Agreeing to a 17-point agenda proposed by Anna Hazare for political parties, the Trinamool Congress has sought guidance from the Gandhian activist.      

"We accept your 17 points economic agenda and need your guidance also," Trinamool's national general secretary Mukul Roy said in a recent letter to Hazare.              

He was replying to a letter from the anti-corruption crusader which had sought the party's support in implementing a list of programmes in Parliament after this year's Lok Sabha polls.       

Roy said that most of these issues pertaining to improving the life of common man, development of village-based industries, transparency in acquiring agricultural land, improving the condition of the minorities, etc, have already been included in their party manifesto for the 2009 Lok Sabha elections and the 2011 state Assembly polls.      

"I would like to assure you that we are wholeheartedly working to incorporate many more such ideas in our party's 2014 Lok Sabha election manifesto as well," the Trinamool leader said.        

TMC national spokesperson Derek O'Brien said, "The lives of Annaji and Mamata didi are aligned in their simplicity. We will look upto him to guide us".    

Hazare had yesterday lauded the Trinamool supremo for her simplicity.                

In the letter, Roy also congratulated Hazare on his relentless efforts to bring transparency in public life.
