Hazare to campaign for Mamata now
Roy, who called on Hazare at his native village of Ralegan Siddhi in Ahmednagar district on Thursday, said that Hazare would have a meeting with TMC chief Mamata Banerjee in Delhi on 18 February. The former Railway minister, Roy who met the anti-graft crusader as Mamta’s emissary, said his party was ‘proud’ of getting Hazare’s support in a departure from his known stand of not canvassing for any political party in the elections.

‘We feel proud that such a senior mass leader has hailed the leadership of Mamta Banerjee who had replied to his 17-point economic programme which is being incorporated in the party election manifesto,’ he added.

Roy quoted Hazare as saying that Mamata was an ‘honest leader committed to root out corruption’.
