Hazare Threatens Fast Over Lokpal

MUMBAI (TIP): Veteran social activist Anna Hazare accused the UPA Government of stabbing in his back on the issue of Lokpal Bill and once again threatened hunger strike from October 2 to press for a strong anticorruption law. Expressing disappointment over the Centre’s failure to secure the passage of the “Jan Lokpal Bill” in Parliament, the 75-year-old activist said the Government has “stabbed him in his back” over the issue, on which he has undertaken multiple fasts in Delhi and Mumbai since 2011.

“I will once again sit on a fast from October 2 at the Ramlila Ground in Delhi,” the anti-corruption crusader told reporters on the sidelines of a programme here. In the past, Hazare has repeatedly assailed the Congress-led Government over its failure to pass a strong Lokpal Bill as promised in 2011. A few weeks ago, he shot off a letter tothe PM expressing his disappointment over the Government’s inability to enact a strong legislation to check graft in public institutions.
