Derek O'Brein confirms Anna Hazare wrote to Mamata Banerjee
Trinamool Congress MP Derk O'Brien has confirmed that anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare has written a letter to TMC chief Mamata Banerjee in December last year giving his opinion on a number of topics of national importance.

Reportedly in response to the letter, the Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee has told  Anna Hazare that she agreed with him on a number of issues like FDI in retail and land acquisition.

Sources in the party said some of the suggestions given by Hazare have been incorporated by the TMC in its election manifesto.

TMC's official twitter handle has also confirmed that Anna Hazare wrote to Mamata Banerjee.

Anna's suggestions include ensuring a Lokayukta, putting up of citizens’ charter to address people’s problems, and to bring all state government employees under the purview of Lokpal. 

The confusion over the Hazare's letter surfaced after some senior Trinamool Congress leaders like Subrata Mukherjee, Saugata Roy and national president of TMCP, Shankudeb Ponda  said that they had no information about any letter written by Anna Hazare to TMC president Mamta.

When Derek O'Brien was asked his response on this, he simply said that it was not necessary that every party MP has knowledge of everything.

“Not every MP will know about every thing happening in the party,” said TMC Brian.
