Imitate Bihar, Gujarat chief ministers: Hazare

Malegaon: Anna Hazare's endorsement for Gujarat Chief Minister Narendra Modi and his advice to other Chief Ministers to imitate him are receiving strong condemnations from the activists.

 

"There has been little or no rural development in the state. In fact gauchar lands and irrigated farmlands have been stealthily taken by the government and sold off at ridiculous prices to a small club of industrialists", renowned activist Mallika Sarabhai wrote April 11 in a letter to Anna Hazare.

 

"There has been no Lokayukta in Gujarat for nearly seven years so hundreds of complaints against corruption are lying unheard. From the Sujalam Sufalam scam of 1700 crores to the NREGS boribund scam of 109 crores, the fisheries scam of 600 crores, every department is involved in thousands of crores of scams."

 

"The poor and rural people are being sold to Modi's friends the industrialists. The state is in terrible debt because of his largess to industry while 21 lakh farmers wait for compensation", she added.

Stating that she is deeply shocked by Hazare's endorsement of Narendra Modi's rural development, she wrote, "Your endorsement is appalling and we will be forced to distance ourselves from the Lokpal movement unless it is irrevocably retracted."

 

Anna Hazare while addressing  a press conference in New Delhi April 10 advised the chief ministers across the country to replicate the development work done by Nitish Kumar and Narendra Modi.

"The work done by chief ministers of Bihar (Nitish Kumar) and Gujarat (Narendra Modi) should be done by chief ministers of all states," Anna Hazare said.

"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 said.

 

Meanwhile netizens are also expressing surprise over Anna Hazare's statement. Minutes after ummid.com published this story, a netizen who identifies him as Singhvi Prakash commented, "Anna Hazare in his true colours. You are not in support of any party, but have soft corner for BJP and Sangh Parivar?? World knows what development work, Modi has done in Gujarat. Do you want other Chief Ministers to imitate that? The anti Muslim riots?"

 

Another netizen, who identified himself as Riyaz Saifi commented, "Hazareji if you do not support any party then what people like Ramdev doing with you? He is known to have donated huge money to BJP during the last elections."
