Probe Pranab first, Team Anna demands

Team Anna targeted Congress presidential candidate Pranab Mukherjee and demanded an independent inquiry into the allegations they had made against him. The government had trashed the charges against him and 14 other ministers made by Team Anna last month.

Arvind Kejriwal told reporters that Mukherjee was a candidate for the highest constitutional post and the person adorning the top office must be 'above board'. Another member Manish Sisodia also wanted the allegations to be investigated.

Team Anna had made allegations against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Mukherjee and 13 others last month and demanded setting up of a special investigation team, which was rejected by the government.

The prime minister had earlier strongly rebutted Team Anna's allegations and offered to quit public life and face any punishment if charges on coal block allotments made by the activists were proved.
