This is the third blog handle of Hazare in the past over an year with the first one, operated by journalist Raju Parulekar, being closed following a bitter feud between both of them.
The new handle -- annahazarethinks.blogspot.in -- and the first post on Jan Lokpal was publicised on twitter by Hazare's close aide Suresh Pathare. After falling out with Parulekar in November last year, Hazare's blog -- annahazaresays -- was managed by India Against Corruption, the erstwhile Team Anna, in its official website.
The first post in the new blog talked about his pet theme Jan Lokpal Bill and how the government "cheated" the country on the issue.
His last blog appeared in the IAC website only six days ago in which he alleged that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh was "misleading" the country on the Lokpal Bill issue.
Asked about the need for a new blog, Pathare told PTI through a text message, "Yes it's a new blog. Whenever he is in Ralegan Siddhi, it's easy to update it."
