Anna Hazare’s comments are showing distance from Arvind Kejriwal-led group’s political foray; Anna Hazare on Sunday said politics will not deliver a better future for people and asked those planning to join his anti-corruption movement to contact him in Ralegan Siddhi.
The remarks were significant as Hazare publicised the address of Brashtachar Virodhi Jan Andolan in Ralegan Siddhi as his contact point for those who want to associate with his movement.
“The ruling party and some others say that FDI will change the economic situation in the country while opposition says it is harmful for the country. Both the sides are trying to cut each other keeping 2014 elections in mind.
“Many regional parties have eight to 20-25 MPs in Parliament and they are pressurising the government for packages. What will these kinds of people do for the betterment of society?” he said.
This is the second time in the past three days that Hazare has commented on the issue anti-corruption movement taking a political turn, the first being a video shot by those opposed to the political course taken by a section of the erstwhile Team Anna and the latest his blog post.
In the blog, Hazare said the ruling and opposition parties are not serious about curbing corruption and the recent disclosures about donations in which they have used a clause to hide the names of donors from public showed their intentions.
Hazare claimed, “He does not believe that politics will get a better future for the country”, he said always to focus on ensuring that good people enter Parliament by making their character favorable for the government to make a healthy Parliament.
