Kejriwal meets Anna at Maharashtra Sadan
New Delhi, Feb 8: Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal met social activist Anna Hazare at Maharashtra Sadan in the Delhi on Saturday evening. Kejriwal termed the meeting as a courtesy call.

Kejriwal and Anna were once a part of the India Against Corruption movement. They had parted ways ever since the Kejriwal launched his political party, Aam Aadmi Party, in October 2012.

Today, speaking to Indian express Anna said that Arvind Kejriwal had not lived up to his expectations as the Delhi Chief Minister.

Kejriwal's party is now preparing to make a debut on the national platform by contesting in Lok Sabha polls.

Anna Hazare today said that he supported Mamata Banerjee, not Kejriwal, as prime minister.

"It is the thought that matters. I have always said, since Arvind was with me, that he believes in sacrifice and has a good character. But he is in a party now. Somewhere our paths are different. He has strength, and so does Mamata. She's a Chief Minister, but she still lives in her father's small house. She did not take a government bungalow or car. She wears hawai chappals and a simple sari, and travels 8-10 kilometres inside villages. These kind of people can make a difference to the country," he told Indian Express.
