New Delhi: Even as the government launched concerted efforts to end the standoff with the civil society over the Lokpal Bill, Anna Hazare on Wednesday hit back saying it still lacks will power to fight corruption.
Addressing a sea of his supporters at the Ramlila Ground on the ninth day of his fast, Anna said, “Despite hectic negotiations, it appears that the government is still not serious in fighting corruption. The government lacks will power to remove corruption from the society.”
Attacking the government, he said, “Yesterday three of our associates met government representatives but still no agreement could be reached on various issues. Three sticking points are yet to be resolved. The government is still not ready to accept our demand for including lower bureaucracy and all the state Lokayukta’s under the purview of Lokpal panel.”
“We want that everyone from village to ministries should come under the ambit of the Lokpal,” Anna said adding, “Fight against corruption will be fruitless unless a strong anti-graft legislation is put in place.”
The social worker warned that he won’t budge till the government accepts the civil society’s demand for including lower bureaucracy and CVCs under Lokpal.
