Kejriwal meets Hazare, gets a taunt in return!

February 08, 2014 23:40 IST

Arvind Kejriwal met Anna Hazare on Saturday night shortly after which the Gandhian had a jibe at the Delhi chief minister saying some people take bungalows despite having promised not to do so.

The meeting between Kejriwal and Hazare lasted for around twenty minutes. Aam Aadmi Party leaders described it as a "courtesy call".

"Kejriwal met Hazare at Maharashtra Sadan in New Delhi and the meeting lasted for 20 minutes," Deepak Vajpayee, a media representative of AAP, said.

AAP leaders said a number of issues came up at the Hazare-Kejriwal meeting but declined to specify them.

Shortly before the meeting with Kejriwal, Hazare took a pot shot at the Delhi CM and praised his West Bengal counterpart Mamata Banerjee for her simplicity.

Hazare told reporters that Mamata wears slippers even after she became CM but some persons take bungalows despite promising not to do so.

Hazare, who had Kejriwal as a key figure in his anti-corruption movement in 2011, has had differences with the Delhi CM over formation of Aam Aadmi Party, after which the two parted ways.

Hazare said that from March-end or the first week of April, he would travel across the country to search for good persons.
