Kejriwal to meet Hazare Thursday

Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal Wednesday said he will visit Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra Thursday to extend support to Anna Hazare for his hunger strike to press for the Lokpal bill.

Kejriwal was addressing his first public meeting at Jantar Mantar after the Delhi assembly elections where the AAP won 28 seats out of 70.

Kejriwal said his party salutes the 76-year-old Hazare's anti-corruption movement and that they were with him.

"Tomorrow (Thursday), I and Kumar Vishwas will meet him (Anna Hazare) at Ralegan Siddhi. We respect his thoughts. Though he has restricted political leaders to share the stage, we will sit on the floor and listen to what he says," Kejriwal said.

Activist Anna Hazare's indefinite hunger strike entered the second day Wednesday.

Meanwhile, a few member of Hazare's Jantantra Morcha -- formerly known as India Against Corruption -- protested at Jantar Mantar here.
