Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare on Monday congratulated his former protege Arvind Kejriwal after his AAP announced it would form government in Delhi and that Kejriwal would be the chief minister.

“He has formed the government but now he should also run the government well. He should make sure that the performance of the Delhi government is much better than all other state governments,” the social activist told reporters in his Ralegan Siddhi village.

On Kejriwal’s promise that his government will pass the “Lokpal Bill” within a week of government formation,Anna said the Bill had already been passed.

“The Bill has been passed by the Central government recently. I don’t understand what he (Kejriwal) means when he says he will pass the Lokpal Bill in Delhi. Let him act first,then only I will comment,” Anna said,adding,“I have wished him all the best already. I won’t comment any further on the issue.”
