His five-day fast for a strong anti-graft law drew groundswell support across the country, but social reformer Anna Hazare feels that if he contested an election, he will lose his security deposit.

“If I stand for election, I will lose my security deposit,” Anna Hazare said jest-fully answering a question at a press conference on Sunday.

“(People) Take Rs100 and vote, take bottle of wine to vote, an election costs Rs 6-7 crore,” he said.

Anna Hazare stressed that electoral reforms can rectify this situation.

“Give the option of dislike, if all candidates are bad, then voters will not vote for anyone,” he said.
