Will go on fast again if bill not passed : Anna Hazare

New Delhi : Anna Hazare repeated Tuesday he would launch another agitation in Delhi on Dec 27 if his version of the Lokpal bill was not passed by parliament in current winter session.

“We will agitate again at Ramlila maidan from Dec 27. The Jan Lokpal bill has to be passed,” Hazare told reporters here.

Hazare has been pressing the government for a strong anti-graft Lokpal bill that would bring the prime minister, the CBI and the lower bureaucracy completely under its ambit.
