New Delhi, Nov 20 IBNS | 1 year ago

A day after a 2012 video showing Gandhian activist Anna Hazare showing his discontent over Arvind Kejriwal surfaced, the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) chief said he is 'deeply hurt'.


"My guru (mentor, Anna) questions my honesty! I am deeply hurt after seeing the video," Kejriwal told reporters.

"Sushilkumar Shinde (Union Home Minister) and Sheila Dikshit (Delhi Chief Minister) can put charges on me. But it hurts me a lot when Anna puts charges on me," he said.

Asked to clear the "Anna's Lokpal" controversy, Kejriwal said: "We said we want to bring in the Lokpal Bill for which Anna fought. We never said he is wioth our party. But since he has an objection to mentioning of his name in our manifesto, we removed that."

Regarding Anna's allegations on AAP funding sources, he said: "I also want myself to be probed immediately and if I am found guilty of any corruption, I will not contest the Delhi polls."

On Tuesday, a video dated December 2012 surfaced where Anna, in a meeting, alleged over Rs. 3 crore donated to him for his anti-corruption movement at Ramlila Maidan was misused by Kejriwal.
