Bhopal: Madhya Pradesh BJP President Prabhat
Jha on Wednesday hit out at Gandhian Anna Hazare for allegedly
dubbing all politicians as corrupt.

"Anna Hazare is not running a university or a college to
give character certificates to politicians," Prabhat said.

Jha said that Anna had no right to defame politicians who
work hard year after year to achieve a place for themselves.

He also ridiculed the idea of people lighting candles in
various parts of the country and said that such gestures
would never be able to eradicate corruption from the country.

The anti-corruption crusader had reportedly said that
politicians were interested only in money and power and not
interested in the welfare of the people.
