Anna Hazare undecided on ties with Swami Agnivesh

RALEGAN SIDDHI: Veteran social activist Anna Hazare on Saturday said that there was no harm in talking to social activist Swami Agnivesh.

Hazare made these remarks while interacting with mediapersons at his native village of Ralegan Siddhi in Maharashtra.

"What is the harm in talking (to him), we will think about it," Hazare said.

The Gandhian activist's remarks comes a day after Agnivesh expressed desire to apologize to Hazare after their fall out, when he was sitting on a hunger strike with an aim to exert pressure on the Central government to pass an effective Lokpal Bill.

Agnivesh had said that he was willing to apologize to Hazare after he made an exit from the popular reality show 'Bigg Boss'.

Earlier, in a video that was also posted on YouTube, Agnivesh was heard talking to a person named "Kapil", that many presume was Union Human Resource Development Minister Kapil Sibal, during the stand off between the Central government and Hazare in August.

In the video, Agnivesh was reportedly heard passing malicious comments about his fellow agitating civil society activists led by Hazare.

The controversial video had raised doubts over Agnivesh' claims of supporting Hazare's cause and ended in a fall out between the two.
