New Delhi, Aug 19 (IANS) In the first such admission by a Congress leader, east Delhi MP Sandeep Dikshit Friday said the government may have erred in sensing the public mood regarding the arrest of civil society leader Anna Hazare.

Dikshit, who is also the son of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, said at a public meeting in Vinod Nagar in west Delhi: “The government might have erred in gauging the mood of the people.”

Minister of State for Home Jitendra Singh was also present at the function organised to mark the birth anniversary of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi.

However, it is “more important that how all this ends” than what happened earlier, Dikshit said, adding he hoped the issue will end amicably.
