Social activist Swami Agnivesh, who stayed in the Bigg Boss house for three days as a guest, describes his stay as a rich experience. “I completely enjoyed my stay in the house. It was a rich experience. To be honest, it has increased by confidence level in the youth,” says the 72-year-old Arya Samaj leader.Elaborating on the same, he adds, "Mujhe lagta tha ki aaj ke youngsters kisi kaam ke nahi hai ... apne main hi mast hai. Par is ghar ke logo ne mera yeh perception badla hai aur mujh mein bahut umeed jagaai hai. They all have said that they will meet me once they are out of the house and will actively work with me towards social transformation and raising issues of national importance. I want to make it clear that my stint in Bigg Boss house was no publicity stunt".
Sharing his views on the fellow inmates, he says, "Everyone there is good from inside. Pooja Missra is quite aggressive but has a clean heart. Sidharth is very emotional and Vida even told me that I should come to Afghanistan."
Swami Agnivesh was recently in the news for his estrangement from social activist Anna Hazare’s anti-corruption campaign. He says, "I am ready to apologise to Anna. I will try to meet him at the earliest opportunity. I will try to clear the misunderstanding." He further adds, "I was never asked to leave the campaign and would concentrate on being a reconciliation factor now. I will try to bring everybody together. I will talk to Baba Ramdev, Aruna Roy, Santosh Hegde and work towards nation’s progress."
