The anti-corruption crusader has opened a blog, twitter and facebook accounts to interact with the public.
Entering the cyberworld with a blog, facebook and a twitter account, Anna Hazare on Thursday accused “some government agents” of creating an image that it was due to their “favourite ministers” that he gave up his fast in Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan in August.
“It was only when my inner voice permitted me I broke my fast after getting assurance from the government. The reason I am clearing the misconceptions here is I came to understand some government agents tried to propagate and create an image that it was the handiwork of their favourite ministers that I gave up my fast.
“I came across articles of self-praise, interviews published by them. This is a false propaganda,” Mr. Hazare said in his multi—lingual blog http://annahazaresays.wordpress.com/.
Giving some insight into what transpired before he called off his 12-day-old fast for a strong Lokpal, Mr. Hazare wrote that till the last moment, the government tried to break the movement.
As talks progressed regarding calling off his fast, he said the people, who came to meet his team members, the middle-man, the Minister all of them had “different versions, different assurances.
“It was the responsibility of the government that they scrutinise the people they had sent for negotiations whether they were corrupt or had clean image. That was for the Government to think. I held talks with them considering they were Government representatives! The answers lay with the government,” he said.
After Mr. Harare called off the fast, questions have been raised, particularly in media interviews, over the participation of Union Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh, who is facing allegations in Adarsh scam, and Bhayyuji Maharaj in mediation.
