Kejriwal’s party would be different path for same goal: Hazare

PUNE: Affirming his views on not forming a political party, social activist Anna Hazare today said floating a political outfit by his associate Arvind Kejriwal would mean “taking a different path” to reach the same goal of corruption free India.

“I have decided for myself not to form a political party or fight elections. But if Arvind floats one, it would mean taking a different path with the same goal of corruption free India,” Hazare told reporters here, when asked if creation of a political party by Kejriwal would mean a split between him and his mentor.

Hazare, who was here to meet some activists to discuss the course of his movement, said if Kejriwal’s party fielded candidates of “clean character”, he would support them in elections.

“If Arvind’s party fields a proper candidate, we will support that particular person and not all of them,” he added.

The anti-graft crusader said he was going to hold a series of meetings with like-minded people as even if he did not enter electoral politics, there was a need to determine the direction of his movement and send good people to Parliament.

Hazare said he would undertake a nation-wide tour to seek direction to his movement by interacting with experienced social activists.

“The exercise has started with the Pune meeting and it will continue in Delhi where I am expecting 100-125 activists for discussion,” he added.

Those who met Hazare in the city included RTI activist Vishwambhar Choudhary and social worker and former bureaucrat Avinash Dharmadhikar. -PTI
