Congress backs Pawar, questions Hazare’s GandhismDecember 8th, 2011 - 12:22 am ICT by IANS
New Delhi, Dec 7 (IANS) The Congress Wednesday questioned Gandhian credentials of Anna Hazare for justifying the recent assault on Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar and said any remark which incites people was condemnable.
Party spokesman Manish Tewari said the basic principle of the Gandhian thought was non-violence and wondered how anyone justifying violence can be a Gandhian.
On Pawar’s statement that Justice P.B. Sawant Commission had spoken about the maladministration and corruption by Hazare, Tewari said that the report of the commission was self-speaking.
“The report is in the public domain and for everyone to read and come to a conclusion,” he said.
Pawar had Wednesday hit back at Hazare for justifying the recent physical attacks on politicians but appealed to his partymen to refrain from any violence.
