Ralegan Siddhi (Maharashtra): Social activist Anna Hazare said on Tuesday that Aam Admi Party (AAP) leader Arvind Kejriwal was not his enemy and that he is ready to talk to the AAP leader. "We are not enemies...I did not know he wanted to talk to me. I am ready to talk to Arvind Kejriwal," said Anna Hazare while talking to the reporters here.

Clarifying on the letter he wrote to Kejriwal, Hazare said: "I was told that SIM cards were issued in my name during the India Against Corruption (IAC) movement, the sale of which led to collection of funds. I have no connection in this regard." "Since I felt my name was being misused, so I wrote the letter seeking a clarification. I have no interest in the money, just my name should not be misused."

He said he would not engage in the poll campaign for any party and also questioned Kejriwal's claim that he would pass the Jan Lokpal Bill at Ramlila Maidan here on December 29, arguing that such bills can be passed only in Parliament. He also said that he has received a reply from Kejriwal, but has not read it yet.
