MUMBAI: Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare warned the government of launching an agitation to press the demand for implementation of the Lokpal on the Ramlila ground in Delhi.
“Corruption has not ended. My conscience is asking me to re-launch the agitation”, Hazare said at a press conference in Ahmednagar.
He did not make any formal announcement regarding the agitation, but said, he continues to receive complaints on corruption from all parts of the country.
Hazare expressed resentment at the inaction by the Modi government in dealing with corruption.
“Non-implementation of the Lokpal is a great insult to sentiment of the people. No party wants to execute it because they are scared of losing power. The state governments should have implemented it,” Hazare said, adding that political parties had no will to end corruption.
Hazare targeted the Central government saying that the administration continues to be corrupt despite all promises. “I wrote 40 letters to Manmohan Singh and he replied to 20 of them. I wrote several letters to Narendra Modi but did not receive even a single reply,” Hazare said.
Hazare plans to write another letter to PM Modi, raising all the issues related to corruption.
“I was silent for three years but time has come to re-launch the agitation against corruption”, he said.
