Social activist Anna Hazare on Thursday said he was happy with the way the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) government was functioning in Delhi. He said the party could emerge as a third option in future.
Addressing a press conference in his village Ralegan Siddhi, Hazare said, "Kejriwal has a clean record and has a will to do something good for the country. From the way he is governing Delhi, it is possible that AAP emerges as a third option for the voters."
Hazare said he was sure that the Kejriwal government would soon take steps to set up a strong Lokayukta in Delhi by passing a Bill.
"He took the decision about water and power in the first few days. Now he will go ahead and pass a Lokayukta Bill in Delhi. I am hoping that if Kejriwal passes a strong Bill in Delhi, other governments will also emulate that. We can say that because after Arvind's decision on water and electricity some politicians have demanded that similar steps be taken in Maharashtra," said Hazare.
As the AAP government sought a vote of confidence on the floor of Delhi Assembly on Thursday and won it, Hazare said he was confident that the party would win the trust vote as it had taken several pro-people decisions in a short span.
