Team Anna member Arvind Kejriwal has said that Anna Hazare is above Parliament and he has the right to do so as a citizen. “Of course,he is putting himself above (Parliament). Every citizen is above Parliament. Let me caution you,every citizen is above Parliament. The citizen has every right to tell Parliament has not done the job. Citizens are more important than Parliament. It is in the Constitution. Anna Hazare and every citizen is supreme. I think the Constitution says so,” Kejriwal told Karan Thapar in Devil’s Advocate programme on CNN-IBN. He was responding to questions on how one can justify threats of fast to get a Bill passed in Parliament and whether Hazare was putting himself above Parliament. Kejriwal justified the decision to campaign against the Congress in the Hisar by-election,saying it was the ruling party’s duty to ensure the passage of the Jan Lokpal Bill. He said Hazare meant the whole UPA when he said he would campaign against the Congress.
