Anna fasts, Kejriwal celebrates
New Delhi, Dec 11: As the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) celebrated its sensational debut in the Delhi Assembly elections here at its 'Thank You' rally, some where in Maharastra, a humble Anna Hazare continued his fast to bring in the Jan Lokpal Bill.

TV screens on Wednesday evening showed two images simultaneously. One of the Jantar Mantar, where scores of people had gathered for the Thank You rally organised by the AAP. The rally had all the big stars of the party including Arvind Kejriwal, Manish Sisodia, Kumar Vishwas among others on the dais.

People cheered as Kejriwal walked on to the stage. Vishwas, who didn't contest any elections but made his presence felt in the election campaigns said that this was not a celebration. "This is just the first step, the fight beings now," he said.

Many were present at Kejriwal's rally, while only few supported Hazare

On the other hand, in Ralegan Siddhi Kejriwal's guru Anna Hazare continued with his indefinite fast for the second day in front if a crowd that did even cross the 100 mark.

While Kejriwal, who supported Hazare in his fight to bring in the Jan Lokpal Bill, celebrated his party's victory, many said that he should have been with Hazare on Wednesday supporting his cause.

Kejriwal still said that he supported the Jan Lokpal Bill and will continue to fight for it, but the pictures on Wednesday evening told a different story altogether. Anna Hazare was left in the cold to fight all by himself for the Jan Lokpal Bill.

Both Kejrwal and Hazare began their fight for the Jan Lokpal Bill in 2011 where both of them went on indefinite hunger fast, But soon Hazare and Kejriwal parted ways and Kejriwal went on to form the AAP, while Hazare was left to fight on his own.
