," he alleged.

In Noida for a two-day Yoga seminar, he demanded that politicians, including mayors, MLAs, MPs, heads of political parties and former and present ministers, bureaucrats, and corporates declare their properties and assets.

"The government must adopt a procedure to bring back the blackmoney stashed abroad and for it the government must use the anti-corruption and money laundering acts," he said.

On a question about property owned by him, Ramdev said that he has not a "single paisa in his own name."

The government must act to curb corruption and blackmoney rather than create "troubles" for those who raise the voice against black money and corruption, he said.

"I have full faith in Indian judiciary and justice will be done with Balakrishna," he said on a question about his close aide.
