Kejriwal dreaming that I'll support him: Hazare

New Delhi, Dec 11 (IANS) Social activist Anna Hazare Tuesday said that former colleague and Aam Aadmi Party founder Arvind Kejriwal was "dreaming" if he thinks Hazare would support him.

"If he thinks, I'll support him, he is dreaming," Hazare said about Kejriwal.

He added that he never asked anyone to vote for a particular person or a party as he was not interested in politics.

Addressing a press conference here, Hazare said: "My stand on Kejriwal changed with time. I will say why when the time comes. If I say anything now, it will create more trouble."

Hazare had earlier said that he would support Kejriwal and his Aam Aadmi Party if it fielded honest candidates. However, last week Hazare said that Kejriwal had become "greedy" for power and he would not vote for him.

He also said the the time has come to dismiss parliament.

"I will start nationwide tour against government and corruption from Jan 30 from Patna district of Bihar," Hazare told reporters here.

"Our movement against corruption will continue for the next 25 years," he said.

"I am waiting for 2014 elections, if Jan Lokpal does not come in parliament, I will go for another agitation," Hazare said.

His new office of the movement will be inaugurated Jan 12, the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekanand, at Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra. On the same day, he will call 1,000 youths across the nation and take oath to convene the movement till the end.

Hazare's tour will be in order to awaken the people against the government and erupting corruption.

"The time has came to dismiss parliament. People sitting in parliament are allowing foreign countries to come to the Indian market," he said.

The parliamentarians are not following the constitution. They are dividing the people in the name of elections, Hazare said.
