New Delhi: Social activist and Team Anna member, Arvind Kejriwal, in a fit of rage walked out of Anna Hazare and Baba Ramdev’s joint fast following a rift with the septuagenarian crusader’s fight against graft.

Kejriwal had named individual MPs, who are allegedly involved in corruption cases, inspite of Anna’s request not to name any individual parliamentarians who are supposed to be corrupt.

Virtually snubbing Arvind Kejriwal, yoga guru Ramdev disapproved of the Team Anna member's comments against Prime Minister Manmohan Singh and other politicians during his fast along with Anna Hazare saying he was against personal criticism.
Soon after Kejriwal, who was on fast along with Anna Hazare and the yoga guru, finished his speech, Ramdev took the microphone and said "today, we thought that we will not take any body's name. But Arvind took the names".
"We don't want any controversies. Arvind does not have any enmity with anyone. The names have been taken in some context. We are against personal criticism", he said.
During his speech, Kejriwal attacked Singh and his Cabinet colleagues whom Team Anna had accused of indulging in corruption and mentioned the names of Mulayam Singh Yadav, Lalu Prasad Yadav, Jayalalithaa and Mayawati.
