Arvind Kejriwal vs Anna Hazare Kejriwal sent heart-shaped letters to Anna all year round, begging him to support their anti-corruption movement’s political avatar. Anna petulantly dumped him and pointedly ignored AAP when his pet Lokpal Bill was passed. Struggling with deeper existential issues in Delhi, Kejriwal and Co dubbed the bill ‘Jokepal’.

Cash Trash Expect the unexpected, somehow one thought Anna Hazare would have learnt that lesson by now. At a recent rally in Varanasi in support of his anti-corruption campaign, the organisers handed out coupons with his photo to collect donations. Somehow Anna got wind of this and immediately he let loose. No permission was given to collect money on his behalf, he clarified. He then declared that he would not hesitate to start legal proceedings against those responsible for collecting the money. At which point, the organisers felt they’d had enough and launched into sloganeering against the leader himself.

The Road to Hell isn’t Paved... Our man of the masses, Anna Hazare, has not been keeping well of late. His blood pressure is erratic and it seems he suffers from a nagging pain in his neck and waist. This has forced him to cancel several of his anti-corruption public meetings in Madhya Pradesh, where he’s been campaigning of late. But there is ano­ther reason for his ills—the state’s roads. So bad are they that Anna has been forced to move around in a car instead of the usual bus that he tra­vels in. This has set tongues wagging about how Anna must change track, focus on the pitiable roads instead of corruption.
