Harishwar, a teacher at a Meerut college, filed the case yesterday at an Additional Chief Judicial Magistrate's court, against Kejriwal for misleading supporters to believe that Team Anna will keep its distance from mainstream politics.
"I had joined the cause believing it is apolitical, however, the recent announcement by Team Anna to join politics has deeply hurt me. This is a clear case of cheating," Harishwar said today.
The court will hear the witnesses on Aug 14.
Hazare and his aides had called off their indefinite fast on Aug 3 and pitched for entering electoral politics by forming a political alternative.
