Why is Anna Hazare dabbling in politics?

Anna Hazare went very cheap while issuing media statements, he seriously needs to rest for a long time. He is endorsing Mamata Banerjee and snubbing Arvind Kejriwal which is bizarre and humorous. Does he want to say that Banerjee is honest and Kejriwal is not? Nevertheless, if any survey is conducted, Kejriwal will get higher admiration rating than Anna and that’s why Anna is afraid to campaign for AAP.

Old man never realised that Arvind can make it to power, since the inception of Aam Aadmi party. Hazare went on attacking Kejriwal without any concrete base or proofs. I thought, Hazare would show some maturity by silently observing everything by not making irrelevant attacks but he acted like a nut. Anna has been exposed completely. If he has decided to part away with Kejriwal, on various issues, why is he jumping into another bandwagon? If he was against politics and formation of political party then he should keep himself away from politics.

Ego did not leave even simple ‘so called’ social worker. Anna Hazare and Kiran Bedi both are envious of Kejriwal’s success as a politician. They couldn’t digest someone who was around them in graft struggle, rose above all expectations and formed a Government in an unprecedented fashion. Anna is nowhere close to any Gandhian except for his outfit and appearance, but more of an uncivilised person with his unnecessary personal outbursts on others. He should stop wasting his energy on Kejriwal, but rather focus on his original style of protest as an assumed Gandhian. That Hazare is supporting Banerjee is a big shock. Women have been raped and murdered in West Bengal; Mamata either calls that ‘an arrangement gone bad’ or blames CPM. The crime rate, murders, frauds in WB are on rise. Can’t he see that or no one is guiding him to make him aware about that?

Anna slammed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and said that after tendering his resignation, Kejriwal should have vacated the official bungalow, but he hasn’t done that. Why so much pain if Kejriwal is residing in Government bungalow? Let government act against him, this objection should come from Congress or BJP. Why Anna is interfering in Kejriwal’s matter? What is the problem if he is aiming to be PM of this country?

What about Mamata Banerjee? Is she not willing to be PM of this country? She is ready to take support from Mulayam Singh Yadav, Jayalalithaa, Mayawati to become PM. She can even be a part of third front, for her own political benefits. Hazare always need a person for his piggyback. First, Arvind Kejriwal then Kiran Bedi and VK Singh and now Mamata. Please develop backbone for yourself. Every person have their own path. He wants that person should forget his own path and follow him all his life. Anna’s anger against Mr. Kejriwal is beyond understanding. Kejriwal may have different approach on Jan Lokpal and he did not hide it either. Anna wanted a non-political movement to achieve the Jan Lokpal. On the contrary, Kejriwal took the battle to the corrupt politicians’ camp and succeeded handsomely. I feel this might have hurt Anna and his company. Suddenly, they started raising their voice against AAP. In their bid to undercut AAP’s success, Anna forgot his basic principle of non political movement and started hobnobbing with political parties. First, he praised Congress then BJP and now he is praising TMC chief Mamata Banerjee.

Arvind Kejriwal may have some shortcomings but his mission is worth praising and supporting. Why Anna desperately want Kejriwal to be out of politics? It is his decision. If Anna’s decision is to stay out of politics, Kejriwal’s decision is to stay in politics and make some changes. Don’t know why it is bothering him so much. It might be because Anna lost public appeal once Arvind Kejriwal created his party. Now, he is searching for someone who can support him blindly. Anna doesn’t know what he is doing. He wants publicity for himself. He doesn’t care for common people. His drama has been fully exposed. Kejriwal and Anna, who together launched the anti-corruption movement, parted ways after the former launched a political outfit. Hazare also said that he won’t support Bharatiya Janata Party’s prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi or Kejriwal. Who needs Hazare, the lost identity for their political campaign? Why he is voluntarily passing statements? I don’t think Modi ever needs this man for political campaigns.

Moreover, if Hazare feels that there is no other leader like Mamata Banerjee, she should be PM, then she should also seek out answers for why did the TMC stall the Lok Pal bill in the Rajya Sabha last year when it was already passed in the Lok Sabha. Why did she call the Park Street rape victim a slut? Why does she oppose the river water sharing agreement with Bangladesh when it will bring prosperity to both countries? Why she refused various development projects? Why there is so much crime and law and order problems in WB?
