Critics do not ignore positive results of work: Anna
"But I feel one should for no reason not indulge in incoherent discussions," he said in his latest blog posting. For the last few years, he claimed, people have been talking incoherently about him and his organisation.
"There are many people out there who throw accusations and counter-accusations on our organisations but fail to see our work and contribution done for the betterment of the society and the nation," he said. People from all over India and abroad visit a tiny village like Ralegan Sidddhi to have a glimpse of our development activities, he said, adding till today 6 lakh people have visited the village and taken inspiration.
"Five people have done their PhD on our village`s development. Government felicitated me with Padmashree and Padmabhushan. It is unfortunate that some people tend to ignore these positive realities," he said.
He said during his 12 years of army service, he had to put up a fight against 11 army officers for the soldiers` lodging, boarding and other questions. "Following this I occupied a special place in the heart of the soldiers and they gave me a pen name `Shastriji`," he said.
"In spite of the hardships and troubles, it was clear in my mind that I was doing this for my country and after 12 years of service I got the right to pension. The role of `Jai Jawan` was for my country and now to fulfill my role of `Jai Kisaan` I took voluntary retirement from the army," he added.
