Anna Hazare has said he's "very saddened to see" that some of Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's coworkers have gone to jail, while some others are "indulging in fraud."
"I am very hurt... When he (Kejriwal) was with me, he composed a novel on gram swaraj... Will we call this gram swaraj? That is why I 'm really unhappy. His comments come against the backdrop of the arrest of AAP MLA Sandeep Kumar who is accused of having raped her by a woman,
36-year old Kumar, who was terminated as a minister by the Delhi authorities in the wake of the accusation, was today remanded to three-day police custody by a court. Hazare said he'd earlier told Kejriwal, "you're going to roam the world after launching your party. You may hold rallies in the country for the same, but how do you want to discover the people who join your party have a character that is good or not? "He (Kejriwal) didn't have an answer for that. Today it can be experienced by me. I'd said this earlier additionally, be it any party or leader; it is critical to check if the people that join a party have a clean character or not."
Hazare told a TV news channel, "Arvind has been with me for many years. I was hopeful for Arvind. I was expecting that he can place an alternate model for politics in India and also that he will give a different direction to the state." He said, "I felt that way, but I 'm very saddened to see what his co-workers are doing.
