During an interview with NDTV, Anna answered in affirmative when asked - Is Kejriwal greedy for power? However, the septuagenarian praised his former aide Kejriwal saying that "Usme tyag ki bhavna hai, woh ghar ke baare me kabhi itna sochta nahi hai, jitna samaj aur desh ke baare me sochta hai (He is sacrificing and more concerned about the society than his own family)."
The Gandhian, while talking to NDTV, said, "...aur swarth, paise ka swarth nahi hai lekin abhi rajneeti me jane ke baad dusra swarth hai, matlab woh khud mantri nahi banega...(...he doesn't have greed for money but after joining politics, ha has a different greed)."
Kejriwal and Anna departed their ways when the former launched his own political party in order to fight with the corrupt system of the country.
Despite Anna's shocking statement, Kejriwal refused to make any comment saying, "I won't comment till I have heard the remarks myself."
Kejriwal and his new team on Wednesday hurled several allegations against the richest industrialist of the country. According to the allegations, both Congress and BJP have been supporting Reliance for their personal gains.
