Social activist Anna Hazare, who led the India Against Corruption Movement, will likely declare another round of agitation in Delhi against Prime Minister Narendra Modi's government's apathy in appointing a Lokpal. Dates are to be announced soon.
Hazare said that he will continue the agitation till Swaminathan Commission report, which talks of food security and farmers' welfare, is implemented and Lokayuktas are appointed. He wrote a letter to Modi, saying that there is a huge difference between what the Centre says and its actions. In March this year, Hazare mentioned the letter to Modi and said that the government's assurance to end corruption has not translated into reality.
Addressing a news conference at his native village Ralegan Siddhi, Hazare said that he will announce the dates of the agitation in another letter to Modi. "Things have not changed in the last three years and the post still remains vacant. However, if the new chief of CBI can be appointed in the absence of the leader of the Opposition, why can't the Lokpal be selected?" he said.
