New Delhi: Social crusader Anna Hazare said his protege Arvind Kejriwal has gone off-track in pursuit of power after the revelation of the Shunglu report.

He was pained to read about the allegations against the Delhi chief minister in the report, the 79-year-old said in a statement from his village in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra.

 

The committee set up by Delhi’s former L-G Najeeb Jung has indicted the Delhi government of bypassing law, nepotism and financial irregularities among others. Delhi Congress president Ajay Maken, who obtained the report through RTI, made the document public on Thursday.

Mr Hazare said he will never ever support the way Mr Kejriwal’s government broke all rules and laws and said such behaviour will weaken the country and society.

“He was my colleague in the fight against corruption... At that time, I felt the educated, new generation could help rid the country of graft,” the anti-corruption crusader said, adding that his “dream lies shattered”.
