Social activist Anna Hazare on Tuesday said he hoped no Arvind Kejriwal emerged from his movement again. “I hope no Kejriwal comes out of my movement again,” he told reporters in Agra after addressing a public meeting. Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal had taken part in Hazare’s anti-corruption movement in 2011. Subsequently, he parted ways with the social activist and launched his own political outfit Aam Aadmi Party.

Speaking at the public meeting at the Shahid Smarak in Agra, Hazare said a big rally would be organised at the national capital on March 23 and urged the farmers to join it in huge numbers. He accused the UPA government at the Centre of failing to act on the Jan Lokpal Bill.

“The (Narendra) Modi government later diluted the provisions of the Jan Lokpal Bill. Both the Congress and the BJP are guilty (in this regard),” the 80-year-old social activist said.

Lamenting that even after 70 years of achieving independence, democracy, in its true sense, was yet to come to India, Hazare said, “We do not want a government of capitalists. No Modi, no Rahul (Gandhi). We want a government which works for farmers’ interests.”

    I am surprising every time you say against Arvind Kejriwal. Where as Arvind Kejriwal had never say a ward against you. He always respect you. The Kejriwal Govt in delhi is doing so much good works for lower class people. You never say against the real traitors like Kiran Bedi .V.k.Singh who joined BJP the rising party. We are loosing faith on you.

      don't worry annaji, only peoples like Santosh bharti, kiran bedi and V.P. Singh will emerge under your next flagship movements and you will still be OK. Everything goes fair at accusing and bashing kejriwal for all silly mistakes and b ers you have done after splitting with kejriwal and others.The thing peoples now know is that you are not and cannot be the hope for poeples because you lack leadership material and reliability. But still good wishes for your future movements if they do any good for the peoples of this country.
