Anna Hazare, Arvind Kejriwal
New Delhi, March 9: Months after Arvind Kerjriwal and Anna Hazare parted ways due to infighting, Kejriwal has blamed Anna Hazare for the split saying that there was a 'trust deficit'. The movement for the Janlokpal bill which started off with great aplomb in April 2011, lost momentum as infighting within members of India Against Corruption (IAC) began to take over.

"I don't know why Anna accused me of being driven by the lure of money and personal ambition. Is there any evidence on this? Just two days before he unleashed this charge, he told me he will campaign for me. I can't read Anna's mind. But I still have the highest respect for him," said Kejriwal at Headlines Today's Right To Be Heard programme.

"Anna feels the movement should continue. We feel until the politics of the country is changed, nothing is going to change. Now, it's up to the people to judge me."

With charges of hatching a plot to kill Anna to 'usher in a revolution' is doing the rounds, Kejriwal rubbished them. "Swami Agnivesh, who levelled these accusations, was part of the team. Why didn't he go out and tell Prashant Bhushan and Kiran Bedi that I was hatching a murderous conspiracy. Why is he telling this now when elections are round the corner? He's the same man who was caught on camera selling the movement to Kapil Sibal," he was quoted in India Today.

He has started his poll campaign in Delhi. We have to wait and watch if Aam Admi Party will be able to garner votes.
