Mumbai, Feb 10: Gandhian Anna Hazare on Tuesday blamed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for BJP's humiliating defeat in crucial Delhi Assembly election.

BJP's loss is PM Modi's defeat: Anna
Talking to media persons the anti-corruption crusader criticised the NDA government for its policies. Hazare also criticised the Narendra Modi government for enacting a legislation that makes it easy for authorities to take over land from the farmers.

Not only Hazare, several experts are also blaming BJP's central leadership for the party's humiliating loss in Delhi polls.

He also sent his "best wishes" to his protege and AAP convener Arvind Kejriwal as his party headed for a landslide win in the Delhi assembly election. AAP is heading towards a historic victory in Delhi as the party has won almost 54 per cent votes in Delhi.

"I extend my best wishes to Kejriwalji," Hazare told journalists at his village Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra.

Kejriwal became a household name when he was a key aide to Hazare when the latter launched a hunger strike at the Ramlila Maidan in Delhi in 2011 in support of a Lokpal Bill.

Hazare urged Kejriwal "not to forget that 'andolan' (struggle) whether or not you are the chief minister".

He said Kejriwal earned people's trust by taking part in that anti-corruption agitation. "That is why he got so much support now. I urge him not to make the mistakes he committed earlier."
