Anna to campaign for right people in Kejriwal's party

Bhubaneswar, Nov 29 (IANS) Social activist Anna Hazare Thursday said he may campaign for the newly formed Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) if right candidates were put up in the election by its founder Arvind Kejriwal.

Referring to a telephonic conservation recently Kejriwal had with him, Anna said: "I told him to select good people."

"I will examine the candidates. If they are found to be good, if they are proper candidates, I will campaign for those candidates," he said, addressing a public meeting in Odisha capital Bhubaneswar.

The 75−year−old anti−corruption crusader also said the ways of him and Kejriwal are different but the aim is one.

Describing the movement launched by him as another freedom movement, the veteran activist also said the youths must prepare to sacrifice for the nation.

Obsderving that the task ahead as not easy, Hazare said: "You must be prepared for 15−20 years".

Hazare on a three−day visit here was given a grand welcome by thousands of India Against Corruption (IAC) activists on his arrival at the Biju Patnaik Airport here.

He was escorted from the airport to the state guest house and then to the meeting venue by a motorcycle procession.

"He is scheduled to address farmers Saturday in the coastal town of Jagatsinghpur, about 100 km from here. He is also scheduled to interact with students of a private engineering college in Bhubaneswar," IAC's national core committee member Akshay Kumar said.
