Hazare sends best wishes to Kejriwal

Ralegan-Siddhi (Maharashtra), Dec 28: Anti-corruption campaigner Anna Hazare Saturday congratulated Arvind Kejriwal on his becoming Delhi’s new chief minister, and said he was confident that the Aam Aadmi Party leader will do a good job.

“Today is your swearing-in as the CM of Delhi. Owing to ill health, I am not able to come and take part in it. My best wishes are with you,” Hazare said in a brief letter to Kejriwal.

Hazare also conveyed his best wishes to the other AAP legislators who took oath as ministers in the new government.

Hazare, whom Kejriwal considers his guru but with whom he parted ways because of his political ambitions, earlier said he was confident that Kejriwal will do a good job.

“We have been together for many years. I am confident that he will do good work,” Hazare told reporters here.
