Anna Hazare took an indirect jibe at Aam Aadmi Party leader Arvind Kejriwal while lauding West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee for her simplicity on Sunday.

“Banerjee wears slippers even after becoming the CM but some people take bungalows, forgetting their earlier promises,” he said in an apparent reference to the Delhi chief minister.

Asked if Banerjee was a good prime ministerial nominee, Hazare evaded a direct reply, noting, "I did not say that. I had written a letter to all parties that if they are willing to accept a 17-point agenda, then they can let me know."

Is Team Anna inching closer towards BJP?

Kejriwal had a 20-minute meeting with Hazare on Saturday night at Maharashtra Sadan in New Delhi. AAP leaders described the meeting as a “courtesy call”.

The septagenarian leader, who had Kejriwal as a key figure in his anti-corruption movement in 2011, has had differences with the Delhi CM over formation of the Aam Aadmi Party, after which the two parted ways.

Hazare said that from March-end or the first week of April, he would travel across the country to search for people for his movement.
