Anna Hazare in the context of rural development praised the work of chief ministers Nitish Kumar and — here’s where he slipped up and deviated from the script — Narendra Modi. That’s going to cost him. But Narendrabhai is a master strategist. He promptly — at 5 AM in the morning — wrote an open letter to Anna Hazare.
Antonia Maino no doubt was not amused by Anna’s endorsement of Modi’s work. So she must have asked her minions to get Anna to make amends. Anna backtracked.
“I praised only the development work done by Narendra Modi and Nitish Kumar in rural areas. Alongside I clarified that I am equally opposed to any form of communal disharmony.” He said his only goal was “to save this country from corruption”. [Source.]
Good work, Anna. You will go far.
