Anna unwell, not to attend Kejriwal’s oath ceremony

‘I am not well,’ Hazare said when asked whether he will be travelling to Delhi on 28 December to attend the ceremony. When questioned again, Hazare said, ‘I can’t say right now, I am not well.’

The Delhi chief minister-designate had said earlier in the day that he would personally invite his ‘guru’ Hazare for the ceremony.

‘Anna Hazare is my guru and I would personally talk to him on phone to invite him for the ceremony,’ he said. ‘The invitation would be sent from the government’s side and I had asked them to send an invitation to Hazare, Kiran Bedi and Justice Santosh Hegde,’ Kejriwal said.

The Gandhian had two days back said that he is yet to receive an invitation for the swearing-in ceremony but would not attend even if he got one owing to ill-health. Hazare had earlier declined to comment on the Kejriwal-led AAP’s decision to form the new government in Delhi, but added he would express his views when his former disciple acts on the Lokayukta issue.
