Hazare's change of heart came after he met Singh on Wednesday afternoon in New Delhi. "Singh told me, he had shared stage with Modi only because it was an ex-servicemen's rally and that he would not be joining the BJP as is being speculated. With his stand clear, I don't think there is going to be any problem for our work to continue," Hazare told media persons after the meeting.
After he fell out with former lieutenant Arvind Kejriwal, who went on to form the Aam Aadmi Party, Hazare had formed the Jantantra Morcha with Singh.
Commenting on the high-voltage drama of the ordinance protecting convicted members of Parliament being opposed by Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi - the ordinance was withdrawn later in the evening - Hazare said: "Parliament is a sacred temple, only good people need to go. I am sure, even when lot of political parties are opposing it, they would be taught a lesson in the forthcoming general elections."
Hazare is in Delhi for a training session for volunteers of Jantantra Morcha later on in the week.
