Take legal action against those misusing my name: Hazare


Mumbai, Apr 6: Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare on Monday asked the authorities to take legal action against those misusing his name and misguiding bureaucrats.

"It has come to our notice that some people, using forged letters, are misguiding bureaucrats by claiming Anna Hazare has appointed them to tehsil, district and state-level committees.


This is to clarify that all committees under the Bhrashtachar Virodhi Jan Andolan (Trust) have been disbanded two years ago. We have not appointed any activist on any government committee," Hazare said in a statement at his native village Ralegan Siddhi in Ahmednagar district.

Legal action should be taken against those misusing my name and that of the BVJA, he said.

"To ensure that the anti-corruption movement is based on character, only activists who will give a written undertaking not to ever contest polls from any political party will be admitted to the movement," Hazare said.

"The agitation should be to fight social injustice and not for vested individual interests," he said.
