AAP using Anna Hazare`s name, says BJP

The Delhi unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party said the Aam Aadmi Party was using activist Anna Hazare`s name for their political benefits.

New Delhi: The Delhi unit of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Tuesday said the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) was using activist Anna Hazare`s name for their political benefits.

"They are using his (Hazare) name and clean image for their benefits. I am not making any allegations but Hazare has himself asked them (AAP) not to use his name," Delhi BJP president Vijay Goel said here.

Goel`s statement comes a day after Hazare wrote a letter to Arvind Kejriwal of AAP, asking him not to use his name in AAP`s poll campaigning, ahead of the December 4 Delhi Assembly Elections.

The AAP leader along with Hazare had held an anti-corruption campaign that gripped Delhi two years ago.

"Kejriwal always talks of honesty and transparency, then why is he using Hazare?" asked the BJP.
