Hazare's 'clean image' is going to be a major boost for the Trinamool at a time when the party is trying to make its presence felt at the national level. In January this year, Hazare had written to all major parties seeking their response on the pro-people agenda that he wanted them to take up, but TMC was the only party which responded to letter positively, and hence Anna Hazare decided to campaign for the party.
But, is it the original fact behind the alliance of Anna Hazare with TMC or is there any other inside story?
Dr. Shonjeet Mukherjee, a political science professor at Calcutta University said, “By this move he wants to prove that he is not with BJP, and the other option now is to support someone who has a clean image and at the same time he is also sending out a message to Arvind Kejriwal that 'I am not with you'.”
