After my report, Anna may withdraw statement on Modi: Agnivesh

Anna Hazare
Ahmedabad, April 18: Social activist Swami Agnivesh said that Anna Hazare would likely withdraw his statement praising Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi, once information collected from the state is submitted to him.

"On Hazare's statement (about Modi) -- me and other activists feel that he did not have a clear view about Gujarat and his information was based on media reports," Agnivesh who was here for a function told reporters.

He further said he had come to collect information and to convince all the activists of the country that Hazare's statement was not because of some inclination, but was based on information that Hazare had.

"Harare had told reporters yesterday that if he gets full information, he would accept it as truth and based on that he could even withdraw his statement praising Modi," Agnivesh said.

"Today, I have collected information which I will share with Anna. And I am of the opinion, that Anna would withdraw his statement praising Modi," he said.

"It is a possibility that if he may not be satisfied with information that I have collected. Then I would urge him to come to Gujarat, and talk to people and social workers here and get more information," he added.

Agnivesh also asked Modi to keep his promise and announce new Lokayukta for Gujarat and get the new Lokayukta bill passed by the state Assembly.
