Anna Hazare threatens stir against Arvind Kejriwal

Social activist and crusader Anna Hazare on Wednesday said, that he would start an agitation against his one-time most trusted colleague, Delhi chief minister Arvind Kejriwal if he finds any traces of wrong doings during his tenure.
Interacting with the media at his native village Ralegan Siddhi, Hazare said he did not have doubts about Kejriwal’s character. “But his reputation has been damaged because of the people he took in his party to win power. If he wishes to win over the confidence of people again, he should give up power and serve the nation again,” he said.

“Kejriwal’s Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) is going to contest the Punjab elections but the voters will take into consideration the current turn of events while making the decision about whom to give their votes to,” Hazare said, adding that it was unfortunate that reports had surfaced about women being exploited in exchange for tickets in Punjab and now there wasn’t any difference between AAP and any “other political party.”

“Had Kejriwal selected people of good character in his party, he would not have faced this problem,” he said,”I had hoped that something good will happen because Kejriwal has a good character.”
