Anti-corruption activist Anna Hazare has already declared he will not be a part of any political party that could be formed and according to some it's now time for him to call it a day and retire.
"Anna Hazare I think, has shot his bolt, and I think it is best for him to retire and be a moral father or uncle figure in his little village Ralegan Siddhi," sociologist Dipankar Gupta told CNN-IBN.
According to Gupta, Hazare should have first won his war against corruption and then should have taken to the path of politics.
"What would have been a better option for him(Anna Hazare) is to put his head down and work on the anti- corruption front. Win that battle and then get ready for the war," he said.
"I think he has given up the battle too early and is spoiling for a war on many fronts. That is were he has made a strategic mistake," he added.
Gupta also said that he was skeptical of someone other than Anna Hazare initiating and heading a movement against corruption.
"The fact is if someone else takes up(the cause), and I shudder the thought of Baba Ramdev stepping in, all this frustration will be used in a direction which would be far from savoury," he said.
Incidentally, Ramdev had announced yesterday that along with his campaign against black money, he would be protesting against the government's inaction over the creation of the Lokpal.
