“If the court has asked you to furnish a bond then furnish it. If you are accusing someone of conspiring against you, approach the court and give evidence. Refusing to submit a bond amounts to disrespecting the court,” Hazare said.

Hazare was in the national capital on Sunday for his campaign to mobilize support for ‘Asli Azadi Abhiyan,’ a movement to fight against the corrupt system.

“Earlier activists took pride in going to jail. But now going to jail has become fashionable,” the social activist reportedly said when the media asked him whether he has any advice for Kejriwal.

The former Delhi chief minister’s judicial custody was on Friday extended till June 6 for not furnishing the bail bond.

In his defamation complaint, Gadkari had alleged that he was defamed by the AAP convener, who had included his name in the party's list of ‘India's most corrupt’.
