By on November 20, 2013

Social activist Anna Hazare claimed that there was a conspiracy to defame both him and Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal, after a video emerged showing the Anna Hazare criticizing the Arvind Kejriwal.

Arvind Kejriwal said that “Yes, I am deeply hurt. I am very sad to see the video. Since these allegations have been made by Anna Hazare, who I regard as my mentor, I want an open probe into this case.?

“We are ready for any probe, I have already said that I will not fight elections if found guilty,” he added.

Anna further said that some people showed him posters with his photo being used for AAP.


“We told Anna that the posters were not real,” said Kejriwal.

“It means fake posters were printed. There is a conspiracy to mislead Anna against us,” he said.

He also said Aam Admi Party (AAP) was not using Anna Hazare’s name in its party’s election campaigning.

“When I say Anna Hazare fasted for Janlokpal, it is a historical fact. People don’t understand Janlokpal, so I say Anna’s Lokpal bill. I always say it is not Anna’s party. Still if he (Anna Hazare) has objections, I will not use the term Anna’s Lokpal,” he told reporters.

Arvind Kejriwal replied answers for the questions raised by Anna Hazare.

1. How can AAP promise to pass Janlokpal?

1. Its the same Lokayukta bill that Anna &  the then Uttarakhand CM held a joint press conference about. This is the same bill that Anna was campaigning for in Maharashtra. The same bill will be passed in Delhi.

2. Is AAP using Anna’s name in fund collection or campaigning?

2. Anna’s name has not been used in fund raising for AAP. The “Anna” card was used at the IAC time and now its discontinued. The funds remaining on the card were refunded to people.

3. What was the amount collected during Janlokpal movement and if that money is bng used by AAP?

3.  No IAC fund has been used by the Aam Aadmi Party.
