Social Activist Anna Hazare, who is planning a two-day protest at Jantar Mantar against the resent amendments to the Land Acquisition Act by the Centre, has welcomed politicians to take part in the protest.

“I’m going to meet Aravind Kejriwal on February 23. We welcome Aravind Kejriwal, he is now a Chief Minister and not a common man. He can take part, but we will not share the stage” he said.

He also expressed his revulsion in the usage of language by Prime Minister Narendra Modi against Kejriwal during the Delhi election campaign.

“If any Chief Minister wants to take part in the protest, they can. If Rahul Gandhi wants to be a part of the protest, he has to be a part of common men” Hazare said.

Anna Hazare also said that he had not denied having talk with Kiran Bedi and that he is no more in touch with Baba Ramdev.
