Madhya Pradesh BJP president Prabhat Jha on Wednesday hit out at Gandhian Anna Hazare for allegedly dubbing all politicians as corrupt.
"Anna Hazare is not running a university or a college to give character certificates to politicians," Prabhat told PTI.
Jha said that Anna had no right to defame politicians who work hard year after year to achieve a place for themselves.
He also ridiculed the idea of people lighting candles in various parts of the country and said that such gestures would never be able to eradicate corruption from the country.
The anti-corruption crusader had resportedly said that politicians were interested only in money and power and are not interested in the welfare of the people.
