New Delhi, June 12(ANI): Veteran social activist Anna Hazare has written a letter to Congress President and United Progressive Alliance (UPA) Chairperson Sonia Gandhi saying that her party leaders and ministers were "telling lies" to defame him.
Hazare also said that the politicians are trying to mislead people on issues.
"I request you to ensure that responsible leaders from your party should not resort to character assassination and mislead people on the Lokpal Bill," Hazare wrote in the letter.
"If the Congress party has any concrete evidence, please make it public," he added.
He also criticized Congress General Secretary Janardhan Dwivedi for his statement that the social activist was a "mask" of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS).
"If the responsible leaders in the party and government resort to spreading lies, it is not good for the future of the country. Many senior leaders in your party have said that I am a mask of BJP and RSS," Hazare wrote.
"In the 73 years of my life, I have never gone close to any party or front because there is corruption everywhere," he added. (ANI)
