Rijiju also shared portions of an undated interview of Hazare in which the activist purportedly sounded critical of the Delhi excise policy.
"Now they have captured power I am sure they will not even listen to Annaji. Corruption was an excuse to fool Annaji and the people.
"Anna ji was used only to capture Power and to loot the resources in the name of corruption," the Union minister wrote in English and Hindi on Twitter.
