    New Delhi: Social activists Anna Hazare has asked Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal if the funds collected during Lokpal movement were used to fund the ongoing election campaign for Delhi Assembly elections.

    Hazare distanced himself from Kejriwal and said that to contest the Delhi assembly election was purely Kejriwal's decision and he has nothing to do with it.

    "You created a political party and decided to contest the Delhi assembly election, it is your decision. I have nothing to do with your political party, Delhi assembly and any assembly elections, whatsoever," Hazare clarified in his letter.

    In the letter, Hazare raised his concern over the questioning of funds collected for AAP.

    He said that he has information that funds collected during the 2011 anti-corruption movement are being utilised to fund the campaign of Aam Aadmi Party (AAP).

    Expressing his displeasure, Hazare said that some members of AAP may be utilizing his name and making it appear that he has offered his complete support to the AAP’s election campaign, which is completely untrue.

    In the letter, Hazare made references to certain SIMs, registered on his name, that were brought to his notice by members of the party. He expressed his fears and said that the SIMs can be subjected to misuse by miscreants.

    He also questioned Kejriwal's claim that he will implement Jan Lokpal bill by December 21. He said the bill can only be passed by Parliament and Delhi assembly (for which Kejriwal is contesting) is incapable of passing the Jan Lokpal bill.

    He asked Kejriwal to exercise caution in using his name and said that his image in the society is impeccable and he would not like it to be scathe.

    He concluded by saying that he is confident that none of the above stories are true and requested Kejriwal to immediately report if he is aware of any news or information, where by his name is being misused.
