Speaking to reporters in his hometown Ralegan Siddhi in adjoining Ahmednagar district, Hazare said despite his poor health, he was ready to hit the road to safeguard the RTI Act.
Hazare, in his deposition before the trial court of judge Anand Yawalkar, said he knew Patil as an elected representative.
Javadekar showed a purported video of Hazare, in which the activist claimed that Delhi Chief Minister and AAP supremo Arvind Kejriwal after coming to power has not once met him.
Hirannaiah who died due to liver disease was known for targeting the corrupt in a fashion that had earned him the name ‘Karnataka’s Anna Hazare.’
Anna Hazare said he believed in the Constitution of India, in which there was no mention of election symbols and political parties.
The apex court had earlier asked the government about the steps being taken to appoint the Lokpal to deal with complaints of corruption in high places, the activist added.
Anna Hazare ended his six-day fast over the demand of appointment of anti-corruption watchdog Lokpal on February 5.
As per provisions of the Lokpal and Lokayuktas Act, 2013, a Lokpal as anti-corruption authority or ombudsman would be set up at the Central level, while a Lokayukta will be set up in each state.
Hazare had sat on a fast for demands including the appointment of Lokpal and implementation of the Swaminathan Commission's report for farmers on January 30.
Anna Hazare described the various issues raised in the meeting and gave the action points that the government would follow in the days to come.
Hazare, who began his indefinite fast on January 30 over the appointment of anti-corruption watchdogs, has lost around 4.30 kg weight in the last seven days, doctors said.
Anti-corruption crusader Anna Hazare has accused the Maharashtra government of lying about the assurance made to him while reiterating his resolve to continue with his indefinite fast.
On the sixth day of Hazare's fast, Thackeray met the 81-year-old anti-graft crusader at his protest site in Ralegan Siddhi village and extended his full support to his agitation.
Hazare, the face of the Lokpal movement, has been demanding the appointment of anti-corruption watchdogs at the Centre and in Maharashtra and resolution of farmers' issue.
Earlier in the day, Bharatiya Janata Party ally Shiv Sena came out in Hazare's support, urging him to emulate socialist leader Jayaprakash Narayan and lead an agitation against corruption.
