Kejriwal on PM's appeal to Hazare: No comment

delhi Updated: Aug 15, 2011 14:58 IST

Civil society activist Arvind Kejriwal on Monday refused to comment on Prime Minister Manmohan Singh asking Gandhian Anna Hazare not to go on an indefinite hunger strike.

"I won't like to comment on the honourable prime minister's speech as that is his point of view and maybe we won't agree to it," he said.

The prime minister obliquely appealed to Gandhian Anna Hazare, who will fast from Tuesday in support of a strong Lokpal, not to go on hunger strike.

Addressing the nation on Independence Day, Manmohan Singh Singh said that those who don't agree with some aspects of a proposed Lokpal legislation "should not resort to hunger strikes".

But he did not mention Hazare by name.

Kejriwal, a close confidante of Hazare, said the Gandhian was going ahead with the fast at Jaipraskash Narayan Memorial park near ITO from Tuesday.
