Anna warns Modi govt on Delhi Janlokpal Bill


Well-known social activist Anna Hazare on Tuesday said that he would launch an agitation against the NDA’s national government if it puts obstructions in the way of Janlokpal Bill, introduced in Delhi Assembly by Arvind Kejriwal’s AAP.

Anna Hazare was talking to the media after AAP leaders Kumar Vishwas and Sanjay Singh met him at his native Ralegan Siddhi village in Maharashtra to brief him on the salient features of the Janlokpal Bill tabled on Monday.

“If that is the case then I assured them of my full support. I told them I am with them,” Hazare said.

He said the central government lacks the will to fight corruption and there should be no “parochial attitude” on the issue of dealing with graft.

One of its prominent poll promises, the AAP emphasised that the Bill is similar to its original 2011 version.
