Varanasi: Social activist Anna Hazare on Wednesday(November 12) said that he will re-launch his agitation in Delhi if the government fails to bring a strong Lokpal law before 2014 and he will then focus on getting 'Right to Reject' for the people. The anti-corruption crusader, who is on a two-day visit in Varanasi along with Former Army Chief VK Singh, said this while addressing a youth meet organised at Mhatma Gnadhi Kashi Vidyapeeth.
"If the central government does not bring Lokpal soon, I will go on Satyagraha again at the Ramlila ground in New Delhi," he said. The social activist said that after Lokpal, he plans to rally for a legislation to enact 'Right to Reject'.
Hazare said though the government had gained independence in 1947, the country still was plagued by corruption, hooliganism and loot and there was need to eliminate such features of Indian politics. Addressing the youth, Hazare urged them to stand against such evils and join in the second fight for freedom.
