Four days after a bitter split on the issue of forming a party, Arvind Kejriwal today expressed hope that Anna Hazare will be back with his group in another "three-four months" if it can work honestly in politics.

"Some people say Anna has left us. He hasn't. He is in our hearts. None can take him away from us. It is just that while he believes that politics is a dirty thing, we are of the view that we have to enter politics to clean it.

"He will come back to them in three-four months once he see our honest and dedicated work," Kejriwal told supporters at a protest, the first one after the split on September 19 after Hazare objected to the anti-corruption movement taking a political plunge.

Supporters of Kejriwal have been critical of Hazare on social networking sites after the split. Yesterday, Kejriwal appealed to his supporters not to target Hazare saying the veteran activist is their respected leader and whose guidance is valued.
