Creation of new states will weaken the country: Anna Hazare
Azamgarh (UP): Creation of a Telangana state will not only encourage demand for new states but also new districts and this will only weaken the country, social activist and anti-graft crusader Anna Hazare said here today.
"The process which has been started by the government would not just encourage the demands for different states but also of new districts and this would only weaken the country", Hazare who was here in connection with his `Jantantra Yatra ` told newspersons.
Hazare said that even after Arvind Kejriwal and Baba Ramdev having parted ways with his team, it was still getting widespread support of people and this has encouraged its members.
He clarified that neither his team member nor its organisers would contest any election and his supporters would continue to serve the country.
On his `Jantrantra Yatra`, Hazare said the aim was to ensure that people with clean image and noble character reach Parliament.
Terming the suspension of IAS officer Durga Shakti Nagpal as unfortunate, he said that government should reconsider the decision as such honest officers are difficult to find today.
Hazare said that on the first day of the coming Parliament Session, he would sit on a hunger strike and the government would have to bring Janlokpal Bill for which he would continue to struggle.
