Noida: Stepping ahead with the fight against corruption, Team Anna on Sunday decided to send notices to 14 Union Ministers to seek their response regarding charges of corruption against them before seeking legal action on the basis of the charges.

The decision was taken at a meeting of Team Anna’s Core Committee led by Anna Hazare and other members.

"We have decided to send notices to 14 Union Ministers facing serious allegations and whom we have named during our March 25 agitation. We will wait for their responses and after a week we will call a press meet to put in public domain the evidences against them," lawyer Prashant Bhushan said.

He also said Hazare's national tour will begin next month from Maharashtra.

It was also decided that Core Committee members will lead protests in their own states for an effective Lokayukta, he said.

Activist Kiran Bedi said they expect the government to pass a strong Lokpal Bill when Parliament resumes its business after the recess next week.
