New Delhi: As Anna Hazare sat on a one-day
fast demanding a strong Lokpal, Mahatma Gandhi`s great
grandson Tushar Gandhi On Sunday attacked the activist saying his
methods are "not Gandhian" as they are becoming a "mere
ritual".

"His methods are not Gandhian because this is now turning
into a mere ritual that every time he lands up in Delhi, he
goes to Rajghat. It does not seem to be that the inspiration
carry any further than that...because there is talks about
beating up and hitting people," he said.

His remarks came as Hazare went to Rajghat and spend
around half-an-hour meditating there.

"I would wish that more than the ritual, the
understanding (of Gandhian principles) would be there, then
the inspiration would be genuine," he said.
