Activist Anna Hazare on his 6th day of hunger strike said, he was “used by the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)” to win the 2014 Lok Sabha elections.
“Yes. The BJP used me in 2014. Everybody knows that it was my agitation for Lokpal that catapulted the BJP and also the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) to power. Now I have lost all regards for them,” Anna Hazare said in his village Ralegan-Siddhi.
He also asked,”For how long will the lies continue? This government has let down the people of the country. The state government’s claims that 90 percent of my demands have been conceded are also false,”
