Ranchi: Congress on Tuesday claimed that
Arvind Kejriwal, one of the key aides of Anna Hazare`s
campaign against corruption, has been nursing political
ambition in the shadow of Anna Hazare.
"Kejriwal hails from Hisar and is using Anna Hazare to
launch his political platform. Can`t he see corruption of
charge-sheeted Ajay Singh Chautala of Indian National Lok Dal
candidate from Hisar while Congress candidate Jai Prakash is
clean," AICC spokesman Shakeel Ahmed said.

"Kejriwal`s aim is to start his political career,
using Anna Hazare`s shoulders. And I don`t know whether Anna
Hazare can see it," he said.

Ahmed said RSS and VHP publicly claiming that Anna
Hazare`s agitation at Ramlila ground in New Delhi was `backed
by thousands of activists` from their outfits.

"They said about 20,000 people had been fed free
during Anna Hazare`s fast. And now it is up to Anna Hazare to
judge whether his Gandhian ideals are serving right in the
background of their (RSS/VHP) declarations," he said here.
Earlier during the day, Kejriwal maintained that Team
Anna was not campaigning for any party in Hisar bye-election
and that it was not responsible if opposition benefited from
Team Anna`s appeal to the voters to refrain from voting for
Congress for its "failure" to bring the Lokpal Bill in
Parliament.

Ahmed was in Ranchi in connection with shardh ceremony
of Rajya Sabha member Ramdayal Munda, who passed away on
September 30.
