Srinagar, Apr 9: Noting that people's power was not only about "three nights of candles and music", Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Omar Abdullah today said he was amused to see the sort of people trying to jump on the Anna Hazare bandwagon.


"People's power is a continuous process and not three nights of candles and music," Omar wrote on micro-blogging site twitter.

The Chief Minister said he was amused "to see the sort of people trying to jump on the Hazare bandwagon."

"I'm all for people's power but with great power comes even greater responsibility," he said after the anti-corruption crusader called off his fast-unto-death at Jantar Mantar in Delhi.

"Now that victory has been declared, (it is) time to ask who will the people's reps (representatives) be accountable to and how will accountability be enforced," Omar said.

Hazare ended his 98-hour protest after the government issued a gazette notification constituting a 10-member Joint Committee of ministers and civil society activists, including him, to draft an effective Lokpal Bill. PTI
