Latching on to Anna Hazare’s remarks on Arvind Kejriwal-led AAP, Delhi BJP on Tuesday wrote to the anti-graft activist, requesting him to come to Delhi and speak from the Jantar Mantar on the “unhealthy politics” of the Aam Aadmi Party.

Hazare earlier had said that he was “very saddened to see” that some of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s colleagues have gone to jail, while some others are “indulging in fraud”.

“Delhi by and large never saw major misconduct by local politicians except in CWG build up but once in power, Delhi saw unprecedented scams in Jal Board, Transport, Food and Supplies and Revenue Departments…,” Delhi BJP chief Satish Upadhyay alleged in the letter.

He said, he saw Hazare’s first reaction on what is going on in Delhi, but, “this is not enough”.

“Jan Andolan run on public sentiments and Kejriwal has let them down. You are a pioneer of Jan Andolans…

“I therefore request you to please rise for the nation and come to Delhi and speak from the Jantar Mantar on what you feel about the unhealthy politics of Aam Aadmi Party and guide the nation like you did to fight corruption under past regimes,” Upadhyay wrote in it.

Meanwhile, AAP on Tuesday said Hazare’s concerns are “genuine” and it reflects affection for the outfit.
