Bareilly: Union Law Minister Salman Khurshid
on Moday said social activist Anna Hazare needs to be wary of his
own people who are "working in their own personal interests".

"The people who have gathered around Anna Hazare are
working in their own personal interests", Khurshid told
newspersons in neighbouring Shahjahanpur district this
evening.

Asked whether the UPA government was working under the
pressure of key alliance partner Mamata Bannerjee of Trinmool
Congress, he said "Mamata is a word everyone is fond of".

Supporting FDI in retail sector, he said it would
improve the economy and encourage foreign investment.

Expressing concern over the state of affairs in Uttar
Pradesh, he said arms licences were being issued liberally
which would in turn lead to more violence.

Advocating a transparent manner of issuing licences, he
said it would be looked into once the Congress government
comes to power in the state.

On senior minister in Mayawati Government, Naseemuddin
Siddiqui facing a Lokayukta inquiry, Khurshid said he would
not comment on it now but after the completion of the inquiry
all such people should be brought before the police.

Earlier addressing workers, he alleged people were fed
up of non-Congess governments in UP and claimed Congress would
come to power in the state.
