Anna, who has so far maintained distance with AAP, surprised all with his praise for the same party. The septuagenarian, who himself had asked AAP leader not to share stage with him during his recent fast-unto-death protest, now claimed that protesting against AAP would be a loss.
Anyone who opposes AAP will be at great loss: Anna Hazare
Sending a clear warning for other political party leaders, Anna said, "Anyone who opposes AAP will be at great loss." Anna's statement surfaced just hours before AAP government faces crucial vote of confidence in Delhi Assembly on Thursday, Jan 2.
Anna along with Kejriwal and many other anti-corruption crusades had launched their protest in 2011 demanding a strong anti-corruption Lokpal Bill. After their initial movement together, Anna and Kejriwal departed following their rift when the latter decided to contest elections. Anna was not in favour of entering into politics.
However, Kejriwal moved forward and formed AAP which made history after forming government in Delhi. Just within one year of its launch, AAP managed to win 28 seats in the national capital. Now, with 8 Congress MLAs support, AAP is forming government.
