Jammu: Lauding Anna Hazare’s campaign for a strong Lokpal Bill, Mahatma Gandhi’s grandson Kannubhai Gandhi hails the social activist as a ray of hope in the fight against corruption.

He said, “More people should participate in the movement against corruption and support Team Anna to bring a strong Ombudsman in the country.”

However, few days back former West Bengal governor and grandson of Mahatma Gandhi, Gopal Krishna Gandhi, praised Anna and expected that a reliable institution would be formed to deal with corruption, but before it the country would witness a wider movement.”

“Today, Leaders are misusing public money, while Gandhijee once had observed three-day fasting only for three rupees,” Kannubhai told Dainik Jagran.

He said, “Once his grandmother Kasturba Gandhi had kept three rupees, lying on a table, in a box safely. Two days later, when she narrated Gandhijee about placing the money in the box, he got angry for keeping it safe. Gandhijee always believed in giving financial aid to the poor and needy rather than collecting money.”

Repeating the Gandhijee’s words for Anna, Kannubhai said that, “It is your fault if you have not been able to achieve the victory. Do not give up…make effort again and again to accomplish your target.”
