Anna Hazare to meet supporters in Delhi

     For the first time after his split with Arvind Kejriwal, veteran social activist Anna Hazare will meet his supporters and activists to chalk out the future course of action. Hazare's meeting comes against the backdrop of his blog posting in which he put the blame for separation squarely on Kejriwal-led pro-party group. "They have called me, once I will go I will get to know who all will meet me," Hazare told media here. Hazare, who was the face of the India Against Corruption (IAC) campaign, had earlier said he would not be a part of the political arm of the movement, spearheaded by Kejriwal. "I will not join any party or any group. I will not go for their campaign. I have told them not to use my photo or my name in their campaign. You fight on your own," he said. Hazare refused to accept the survey done by India Against Corruption which overwhelmingly favoured a political path, saying he does not agree with the exercise done through social networking sites. "My best wishes are with them (those taking political path). There is no harm in it. If they think that they can get majority in Parliament, it is good...The paths have been separated. Both of us have chosen our separate paths," he said Kejriwal, Prashant Bhushan, Manish Sisodia and others want to form a political party and contest elections to usher in fundamental changes in the country's democratic structure. Hazare had staged a hunger strike against corruption that roused public ire against the government. Thousands took to the streets at his call, demanding for an anti-graft Lokpal (ombudsman) to tackle rampant graft.
