New Delhi: Anna Hazare Thursday regretted that
some people "tend to ignore" the positive results of his work and talk incoherently about him and his organisation.
"The colour of goggles you wear will colour the world for
you. Those people having doubts regarding the activities
carried out by our trusts can personally have a look and we
will help in clearing all your doubts.
"But I feel one should for no reason not indulge in
incoherent discussions," he said in his latest blog posting.
For the last few years, he claimed, people have been
talking incoherently about him and his organisation.
"There are many people out there who throw accusations
and counter-accusations on our organisations but fail to see
our work and contribution done for the betterment of the
society and the nation," he said.
People from all over India and abroad visit a tiny
village like Ralegan Sidddhi to have a glimpse of our
development activities, he said, adding till today 6 lakh
people have visited the village and taken inspiration.
"Five people have done their PhD on our village`s
development. Government felicitated me with Padmashree and
Padmabhushan. It is unfortunate that some people tend to
ignore these positive realities," he said.
He said during his 12 years of army service, he had to
put up a fight against 11 army officers for the soldiers`
lodging, boarding and other questions. "Following this I
occupied a special place in the heart of the soldiers and they
gave me a pen name `Shastriji`," he said.
"In spite of the hardships and troubles, it was clear in
my mind that I was doing this for my country and after 12
years of service I got the right to pension. The role of `Jai
Jawan` was for my country and now to fulfill my role of `Jai
Kisaan` I took voluntary retirement from the army," he added.
