Anna Hazare, Anna Hazare on PM Modi, Anna Hazare on narendra modi, Anna Hazare praises PM Modi Anna Hazare lauded PM Modi, saying that the Prime Minister is working for farmers and thinking of the society as a whole.

What could cause greater heart burn than to have your mentor praise your nemesis? Anna Hazare, the social activist and guru of Arvind Kejriwal, has just praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi! In an interview to Dainik Bhaskar, Anna Hazare lauded PM Modi, saying that the Prime Minister is working for farmers and thinking of the society as a whole. Anna also denied ever saying that Narendra Modi would not make an able Prime Minister.

“I never said that Modi would not make a good Prime Minister. In 2014, I was asked by reporters, who out of Modi and Rahul Gandhi would be my choice for the Prime Minister? I had just said that both of them think of industry and industrialists. Instead, they should be thinking of the farmers and the society (Dono ke hi dil mein udyog aur udyogpati hai. Inki jagah kisan aur samaj hona chahiye),” he said. Asked what his take is on PM Modi’s work now, Anna Hazare said, “He is now talking in the interest of the farmers and society. Work is also getting done (Ve kisano aur samaj ke hit ki baat kar rahe hai. Kaam bhi ho raha hai).”

In some consolation for Kejriwal though, Anna also said that the Delhi CM is a “good human being”. When asked about his disappointment with Kejriwal and his take on Prashant Bhushan and Yogendra Yadav forming a new party, Anna Hazare said, “Arvind is a good human being. I will till Prashant ji the same thing that I told Kejriwal, that it is not enough for you to be good. Everyone in your party has to be honest, but that is difficult. People can be honest, but it is often difficult for an entire party to be honest.”

Asked about the escalating tensions between India and Pakistan, Anna Hazare said that war is not good for both the countries. However, Anna supports Indian Army’s surgical strikes across the LoC. “We did not take the first step, what we did was in reply. It was Uri that was attacked first. If talks do not solve the problem, then it is right to give a reply,” Anna Hazare said. Incidentally, Delhi CM too had supported the Narendra Modi government and Indian Army’s decision to carry out surgical strikes across the LoC. Lauding PM Modi for having the courage to take this decision, Kejriwal had then gone on to demand proof of the surgical strikes. He had said that Modi should silence Pakistan, who is denying Indian Army’s claim. Kejriwal’s move to demand proof did not go down well with people, with most slamming the Delhi CM for trying to politicise the matter and raising questions on the Indian Army.

      Dinesh- stop your Modi hating, he has come off as a good leader who has interest of India in mind. So please change your stand man, show some courtesy and grace now. You guys would have thought in 2 years Modi will fall but look at what good things he has done for India and show me someone among your choice who can hold a candle to his leadership abilities and the way he has brought India back on international centre stage

        Anna Hazare does not know the price of carrot, apple, orange, al, urad dal, moong dal, home rentals, electricity Bill, water Bill, school fees, hospital bills. He is living in a fool's paradise

          On the day he endorsed congress's Lokpal bill, he lost all his credibility of the people.

            Anna is a bjp agent and has lost all his credibilty. He is not talking about Jan Lokpal over which Modi is sitting since 2 years after presidents signature. Instead he finds modi working for farmers. It will be good for Arvind to dump this fella for good.

                    Mr. Hazare sounds confused. He also seems to favour modi for some ulterior motive. Sometime he says modi is pro industry /corporate and some time he says modi is pro farmer. I think at his age he should stop commenting on any subject and even if he comments than it should be taken with a pinch of salt. Once he also had taken a stand that IAC should not contest elections. But all gurus have said that politics is what it is because good people do not want to enter politics.

                      What Kejari did was a take over. He just kidnapped the movement to further his CM ambition..

                          Totally deable, does he know the number of farmers who committed suicide in his own state ? This fellow and Baba Ramdev have stopped talking about corruption and black money. I am quite sure he will start another dharna at Ramlia maidan with his RSS chamchas as soon as Congress comes back to power. Till then join some frontal org of RSS.
