Arvind Kejriwal on Monday played down criticism by Anna Hazare of his anti-corruption group getting into politics, saying there was no fight between the two and they were combating graft through different routes.

Mr. Kejriwal, who met Mr. Hazare for the first time after they split on the question of forming a political party, said, “We came to meet him as he is in Delhi. We have a relationship.

There is no fight between us. He himself has said the goal is same though the paths are different. “We told him that whenever needed, we are there to help you. He told us media is creating an impression that there is a fight,” he told reporters after his meeting with Mr. Hazare.

Mr. Hazare had on Sunday fired a salvo at Mr. Kejriwal-led group, saying they had not responded to his questions on how to present a political alternative to the people in the fight against corruption and dubbed the path of politics as one full of dirt.
