New Delhi: 74-year-old social activist Anna Hazare on Sunday has extended an invitation to Army Chief General VK Singh to join anti-corruption movement after retirement.

Team Anna member Suresh Pathare quoted Anna on his twitter page. "We will welcome Gen VK Singh, if he wants to involve in this national movement after retirement,” Anna said.

Hazare's response came to a question yesterday while he was touring Maharashtra. "Anna's invite to General VK is most appropriate. Imagine if ex-servicemen join Anna they can become a formidable voice against corruption," Team Anna member Kiran Bedi tweeted on Sunday.
This is the first time Team Anna is extending a direct invitation to Singh to join his movement.
Last month, Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal while extending support to Singh had said that the Army Chief they were sure that he will take a decision on what he will do after retirement on May 31.
