New Delhi: Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convenor Dilip Pandey on Tuesday slammed social activist and once Delhi Chief Minister Kejriwal’s mentor Anna Hazare for criticising and questioning the functioning of the Delhi government.
Hitting out at Hazare, Pandey said, “We have always taken suggestions from Anna Hazare.”
Earlier in the day, Hazare, while expressing that he was disappointed by Kejriwal, had said, “Arvind has been with me for many years. I was very hopeful for Arvind. I was hoping that he will set a different example for politics in India and also that he will give a different direction to the nation.”

Hazare continued and said that he was “very saddened to see” that some of Arvind Kejriwal’s colleagues have gone to jail while others are indulging in fraudulent activities.
Anna Hazare was the root of the anti-corruption movement that began in 2011, demanding the introduction of Jan Lokpal Bill. Arvind Kejriwal then was an active participant of the movement, but later split to form the Aam Aadmi Party.
