Ralegan Siddhi, October 30, 2011 (PTI)

A day after Team Anna ruled out disbanding its core committee, key members Kiran Bedi, Prashant Bhushan and Arvind Kejriwal reached Anna Hazare's village in Maharashtra and are expected to apprise him about the deliberations.

The team members reached here this morning and are expected to brief Hazare about the discussions held at the meeting held at Ghaziabad in Uttar Pradesh yesterday.

The anti-graft activist is on a vow of silence since October 16 and had stayed away from yesterday's meeting.

The Core Committee of Team Anna has ruled out disbanding itself, saying it will not be cowed down by government's "attempts to target its members".

This is going to be the first meeting the trio will be having with Mr. Hazare after they were enmeshed in allegations.

Mr. Kejriwal was accused of depositing donations for the Lokpal agitation in a trust run by him which does not have have members of Team Anna while Ms. Bedi faced attack for allegedly overcharging her hosts by inflating travel bills.

Mr. Bhushan was attacked by right-wing activists for advocating plebiscite in Kashmir. Mr. Hazare came out in public to denounce Mr. Bhushan's view while he had supported Ms. Bedi and Mr. Kejriwal, saying a "gang of four" in the ruling Congress had been behind the allegations.
