print   ·   T  T  

Accusing the government of “betraying” people on the Lokpal Bill issue, activist Anna Hazare on Thursday said he would start another hunger strike before the winter session of Parliament if immediate action is not taken for the passage of the anti-corruption bill in Parliament. In a letter to Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Mr. Hazare asked Dr. Singh to urge the President to convene a special Parliament session to pass the Bill if his government wanted to avoid the “blot” of turning back on its promises. He said he would hold his fast in Ramlila Maidan. — PTI
