New Delhi: Refusing to comment on fellow activist Kiran Bedi's political debut, Anna Hazare on Wednesday said that he doesn't favour getting into the dirty politics.
The septuagenarian crusader told ANI that he doesn't want to speak about politics which he considers dirty nowadays.
“Rajneetik gandagi mein main jaana pasand nahin karta,” Hazare was quoted as saying.
Hazare's remarks come amid speculations that Kiran Bedi miffed his mentor on joining the BJP.
On the other hand, Bedi has maintained that she tried calling Hazare many times, but could not get through to him. “I called Anna-ji on the telephone; sometimes he was sleeping and sometimes he was taking rest. I will call him again,” said Bedi according to a report in PTI.
The 65-year-old former IPS officer was inducted into the party fold in the presence of BJP president Amit Shah and Union Ministers Arun Jaitley and Harsh Vardhan. She was later announced as the party's chief ministerial candidate for Delhi Assembly elections and will contest poll from Krishna Nagar constituency.
