Says politics will not deliver a better future to people

In an apparent sign that he is distancing himself from Arvind Kejriwal-led group’s political foray, Anna Hazare on Sunday said politics will not deliver a better future to the people and asked those planning to join his anti-corruption movement to contact him in Ralegan Siddhi.

Till now, the Hazare-led movement was headquartered in Delhi and run under the banner of India Against Corruption, a non-registered body perceived to be controlled by Mr. Kejriwal.

This is the second time in the past three days that Mr. Hazare commented on the issue anti-corruption movement taking a political turn. The first was in a video shot by those opposed to the political course taken by a section of the erstwhile Team Anna. The latest is in his blog post.

The remarks are significant as Mr. Hazare publicised the address of Brashtachar Virodhi Jan Andolan in Ralegan Siddhi as his contact point for those who want to associate with his movement.
