Answering the question raised by the Gujarat-based activists, anti corruption activist Anna Hazare mentioned that he is against all sorts of communalism, communal violence, and discrimination on the basis of caste or religion even though he has praised Chief Ministers Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar for development of Gujarat, especially in rural areas.
The protesters from Vadodara, Rohit Prajapati and Trupti Shah, advised Anna Hazare to meet people in person who are residing in rural areas in order to grab a look on actual situation. The statements based on the false propaganda of the Government has no significance.
Meanwhile, Congress leader Rashid Alvi furiously reacted against Anna Hazare’s statement and said no secular person in the country can support Modi and any supporter of Modi is indeed a supporter of 2001 riots in Gujarat. On the other hand, a leader from Bharatiya Janata Party, Shahnawaz Hussain, praised the activist for appreciating development work in BJP-ruled states.
Mr. Hazare, in a defending note, said that he was urging mediapersons to support and understand the mission against corruption as the movement was not associated with any political party neither seeking any political benefit. The movement is strongly supported by people from the different faiths and religions and has no intention to spread communalism.
“I am not in support of any party, but the work they (Modi and Nitish Kumar) have done at the grassroots level is needed. The rural development they have done should be imitated”, he added.
