Ralegan Siddhi, Nov. 24 (ANI): Veteran social activist Anna Hazare has poked fun at the assault on Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar, asking why the youth had hit Pawar only once.
"They slapped him? Only one slap," he told the media here.
Pawar was slapped by a man named Harvinder Singh at the NDMC Center in New Delhi today. The man was later taken into custody by the security guards at the scene.
He is currently in the custody of the Delhi Police, who are questioning him.
Harvinder Singh, a resident of Rohini, is the same man who had assaulted former telecom minister Sukhram last Saturday.
"These politicians have been causing nothing but trouble in the country. They only know how to make speeches, but never act on what they say. They deserve to be attacked. I will continue to attack politicians. I am the same person who attacked Sukhram last week and I will continue doing this. I do not regret any of my actions," Singh said claiming that Sharad Pawar is responsible for the misery of the people and the high prices of essential commodities. (ANI)
