"People should use their franchise to elect candidates with good character, and should not elect on the basis of political affiliations," he said, interacting with the media  in Sagar, Madhya Pradesh.

Stating that there was no "real democracy" in the country, Hazare said the democracy had been decimated by the party system.

True democracy would be realised when an independent candidate of good character is able to enter the Parliament by winning a Lok Sabha election, he said.
