Kolkata, Feb 20: It is rather confusing what the 76-year old activist Anna Hazare wants. Especially after his joint press conference with the Chief Minister of West Bengal and Trinamool leader Mamata Banerjee, things have grown a shade darker.

Hazare, not only lashed out the BJP, but also his former aide Arvind Kejriwal, saying that he was a changed man now and is eyeing for the PM's seat."He (Arvind) had earlier said he will not take a bungalow but now, even after his resignation as the Delhi Chief Minister, he has not left the government bungalow. It can be clearly seen, Kejriwal has PM ambitions."

He voiced his support to Mamata Banerjee, calling her honest and simple. "I support Mamata, not for her party, but I support her views on the society and the country. I support her values and intentions," he said at the joint conference yesterday.

Mamata Banerjee is said to be the only person to have responded to Anna Hazare's letter with 17 demands. "Many people may question whether Didi would fulfil these demands after coming to power. But I have full faith in Mamata. These 17 points can indeed fulfil the economic needs of the country. Arvind Kejriwal didn't reply to my 17 demands, there's no question of supporting him," he said.

He further added,"I strongly believe that even if there are only 100 seats with Didi in control, the country would see a good change. She has not taken a car or house despite being a CM. As a CM, she could have led a luxurious life, like many other ministers. But she stays in a small room."

Anna Hazare and Mamata Banerjee have decided to launch 'Fight for India' campaign before the Lok Sabha elections.
