Tariq Ali on Anna Hazare : “A tin-pot dictator”

"The mass uprisings in Egypt and Tunisia are far removed from the rantings of the tin-pot dictator Anna. Of course, most people hate corruption and he tapped into this well of anger, but it’s become obvious that his megalomania, pseudo-puritanism and authoritarian practices will make this a relatively short-lived affair and yet another Indian cult with diminishing supporters." – Interview in Times Crest Edition, here http://www.timescrest.com/society/we-learnt-little-from-history-7731
