Lucknow: Ousted SP leader Amar Singh, who
had a face-off with Shanti Bhushan over a CD that allegedly
showed him talking about fixing a judge, today said there will
always be questions on Anna Hazare`s movement till the lawyer
and his son Prashant accompany the Gandhian.

"Anna Hazare is a matured person for a social campaign,
but political weapons are needed in politics. Political war
cannot be fought on the streets, it will only be complete in
the Parliament," Amar said on the sidelines of an Iftar party
here.
"Till the people like Shanti Bhushan and Prashant
Bhushan are on his side, a question mark on the credibility
of his campaign would continue," he added.

The Rashtriya Lok Manch chief Amar Singh said Hazare`s
campaign is not worthless, but it has a dark spot. "We want
him to be a spotless moon."

According to a recently surfaced CD, Bhushan allegedly
heard talking to Amar Singh, Mulayam Singh Yadav about a judge
who could be bribed for Rs 4 crore for a desired verdict.

Singh said during freedom struggle, Mahatma Gandhi gave
people a political alternative in form of Congress and
political leaders like Jawhar Lal Nehru, Vallabhbhai Patel
and Maulana Abul Kalam Azad. "Hazare should tell what
alternative he has and who will be the Prime Minister if
Manmohan Singh is removed," Singh said.
Singh said on the issue of keeping the Prime Minister out
of the ambit of Lokpal he supports the government.
"It will limit the PM. If we start having suspicion on
the PM, then how this country will run," he said.
