Anna Hazare visits Bapu Kuti at Sewagram
WARDHA: Social worker Anna Hazare visited Bapu Kuti at Sewagram on Friday morning. This was his first visit to the ashram after a successful Lokpal movement in Delhi.
Hazare said he had visited Bapu Kuti in May last to get inspiration and energy. It is a centre for recharging the battery of thoughts, he said. Hazare visited all the kutis. He also held prayers at the place where the Mahatma used to sleep inside the Bapu Kuti. After sitting under the tree planted by Mahatma Gandhi, Anna said he derived energy from the place to perform social service and concentrate on his thoughts.
When asked about the theft of Bapu's glasses which is being probed by CID, Hazare said he did not know about it. He said he would like to spread the message of Gandhi.
Commenting on the increasing prices of petrol, Hazare said it indicated exploitation of environment and natural resources. Time has come to think of Gandhi's message. It is a warning bell, but people are not ready to change the lifestyle, Hazare said. He also called for bringing about development by making village economy strong.
